Cinematography | 3 month certificate program

Programme Overview

What is Cinematography?

Also known as the Director of Photography, a cinematographer is the master of movement and light. Their role is to translate the script into visuals and shoot the video. While they may not be the one holding the camera, they are the mastermind behind deciding what the final video should look like – coloured or black and white, vibrant or dull etc. The cinematographer works closely with the director and helps them bring their creative vision to life.
