EVENT DESCRIPTION:

By examining classic scenes throughout the history of film, we will discuss ways in which the blocking of the actors and camera movement contribute to the storytelling. We’ll also delve into different visual approaches that can reveal crucial story beats and character traits without relying on dialogue and exposition. Other specific topics will include: the art of the “long take”, the effective master shot versus standard “safety” coverage, movement of a dolly shots versus Steadicam and handheld, and how creative blocking can expand the world of the movie beyond the proscenium frame. 

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”.
