This theoretical and practical workshop will explore how to use composition to guide the viewer’s eye and achieve the desired visual effect. Participants will discover a broad range of cinematic terms, including framing, covering a scene and camera movement, in order to develop a better understanding of how to translate their intentions to the screen with greater agility.
