Create an Assignment
Use the information presented by the experts in these episodes to have an open discussion on: what the job of a cinematographer is and the importance of this job for the success of the final product. Divide the class into groups of three students and give each student the following roles: Director, Cinematographer, and Production Designer. Each group has to produce a one-minute video using their phones. In creating this video, each member will play a role (Director, Production Designer) and have to communicate to the “Cinematographer” the artistic direction they want to accomplish with each specific shot. Evaluate this assignment by not only how well-produced the video was but also how good the communication and professionalism between the team members were.
