MASTER CLASS: From Photography Into Film, Short Stories Through Motion Pictures
with Richard Neill
Friday, August 12, 2022 - 10:00 AM
This 3-day workshop explores the intersection of photography and video with the use of motion to create short visual stories. Our goal is to experiment with new technical and creative approaches, stretching our abilities along the digital photography/video continuum, to shape narrative rather than the delivery of a finished project. An introductory session will explore the key features of each medium, review noteworthy hybrid examples, cover techniques and methods, and discuss the direction of projects to be undertaken during the workshop. Participants will spend one day photographing/filming subjects in and around Ketchum; the final day will be devoted to editing and presentation of work. Students are expected to bring digital cameras of any kind (and a tripod if needed) for use during the workshop.
Age and ability: 16 years and older, some photography experience suggested.
This 3-day workshop takes place Fri–Sun, Aug 12–14, 10am–6pm.
