By exploring the mechanics and politics of cinematography and postproduction with noted experts, the Camera Studio asks the attending cinematographers to consider how their aesthetic and technical choices shape the stories they tell.
Collective work of the highest standard depends on the lively exchange of opinions and on not shying away from rethinking proven methods and principles. The workshop welcomes renowned cinematographers as well as ARRI experts and seeks to encourage conversations with the Talents by examining the use of lighting, colour grading and the latest camera technology and their roles in bringing one’s creative vision to the screen.
I'm a good team worker and although my main focus in the hands-on workshop was the lighting, I also helped out the camera assistant when they were in need of advice. I contributed a feminist point of view to the discussions about gazes in cinematography and how to be aware of the history of the male gaze and its complications.Thoughts from a Talent, 2020
