The extended subsidies for this workshop have been filled.

No experience necessary. All equipment provided.

This hands-on intro workshop is designed for women (cis, trans, and genderqueer) who are looking to learn the fundamentals of cinematography. It combines theory and practice of cinematography, and is structured around breaking down the common barriers that women and non-binary folks face when accessing this men-dominated field of practice.

Basic technical aspects of camera operation and lighting principles are taught through demonstration and hands-on practical exercises using VIVO's Blackmagic Cinema Cameras, Panasonic UX-180 4KCanon Rebel T4i high definition camera and interchangeable lenses. Learn how to use manual settings to help you get the best shot. Understand exposure, gain, shutter speed, and white balance. The principals of three-point lighting will also be covered and practiced.

Topics covered:

  • camera functions (lens choice, shutter speed, aperture, ISO/gain, sensors, resolution, focus, frame rate, white balance, filters and more)
  • lighting qualities (softness, directionality, colour, motiviation, intensity, movement, texture and more);
  • framing choices (camera height, camera stabilization, field of view, continuity, and more)
  • making decisions and communicating as a cinematographer or director

 

Alongside these technical skills, you'll learn cinematography terms and their meanings to better communicate your vision with your team members.

You'll also explore marginalized filmmakers, with examples and discussion framed around a historical understanding of sexism, racism and ableism within the field of cinematography and mainstream visual language.

This workshop uses equipment you can rent from VIVO, so it’s a great primer to get you started on your videos! It also benefits participants interested in VIVO’s more intermediary video-making workshops.

 


 Paige Smith (paigesmithfilm.com) is an experimental filmmaker, cinematographer, and educator, with a BFA in Film from Simon Fraser University. Her work has screened around the world, including the Locarno Film Festival (18), Hot Docs (18), and the Vancouver International Film Festival (13, 17 & 18).

Alongside her directorial and cinematography work, Smith works as a filmmaking educator. She has previously instructed at VIVO Media Arts Centre, the Vancouver Art Gallery, and The Cinematheque.

Additionally, Smith has a diverse array of arts organization experience ranging from front of house management at SFU Woodwards, and The Cinematheque, to artist relations work at the Vancouver Queer Film Festival and Vancouver New Music.

She is an avid proponent of curiously exploring life, whether that be approaching unique art forms, empathy towards others, or how to search out new knowledge.
