Mastering the Camera Lens for Film Drama

A 1-day workshop to learn about the true power of the camera lens! With hands-on practice!

In all movie making endeavors, there is no doubt that cameras, lighting, sets & costumes have a tremendous impact on the look and feel of any film and consequently on its success. However, none have as much an impact on the finished product as the often neglected or taken for granted, camera lens!

This workshop, led by André Bériault, walks you through the “roles” of the lens, its “structures” & “controls” and their combined impact on a director’s choices & oft-difficult compromises, whether he is using film or digital media. The ultimate aim of the workshop is to help you “see” your film going through the lens as you shoot, not later when it is usually too late!
