A Master Class with Frederick Elmes

Run Time: Language:

Synopsis

Legendary cinematographer Fred Elmes, who has worked repeatedly with some of our most important independent film directors, including David Lynch, John Cassavetes, Jim Jarmusch, and Ang Lee, will present a two-hour master class that will be of special interest to professional and aspiring cinematographers. Elmes writes: “I have been thinking lately about the process of making a dramatic moment in a script work on the screen. How well this translation works is always key to eliciting a response from the audience and often determines the fate of the film. Success requires coordination of all aspects of filmmaking (music, sound, art direction, editing). Looking closely at what visual style contributes interests me.” Elmes will screen film clips to illustrate his thoughts on the subject and to spark discussion with class attendees.
