“TEN STEPS TO BETTER IMAGES: THE SIMPLE TOOLS OF CINEMA ANALYZED AND DEMONSTRATED”

Thursday, August 29, 2013 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: The Studio Center, 915 Fee Drive, Sacramento, CA 95815
Description: August 29th 6p-9p Workshop with cinematographer Mark Herzig
“TEN STEPS TO BETTER IMAGES: THE SIMPLE TOOLS OF CINEMA ANALYZED AND DEMONSTRATED”
The art and craft of cinematography is often perceived as impenetrable, and the constant barrage of technology adds to the confusion. The tools and techniques for creating cinematographic images are constantly changing, to be sure, but the basic toolbox and skill set has remained the same for nearly a hundred years. Cinematographer Mark Herzig will walk you through the gear and the workflow, and pull back the curtain on the magic that makes the movies. We’ll light a scene for three angles, for moving camera, and outline ten ways you can make better images, including:
· low-cost lighting solutions that won’t make your film look cheap
· getting the most out of your camera’s viewing system
· what “correct” exposure looks like, and why it matters
· improving “existing” light for higher quality imagery
Call them tricks, tips, or techniques, they all come from the real world, and they form the foundation of the filmmaking process. Come sharpen your skills, and learn some new ones! Bring your gloves!

Award-winning cinematographer and director Mark Herzig has lit over 5000 music videos, commercials, corporate image pieces, documentaries and narrative films both long and short. His film “et cetera” (which he directed and photographed) won Best Cinematography at the 2001 New York Independent International Film Festival, and in 2004, his film “Lunch” was an official selection at the prestigious short film festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Recently, he photographed director Ophir Gottlieb’s “Rubicon’s Broken”, which was voted “Best Feature” at the 2013 Studio City
Film Festival in Los Angeles. He has also taught cinematography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Expression College for Digital Arts, and the PCFE Film School in Prague, Czech Republic.
