The Cinematographer as Media Illustrator: Instructor Jacques Haitkin
This class will explore the creative side of cinematography: how to illustrate ideas using the tools of the craft. Focus will be on the complex process of deciding how to shoot sequences and make the right technical choices; based on content, budget, technical limitations, interpretation and target audience.

Mr. Haitkin will explain the art of being technically appropriate and explain the meaning of the concept.  

Topics will encompass all genres and examine emotional values of lighting, composition, and camera movement as filtered through the higher purpose of illustrating subtext.
There will be practical demonstrations and clips from mainstream sources as well as Mr. Haitkin's professional experience.

This class is for new AND returning students.

Class Highlights:
- Scouting interior and exterior locations for light and camera angles
- Inverse Square law
- Facial Portraiture
- Staging/Blocking
