24-2205 Cinematography for Visual Effect


Lectures and examples of best current practices will inform and guide the students to a better understanding of the work required of the Visual Effects Cinematographer. Students will plan and execute simple, specific visual effects sequences that will give them an exposure to the basic principles of integrated Visual Effects production, with the emphasis on the creation of the cinematographic elements. This will be done in concert with elements from synthetic (computer generated) and physical effects sources, such as models, miniatures, bluescreen, greenscreen, motion controlled, computer controlled cameras, and artificial characters motivated by motion capture techniques. The design and creation of the cinematographic elements of the successful visual effects sequence is integrally relative to the design and execution of the aforementioned contributing elements and sources. Working collaboratively with these other disciplines in the context of simple, defined exercises and projects will give the student cinematographer a solid perspective on the best practices methodology and production of cinematographic elements of the successful visual effects sequence.
