https://events-canonusa.ddreg.me/Events/39866/fundamentals-of-cinematography-with-dp-matthew-irving-module-one-the-history-of-cinema Module One: The History of Cinema Virtually every creative decision filmmaker’s make today is derived from a rich history of pioneers who paved the way. This series will begin by honoring this important lineage as we journey from the days of Eadweard Muybridge’s world-changing wager and the Lumiere Brothers, to the development of sound on film and how it almost ruined cinematography. We will celebrate the legacy of this beautiful art form, as we discuss key cinematic movements that helped shape modern filmmaking, from the Hollywood Studio System to Italian Neo-Realism, from the French New Wave to the New Hollywood of the 70’s. We'll explore why 24fps became part of our creative palette, why and when widescreen aspect ratios came into being, and how color motion picture photography evolved from tinted B&W (to 2-strip and 3-strip Technicolor), to the multi-packed film stocks and modern digital camera systems of today. About the Speaker: Cinematographer Matthew Irving has lensed an eclectic slate of over 30 feature film, including the theatrical releases WAITRESS (which was adapted into the Tony-nominated musical) and WAITING (starring Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris) which both cracked the "top ten" at the Box Office. Five of his features have premiered at Sundance, including OUTLAWS AND ANGELS, which was named one of Variety's "21 Best Films of Sundance 2016”. Matthew graduated from Stanford University with dual BA’s in English and Communications, and earned his MFA from the graduate program at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinema/Television. www.MatthewIrving.com
