Do you want to learn how to make beautiful videos and tell compelling stories with your DSLR camera? Then you are interested in cinematography, the art of moving images!

Our workshop is designed for adults who are interested in learning the fundamentals of cinematography. You’ll learn how to compose a shot, use lighting to create mood and atmosphere, and tell compelling stories through the lens. The workshop will also cover detailed camera setup and settings, lighting setups and techniques, and how to work with a tripod. Learn with Squeaky’s Canon and Sony DSLR cameras, or bring your own!

Participants will have the opportunity to work on practical exercises, shooting short scenes or interviews and experimenting with different lighting setups. You will receive individual feedback and guidance from your instructor, and collaborate with other participants to develop your skills and creativity.

Whether you want to pursue a career in filmmaking or simply want to improve your skills for personal projects or social media, this workshop will give you the tools and confidence to take your videos to the next level.

No experience necessary, beginners welcome! All equipment provided.

Class limited to 8 participants. Members receive a discounted rate. Not a member? Click here to sign up!
