Framing, scale of shots and camera movements will give you a complete overview of the cinematographic vocabulary and make you learn to translate your intentions into images with more dexterity.

No time will be allocated to learning how to use a camera.

Workshop is given in French but questions may be asked in English.

You are encouraged to write a short note describing your project / your experience / your expectations for the instructor to guide you best.
