This 2-Day comprehensive workshop explores visual storytelling with dynamic camera movement and skillful actor blocking.

Participants will learn how to visualize, choose optimum camera positions, camera movement, and lens choices in relations with actor blocking.

When & Where
Solar Film and Video
Solar is a one-stop production company equipped to handle a project from concept and filming to editing, audio post production, multi-media, graphic/web design and media distribution. Over the last couple of years we have been conducted wildly successful hands on workshops to show students the tricks of the trade in the filmmaking field be it lighting and camera or script break downs.
The founder of solar films, and the instructor of the workshops, ERIC LAU is an alumnus of NYU's Graduate Film Program and has worked for 33 years in the film industry. Lau has been a Director/Producer/Cinematographer for feature films and commercials ranging from Snapple to the Blue Man Group.
Our focus is to demystify filmmaking to show that independent/low-budget filmmaking does not have to look cheap, and professional filmmaking does not have to be expensive. We emphasize hands-on practice over textbook theories. We call it filmmaking, not film studies.
