Thinking of making a film short for the upcoming WIFVNE/Harvard Sq. Script Writers Flicks4Chicks contest? Come learn about the art and craft of both camera work and lighting at our festival sponsor Talamas’s fantastic new space.
Camerawork and lighting are powerful tools in storytelling that change the audience’s mood and perception of a scene. In this event, Lisa Sene and Mike Duca will discuss how these elements can be used effectively in storytelling in production. Example scenes will be screened and deconstructed visually, revealing not only how those results were achieved, but also why those choices were made with the overall story in mind. Audience members will have an opportunity to set up and shoot a practical scene to apply what they learn right away.
Due to overwhelming response to the February 20th date, a second workshop has been added for Saturday March 12th – RSVP below!

Lisa Sene is a steadicam operator who yes, really will run around with that heavy camera strapped to her! Lisa has kept it steady on productions all over the country, and looks forward to the new challenges that come with every project. Her favorite part about being a steadicam op is being able to directly participate in the creative side of production. She holds a BA in Cinematography from Emerson College, and has a strong background in theatrical lighting, both of which contribute to her understanding of visual storytelling.
