Filmmaker Sherrie Kauk (Netflix 'LOVE”, CBS 'The Inspectors) will present the tools a cinematographer, director; production designer and other key collaborators use to transform the words of a script into a visual story.
There are choices filmmakers make when designing the story - cameras do not just “point and shoot” and scenes are not just “covered” without deep thematic thought. We will be showcasing the Canon EOS C300 Mark ll camera, along with the decisions on camera settings, lensing, and configuration needed, in order to translate words to the visual language of filmmaking.
- What is the story archetype?
man vs. man; man vs. environment; man vs. himself; man vs. god
- What is the underlining theme of the story?
- How is this theme structurally laid out in the script?
- What is the visual equivalent of the scripted theme?
Space: deep space vs. flat space:
Citizen Kane vs. American Beauty
- How lens choice will capture the space you choose?
The Shining vs. The Godfather vs. Shawshank Redemption
- Choosing Canon camera settings to support this color choice.
- Blocking: Battle of the Sexes: women looking right; men looking left)
- Blocking choices
Inside the action vs. outside the action,
Where to put your camera: movement (Rope vs. Clockwork Orange)
How to rig, move, and set up your camera body
After attending this tonight’s program, filmmakers will be able to deconstruct the movies they watch, to elevate their own realized films to an even higher level. Please join us for a thought-provoking evening.
