BRIEF INTRO TO CINEMATOGRAPHY

The essence of creating a modern-day cinematographer is to create multiple individuals just in one person. This training gives any participant the edge to produce, direct, and understand the technical operations on a production set.

This course will produce a modern-day cinematographer who understands the technicalities’ theory and his physical experience from script to screen, creating an individual who can be effective from pre-production processes to the post-production process.

DIRECTING

The film director’s primary task is to interpret the screenplay and translate it visually. He is the creative mind that chooses the aesthetical and technical specifications to implement in his vision. For a successful mission, the director has evolved from every production phase to the final production stage.

Even though directors must oversee the several stages of production, during principal photography, everything could get exponentially hectic. Their personal lives – family, friends, and affairs – are shoved aside to pave the way for film production. Weekends and holidays too. Everything revolves around the production schedule. During the day, there’s a production shoot. At night, they rewrite the script. When it is break time, they rehearse. Lights, costumes, décor, props, camera, actors are all supervised by the director, who’s often multitasking and micromanaging all of those. Directing movies requires an extensive command of the craft. It takes decades to master and centuries to forget.

PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT

Media production requires primary considerations; that’s why the sub-division is in three major phases.

The first phase is named the pre-production stage, which includes

Physical planning
Scripting
Production formats
Clientele
Location scouting.

The second stage is the production itself, mainly the technical crew.

The third stage is post-production and marketing.

The former note brings us to what production management involves and which production crew is in a production set.

THIS SECTION OF THE TRAINING SECTIONED AS PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT AS PM 2.0

Production management targets towards a lesser few but essential crew members, namely

Editors
Accountants
Marketers

Production management PM 2.0 would take this group of individuals basically into;

BUDGETING (ACCOUNTANTS)

Budgeting would go a long way in training the account to identify and value a production correctly.

For instance: gadgets and equipment (cost and rental), Crew members’ value (monetary and skill set), Location, Props, and movie sets.

Budgeting would help an accountant lace all items according to their priority, identify which value to each department, and ascertain its worth.

PRODUCTION PROCESS (EDITORS)

The production process or method is an excellent skill for an editor.

They are a significant part of the production, so they must understand the following process.

The screenplay, camera operations, picture composition, continuity, log-keeping sheet, Picture looks (D.O.P).

All this list of the production process would help an editor finalize the mode of editing and understand the picture quality control to an enhanced level.

As marketing is involved in any organization, marketing is also part of film production. Often, producers skip out a marketer’s presence from film production and invite them after the entire movie production.

Marketers are an essential part of the Pre-production stages; they need to understand the entire production process. Often at times, such questions are asked by clienteles to the marketers.

For instance,

What’s the synopsis of the production?
What’s the moral value of the movie production to society?
What are the end formats of the movie production (versions and final production formats)?
What movie production festivals do you think this production can sell?

Marketers with essential knowledge of these production stages and processes have a better edge setting out any of their productions.

Production management PM 2.0 is a scheduled five-day training involving three days with editors and a day apiece with accountants and marketers.
