Cinematography, the Language of Film: A Crash Course


A cinematographer is the one who translates the vision of the filmmaker into reels. Technicalities and aesthetics are the responsibilities of the cinematographer, and his job is twice as rigid as a still photographer.

The cinematographer is the creative control -- he selects the camera, the film stock, lens, filters, and he is the one to realize the intentions of the director. Their relationship often varies but the cinematographer often acts with complete independence. In this Crash Course on Film Production, we look into the purpose of cinematography and its major of accomplishing the film.
