The workshop “The Art of Analysis” covers the basics of photographic arts through filmmaking, explaining key composition techniques like the rule of thirds, leading lines, and framing. It delves into filmmaking fundamentals, discussing storytelling, shot types, aspect ratio, and camera movements, as well as the essentials of storyboarding. This workshop also explores elements of cinematography, including lighting, color theory, and design, and introduces mise-en-scène techniques such as set design, costume, and actor positioning (aka, blocking). The course will examine iconic film scenes and analyze their significance under the context of visual literacy.
