Calling all Filmmakers
In cinema, we create worlds on screen. These days many of us are living most of our lives in a world of screens. We take framing, camera angle, and lens choice for granted – but control of these elements is foundational to the moving picture. In this session, Cinema Department chair Dave Martin discusses the foundational cinematic concept of mise-en-scene and demonstrates the effects of various lenses on image-making.
