This elective provides you with the skills and knowledge to conceptualise and develop cinematographic techniques associated with camera movements. During this elective you will be exposed to a range of film screenings, practical in-class exercises and moving image-based artworks. These viewings are intended to expose you to a range of cinematographic techniques and encourage discussion, debate and creative exploration around the topic of movement in cinematography. You will be introduced to the use of sophisticated camera stabilising techniques and equipment including Steadicam, dolly, jibs and other moving camera rigs.Through lectures, tutorial, seminars, screenings and class exercises you are provided with a historical and conceptual framework in which to conceive of and develop your own creative projects. Projects are to be supported by a set of professional standard production documents and the presentation of seminars related to the development and production of the work.
