Visual Storytelling: Collaborating with Your DP (Jan. 2020)
Registration is now closed for this session.
Jeremiah Zagar

The application period for the course has ended. Watch the Sundance Co//ab newsletter for updates on future course offerings.

One of the most important relationships in a film is between the Director and DP. Learn how to collaborate with a DP to bring your script to life with a visual language for your film. To create an effective story, the Director and DP need to develop a shared language. In this four-week course, a notable Director from the Sundance network will guide you through that creative process. Using examples from their films, they will talk about a process that begins during pre-production with script breakdowns, storyboards and the development of the “look” of the film and continues through production.

The course will be held live in our virtual classroom. All sessions are recorded for registered participants who are unable to attend live.
