HD Cinematography Workshop

The Jacksonville Film Festival is organizing a program called "The Art of HD Cinemategraphy," a part of the Filmmakers Series.

This two-day intensive HD cinematography workshop, led by cinematographer and educator Arledge Armenaki, is designed to teach you the role of the Cinematographer, fundamentals in lighting, how to navigate through the various HD formats and codecs, setting up your camera correctly (monitoring, etc.), and how to approach style with regard to story (storyboards, composition of shot, angles, camera operation).

Participants will have the opportunity to learn hands on as they will spend part time in study sessions on the sound stage at WJCT with a RED Camera, HVX200 and 5D Mark II and part time on a production set with actors and crew shooting a short script on the RED (each Participant will have guided time behind the camera).

The workshop is located at WJCT, 100 Festival Park Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32202, beginning Saturday, May 22, 2010 at 9:00 a.m., and ending Sunday, May 23, 2010 at 6:00 p.m.

ARLEDGE ARMENAKI is a graduate of the American Film Institute (AFI), and has extensive experience in feature film and documentary work. He has trained many other cinematographers in the art through his work at Western Carolina University, North Carolina School of the Arts, and the Brooks Institute of Photography. He is an award winning cinematographer with over 20 years experience in educating successful filmmakers. Some of Arledge's former students include the filmmakers of GEORGE WASHINGTON, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, RAISING VICTOR VARGAS, OBSERVE AND REPORT, CHOKE, EASTBOUND AND DOWN, and GREAT WORLD OF SOUND.
