Monthly filmmmaking forum presented by Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts. May topic: Concept to Camera with Ryan Earl Parker.
The cinematographer is not only one of the key creative minds on a film, but also the craftsperson whose work is most directly impactful to that film’s visual experience. Join esteemed cinematographer Ryan Earl Parker (Sweet, Sweet Lonely Girl, Feral) as he guides you through his creative process, which is less focused on the camera and lighting tools as it is on how to communicate with a director, and, ultimately, connect with and execute their unique vision. Cinematography is much more than the type of camera you use or simply creating beautiful images; it’s about shooting in a way that is relevant to the film itself, as well as turning a director’s abstract ideas into a purposeful and visually engaging work.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m./panel discussion at 7 p.m. Free and open to the public. Complimentary beverages will be available.
