THE ART & CRAFT OF CINEMATOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
This November marks Film Independent’s fourth-year partnership with the US Embassy in Cairo and the Cairo International Film Festival. This year, Film Independent will produce a workshop focused on the art and craft of cinematography that will be led by American cinematographer Irvin Liu.
This five-day immersive workshop focuses on the art and craft of storytelling from a cinematography perspective. It will expose the participants to the fundamental tools and principles used by the cinematographer to create compelling images generated from the context of the script. In addition to demonstrations of lighting and camera techniques, the workshop will provide instructions on current workflow practices, and film analysis and discuss the creative collaboration with the director and their creative team including the production designer, costume designer, and other members of the camera and lighting departments (gaffer, grip). The workshop will also cover the role of the cinematographer in the post-production process.
