The power of knowledge and intuition for cinematography
Invited by Cinematography World, the ITC is pleased to present this seminar in this important European event. We would like to personally thank Ron Prince (Editor-in-chief), Claire Saunders (Advertizing Manager/Organizer), Alan Lowne (Special Consultant) for this invitation and their great contribution to travel and accommodation. Thanks also to John Daly, Cinematographer, BSC, who is responsible for the technical set-up.
Whether it’s pre-production meetings, dealing with VFX or colour grading, the role of the cinematographer still raises serious questions. Also, the digital age has given rise to fantastic tools and artistic possibilities, but there’s still confusion about numbers, such as pixel counts, and a common language to define the tools/processes and artistic intentions. Even preserving films is not so simple in this new world either. Never mind the design of new digital sensors.
The session will be led on stage by ITC co-chairs, Aleksej Berkovic RGC and Philippe Ros AFC, with, joining by Zoom, cinematographers Joe Dunton BSC MBE, Juan Antonio Fernandez AEC, Stefan Grandinetti BVK, Kommer Kleijn SBC, Roberto Schaefer ASC, AIC, David Stump ASC – Motion Imaging Technology Council, ITC co-chair and colour scientist Charles Poynton will also join, via Zoom.
Together, the ITC will present its latest achievements and projects – including the photon path workflow diagram, approved by many manufacturers; the glossary of terms that is helping to unify manufacturers and camera/lighting technicians; future camera design; plus a discussion about the power of knowledge and intuition in all creative aspects of cinematography.
Daniel Siragusano, image engineer at FilmLight, will also take part, and will present the centerpiece of this seminar: the Photon Path diagram, which he designed for the ITC and the production/post-production community worldwide.
