The Evening Visual Structure Seminar starts with an overview of all the tools and techniques that I’ve learned by shooting with both DSLRs and Cine-Style cameras at the SNL Film Unit.
Next up is Visual Structure—to me, this is what cinematography is all about. Inspired by the ground-breaking work of visual consultant Bruce Block, you will learn how to identify and control the seven core visual components of any image: SPACE, LINE, SHAPE, COLOR, TONE, MOVEMENT and RHYTHM. Using examples from my own work as well as from my filmmaking heroes, you will learn how the visual masters of filmmaking use these techniques to create their signature styles: from Stanley Kubrick (one-point perspective), to David Fincher (control of tonal range); from the Coen Brothers (shape motifs) to Wes Anderson (flat space and limited color palette).
If these concepts affect you even a fraction of how they affected me, it will completely change the way you shoot and watch films. With these principles, you will know how to enhance any visual storytelling experience – be that a movie, a commercial, a documentary, a wedding video—you name it.
