Description
The discipline offered in Cinematography is structured around nine thematic courses that deal with technique, aesthetics, the history and the evolution of moving images, as far as direction of photography is concerned. We emphasize on the narrative possibilities that arise from the creative use of composition, lighting and camera movement. The cinematography courses are based on artistic classes with a workshop approach, dealing with shooting techniques through exercises that apply, a practical training experience on camera composition and movement as well as lighting. Lessons are structured and presented by directors of photography, Lecturer Panos Salapatas and Ass. Professor Dimitris Theodoropoulos. There are useful information and notes about the department and the courses both on the e-blackboard platform offered by AUTH and the instructors’ web sites: http://cinematographyaristotelio.blogspot.com/ http://theodoropoulos.info/component/weblinks/2.html & http://theodoropoulos.info/resources.html.
