Are you a cinematographer who would like to learn more about the inner workings of Hollywood? Are you great with a camera and want to learn how to make it to the top? Or do you just want a behind the scenes peek at filmmaking? If so, don’t miss the June 7 Boulder Filmmaking Incubator!
Cinematographer, Michael Watson, is a recent addition to Boulder; choosing our mountain life-style over LA’s hub bub to raise his family. Like so many LA refugees, he now has the best of both worlds. Michael has extensive commercial and feature film experience shooting for clients such as the NFL Channel and Miller Beer. Earlier this year he completed a 3 month shoot in India for the high-octane, action film, “Roar,” set to be released in 2014. Michael recently returned from Hawaii where he DP’d the pilot of a cable TV sci-fi series.
Michael will speak about the journey of learning the craft of cinematographer; working his way up from camera assistant to DP. He will share what it is like to work with award winning cinematographers such as Claudio Miranda (“The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button”, and “Life Of Pi”), Amir Mokri (“Bad Boys II”), and Daniel Pearl ( numerous music videos and television commercials.)
