Documentary Cinematography Master Class

Back to Programme

After graduating from the Lodz film school in 1970, Petrycki has been collaborating with Kieślowski ever since and their international award-winning works have included documentaries and drama films. In this Masterclass, Petrycki will share the techniques of cinematography and how to tell a powerful story through images. How to create meaning through composition, depth of field, color and movement of the camera. Apart from class lectures, participants will go on location and film in groups. Petrycki will share his analysis of the topics daily and engage the participants in discussions before practising with the camera. On the last day of the course, the participants will need to make a one-minute film and the participants of the two workshops will watch and discuss their works together. Furthermore to enhance the participants’ understanding of Petrycki’s cinematography style, the course includes tickets to three screenings of Petrycki’s films shown in the Festival.
