3400 West Olive Ave Suite 250
Burbank, California 91505
Virtually every creative decision filmmakers make today has been done before, and it’s important to know and honor that lineage.
Celebrate the legacy of this beautiful art form as we discuss key cinematic movements that helped shape modern filmmaking.
Topics Matthew will discuss include:
• Explore why 24fps became part of our creative palette
• Why and when widescreen aspect ratios came into being
• How color motion picture photography evolved from tinted B&W to modern digital cameras
• Multi-packed film stocks and modern digital camera systems
Cinematographer Matthew Irving has lensed an eclectic slate of more than thirty feature films in almost every genre, having built a reputation for his extensive pre-production process, light-hearted nature on set, and passion for film history. Five of his features have premiered at Sundance, including OUTLAWS AND ANGELS, which was shot Spaghetti-Western style on 2-perf 35mm and named one of Variety’s “21 Best Films of Sundance 2016”. Irving's hit theatrical releases WAITRESS (adapted into the 2016 Tony-nominated Broadway musical) and WAITING (starring Ryan Reynolds) both cracked the Box Office “Top Ten”. http://www.matthewirving.com
