Masterclass with the Emmy Award winner Jakob Ihre
– the director of photography known for Chernobyl, Thelma, Louder Then Bombs (among others)
During this 3 hour masterclass we will go on a personal and artistic journey to dig deep into the the art of cinematography.
”I want to share some thoughts on what we are trying to tell when making a film; what is a certain lens meant to achieve – what is motivating the camera ́s language – does the light need to be dictated by the script, how bright should the artificial sun be – can we just improvise instead of making an intricate plan – do we have to be guided by the concept behind the director ́s vision. Should we capture the sunset or just the forgotten remains of it ? Should a cinematographer take a longer break between each project and quarantine themselves in order to not pollute the next project with habits and ideas from the previous one ?
Let ́s try to answer some of these thoughts while we discuss technical and emotional challenges that occurs on every project. To show moments and scenes in films that I have been part of and talk about the idea behind them and how they were executed and why.”
