Alliance of Woman Directors Presents: Tech Talk for Directors - Below the Line Communication
3400 West Olive Ave Suite 250
Burbank, California 91505
Ever felt overwhelmed, challenged, or tested when directing a project because you didn't know which gear terms you needed to use to get your story told? Director and cinematographer (and obsessive gear-head) Sarah Phillips noticed that many directors, but especially female directors, feel under-qualified or insecure when communicating with cinematographers and other crew members about equipment. Please join Sarah for a focused crash course in film gear; as related to the director/DP relationship. Topics will include a look at the different camera options, types and focal lengths of lenses, camera movements, and technical shot names and more.
Sarah Phillips is a director, cinematographer, writer, and producer in Los Angeles. Her short film, "Smile: A Musical," played in 2017 at Dances With Films and Holly Shorts Film Festival, both Academy-qualifying festivals, as well as placing as a finalist at Moondance Int’l. She is attached to direct two indie feature films, and is in development on other television, film, digital series, and virtual reality projects.
