Description

Join Brass Tacks Collective for a two-hour workshop on Composition, Lighting & Color - led by Daniel Piatt!

In this course we will cover the three most important elements of any visual medium…composition, color and lighting. We will take a fun, interactive approach to learning the basic parameters of each and then examine and discuss real world examples. We will answer questions like “What makes an image stand out?” “How does color impact the viewer?” “Why do Hollywood movies look so darn good?” This course will give you a quick overview of the three pillars, a list of valuable resources for additional learning, as well as practical applications that will help you improve your visual skillset immediately.




ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR: DANIEL PIATT

Daniel Piatt began his career as a pre-teen making terrible VHS films with his brothers and friends. Fortunately, he didn’t stop there and decided to further his education at Oral Roberts University. He started as a theater major, immediately realized he had no acting talent and eventually left with a degree in film production.

After graduation, he started working on music videos, documentaries, and narrative shorts. His passion for telling intricate and exciting stories led him to direct a series of narrative films that have screened in festivals all over the world. His films have garnered numerous awards and his WWII feature “God and Country” aired on The Military Channel.

An avid traveler, Daniel has spent time in over 20 countries and has worked on multiple international productions. Some of his highlights include working as a TV producer at the World’s Fair in Germany as well as a short doc he produced in Kenya for the non-profit organization, Food for the Hungry.

Recently Daniel has had the opportunity to further expand his experiences to include reality TV, including directing multiple episodes for a series entitled “Sports Dads”, starring Deion Sanders. He works as a director/DP on commercials, web series, marketing films and more.




FAQs


Is ID required for the event?

No ID required, unless we think you're crashing ;)


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

TRANSPORTATION: Driving yourself is one option, but if you're looking for public transportation, there is a DART rail stop less than one block from Thanksgiving Tower. You will exit the train at Akard Station and walk approx 500 feet down Pacific Ave toward Thanksgiving Square. You may enter Thankgiving Tower on the Pacific side.

PARKING: You have a few parking options: (1) There is a public parking garage nextdoor to Thanksgiving Tower, just past the light at Stone Place crosswalk, for $5/day on weekends. This is our recommendation. (2) There is metered parking on Elm Street and on every adjacent street downtown. (3) There is also a parking garage directly underneath Thanksgiving Tower for $8/hr or a max of $20/day. (4) There are a variety of other public parking lots throughout downtown Dallas at a variety of rates generally ranging $5-$15.
