CINEMATOGRAPHY MASTERCLASS WITH
DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY VIVI DRĂGAN VASILE R.S.C.
From Morometii to Filantropica, from film to digital, from the first “Action!” to the first cinema screening.
Combining basic information about film techniques with film history elements, the three meetings of the masterclass aim at offering a general view on the evolution of the cinematography, from the silent films and all the way to the 3D era.
Through examples and screenings of film scenes, important themes will be touched: the relationships between the story and the esthetics of the frame, the justification of choosing a certain shooting style and the work between departments in filmmaking (directing, art directing, make-up, actors).
Participants will learn about the work of a director of photography before the shoot, on set and in post-production and will be able to clarify any type of questions, be they technical or conceptual.
