Film 267: The Documentary -- Week 3

This week we were joined in class by our DP Evan Carter.

He talked about his experiences building a portfolio after college and as a self taught cinematographer, director and editor. He also gave an excellent workshop on how to set up an effective interview using what space is available to you in a given location. He talked about tips and tricks for visual storytelling, creating and lighting a shot that that aligns with the values of the story you’re trying to tell as well as dealing with common challenges when filming in small or less visually interesting spaces.

Students then broke up into groups and did a quick location scout and set up and lit their own mock interviews.
