The ASC Master Class is now coming to you!
Don’t miss this opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge from cinematography’s most prestigious and celebrated artists!
Continuing its mission to educate the next generation of filmmakers, the American Society of Cinematographers has expanded its one-of-a-kind Master Class program worldwide.
Throughout the year, the ASC International Master Class, in partnership with ARRI, will travel internationally to offer advanced cinematographers a unique opportunity to learn from the best during a three-day intensive.
The next ASC International Master Class sessions will take place in:
April 10-13 & April 16-19
These two three-day intensives will be conducted by the world’s top directors of photography. These classes are intended for the very advanced student or experienced cinematographer currently working in the motion picture business.
Classes will be taught by ASC members and include instruction on:
- Dramatic lighting & shooting
- Shooting High Dynamic Range (HDR)
- Shooting large format with ARRI Alexa 65
- Lighting and shooting automobiles and commercial products
- Blending live action with computer-generated imagery (CGI)
- Shooting visual effects with greenscreen compositing
- Color science
- Postproduction color grading
Confirmed ASC member instructors for the Beijing events are Karl-Walter Lindenlaub, Fred Elmes, Theo van de Sande, Steven Fierberg, Bill Bennett and Sam Nicholson — each of whom have participated in previous ASC Master Class sessions.
The ASC member instructors will be joined by colorist Florian Utsi Martin, who will discuss his role in crafting the image.
Each class also includes opening and closing dinner receptions with ASC members and ARRI representatives.
Space is limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
