This workshop will focus mainly on Visual Storytelling in filmmaking. How can we use composition, lighting camera movement and editing to enhance the story and improve the narrative. The tools of visual storytelling we will be exploring include the rule of thirds, leading lines, depth of field, lead space and contrast.
