Daytime Cinematography Workshop

The Daytime Cinematography Workshop provides an on-set learning experience, giving you a behind-the scenes look at the process Alex uses in his filmmaking. He’ll show you how he deals with working in a fast turn-around environment like Saturday Night Live while still delivering his best work, so that you can do the same no matter what you shoot— from commercials, movies and documentaries to weddings, corporate videos and live events.

You’ll start the day with a short film script and totally break it down; He’ll show you how he scouts locations, design shots, puts together his lighting plans, and selects his gear package. Then you’ll actually shoot a few of the scenes. He’ll pull his crew from the audience and demonstrate exactly how he sets up camera moves, lights a master shot with matching coverage, and works with audio. He’ll take the footage all the way through his normal on-set workflow, from the camera all the way to the edit using the latest footage management tools. Finally, you’ll end with a look to the future of 4K delivery, discussing vital 4K considerations both on set and in post.

Evening Visual Structure Seminar

The Evening Visual Structure Seminar starts with an overview of all the tools and techniques that Alex has learned by shooting with both DSLRs and Cine-Style cameras at the SNL Film Unit.

Next up is Visual Structure—to Alex, this is what cinematography is all about. Inspired by the ground-breaking work of visual consultant Bruce Block, you will learn how to identify and control the seven core visual components of any image: SPACE, LINE, SHAPE, COLOR, TONE, MOVEMENT and RHYTHM. Using examples from Alex's own work as well as from his filmmaking heroes, you will learn how the visual masters of filmmaking use these techniques to create their signature styles: from Stanley Kubrick (one-point perspective), to David Fincher (control of tonal range); from the Coen Brothers (shape motifs) to Wes Anderson (flat space and limited color palette).

If these concepts affect you even a fraction of how they affected Alex, it will completely change the way you shoot and watch films. With these principles, you will know how to enhance any visual storytelling experience – be that a movie, a commercial, a documentary, a wedding video—you name it.

You definitely don't want to miss out on the event! Sign up today and get ready to live!
