One of eight in a Kodak Workshop Series...
A note about the A.F.T.R.S.: This is a hands on workshop for students. Students do the set ups and ask questions. There are moments when this adds something of interest to an understanding of methods used on a set. For instance, a master cinematographer tells one student to never use the video assist to determine whether an exposure or light set-up was correct on a set because it is deceptive, and another tells not to use the black and white split in the video assist to determine an exposure of black and white film because it is panchromatic. Although, it seems simpler to have students shoot black and white still film in order to develop an eye for tones as opposed to colors?
In one of the workshops a Master Cinematographer comments on how the student's cross-training, taking turns on different jobs each day, was a good idea. The most significant thing to take from the series is an analysis of how different cinematographers personal vision and approaches to lighting will effect the final look of a film.
This was one of 8 Master Classes, Workshops with Master Cinematographers, Directors of Photography (D.P.). 8 workshops were produced, taped at A.F.T.R.S., the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, with support from Kodak's Worldwide Student Program.
