Education Conference is ready

The number of papers submitted for the Cinematography in Progress conference has surpassed the most sceptical expectations of the organization. The program planned at first was substantially enriched by the proposition abstracts presented and by the quality of them. The aim of the conference is to find a common ground for cinematography teachers in the digital age. The methodology applied is still in progress in various schools and teachers are still trying to establish a method that can work as well or better than the previous system based on celluloid. Maybe the best of both worlds is the ideal goal to be reached to prepare cinematography students to face the constant and ongoing changes of the future.
