Cinematography or ‘painting with light’ is one of the most exciting areas of the filmmaking process, where the Director of Photography has the responsibility to collaborate with the director, production designer and art department to create a distinct visual landscape in which the story can be told.
You will learn about the numerous roles existing within the camera department and how they work together, for example: the DoP, Camera Operator, Focus Puller, Clapper Loader and Gaffer.
The MA Cinematography award will provide you with an invaluable insight into professional working practices, on-set etiquette, and the inner workings of the camera department and provide you with key industry relevant skills. You will also learn about the craft skills and creative techniques for camera movement and lighting.
As there is a focus on digital cinematography, this programme explores the various ways that imagery is processed from postproduction through to colour grading and visual effects.
You will work with students on the MA Post Production programme to strengthen the relationship between obtaining images, look development and final colour grading. You will also gain knowledge of how to manage a digital image production pipeline from start to finish.
"Film School gave me an environment where I could work on my ideas. I know more about the kinds of films I want to make now, and I know a lot more about the industry than I did."
MA Filmmaking Graduate
"The MA was a truly formative and professional program that elicited a range of skills that I had previously experimented with, but did not fully realize. With the hands-on and practical nature of the course and the challenge of producing real content through productions and exercises, I was able to express completely my filmic palette and get regular feedback on my ideas and the quality of my work. Through this experience, I created a body of work which I was proud of and ultimately could showcase my range and ambition. It was a program that pushed me on all levels."
