Analyzing Your RE-Mix Clip

Cinematography is an Art

A cinematographer is responsible for making lighting choices, placing cameras and adjusting camera movements to enhance the scene 

The lighting is crucial.  Cinematographers must understand how the light reflects off subjects and enhances mood and setting.

Cinematographers choose the lens, framing, camera placement, focal length and depth of field.

Camera Movement:
Make the camera work for different shots and how it follows and flows through a scene.  Camera movement involves fixed shots, crane shots, dolly work, handhelds, tilts and pans.
