Female Cinematographers – three articles worth reading

On 14, Nov 2014 | In Cinematography Resources, News | By DavidPimm

Women in film is a topic that has become increasingly present in the media, which is a really good thing and long overdue. In a way it’s a shame that it is a thing that needs to be talked about at all, but it’s positive that it is happening regularly considering the state of affairs. The statistics are terrible, particularly for female cinematographers. As Indie Wire’s article that I link to below states,

‘Do cameras have an effect on how good your cinematography is in film?’

On 25, Feb 2014 | In Cinematography Resources, News | By DavidPimm

Cinematography resources: Zacuto Film Fellas DP webcasts

On 29, May 2012 | In Cinematography Resources, News | By DavidPimm

The internet is absolutely teeming with information about film making, cameras, cinematography, DSLRs, DSLRs, DSLRs, lighting, accessories. While a lot of the information is quite misleading, there are tons of brilliant, free resources in all shapes and sizes online. I find that many of the best articles, videos and podcasts are led by or involve authorities in the field of cinematography, film making or camera assisting. I thought it would be helpful to catalogue these for everyone to learn from. Predominantly Cinematography Resources, these may also dip into story or camera assisting, but will always be useful to anyone with an interest in camera. Read more…
