[NEW] Hands on Cinematography Part 2 Masterclass

  1. Peter Sagnia

    Just finished the Cinematography Part 2 Masterclass. Excellent class. Hands on experience. Zoran allowed the students to experiment and try different lighting techniques. I learned a lot. Nothing beats being in an environment with a professional tutor. Thanks Zoran

  2. Vanda Ladeira

    An amazing two day Masterclass on cinematography. Zoran huge enthusiasm to share his experience and creative approaches to storytelling, made it a five stars course. The perfect balance of theory and practical exercises, with accessible delivery, makes this course very valuable not only for cinematographers, but also for producers and directors. Many thanks Zoran!

  3. Martin Kentish

    I really enjoyed the masterclass! Was a great hands on experience too. I liked having the opportunity to light many different scenes and to talk through some of the famous scenes on film. Thank you Zoran!

    I would recommend this class to any aspiring filmmaker.

    Successful collaboration between Director and Cinematographer in essence lies in mutual agreement of the visual style and creative approach to the story. Understanding the science behind the craft, the tools and techniques available to the Cinematographer and how they choose to apply these elements is key to this successful collaboration.

    During his two day Masterclass, Zoran shares his experience, enthusiasm, and passion for the craft through a balanced mix of theory, examples of his own work and hands on practical exercises, where students are allowed to experiment with different techniques in lighting and lens craft, learning how to bring scenes to life.

    If I were to sum up in one word, “Inspirational”.

    Many thanks to Zoran and to Raindance

    Once again feeling extremely inspired by Zoran’s Masterclass!!

    We had a chance to create inspired scenes from chosen movies and had a hands on experience working with setting up lights, cameras and all necessary equipment.

    It is a great way to practice creative thinking to any set problems we can encounter and how to find solutions and keep the team spirits high.

    Zoran’s knowledge, experience and passion is absolutely contagious and I could not recommend more to go and check it for yourself! Huge value in a short period of time. Just fantastic! Thank you again Zoran for sharing your enthusiasm and joy of creation with us. And thank you Raindance for making it all happen!
