Cinematography Lab – Film Shooting Workshop

Cinematography Lab - Film Shooting Workshop

Cinematography Lab is a Workshop on the theory, technique, and language of shooting film, created in collaboration with Shot Academy.

The Workshop will take place in Florence in the prestigious San Firenze complex, which hosts the Franco Zeffirelli International Centre for the Performing Arts.

The Workshop aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills of the members of the Camera Department, with particular emphasis on the practice of Cinematography.

Cinematography Lab includes 8 theoretical lessons and 12 practical ‘training on set’ sessions, real film sets set up within the evocative spaces of the historic complex of San Firenze.

The focus of the training on set is on movements of the camera, composition of the image, and techniques of lighting.
