About the Event

Having  a lot of money to make your film is always nice but technique trumps  expensive gear any day. If you have the best camera in the world but you  don’t know how to use it in a way that you get the most from it your  film will suffer. Maybe you have a character whose life is  falling apart and you need to reveal how they feel in a single moment.  How can you do that with lights, camera movement, and camera angles and  no dialogue? How can you show the audience what is going on inside one  of your character’s mind, be it anger, frustration, sorrow, or joy? In  this class, Landi Maduro will show you how to use camera angles and  blocking to strategically reveal story elements and information about  your characters. She will give tips on how to use lighting to affirm or  throw off your audience on who your protagonist is in your story. She  will give advice on how to communicate your vision to your  cinematographer and crew to achieve your film goals. Landi is a  photographer, producer, writer, director, and CEO of the production  company Bluechild Entertainment. She has produced, written, and directed  various small business commercials, music videos, online courses,  shorts, and virtual live broadcasts. Her most fulfilling project to date  is, The Silent Killer: Prostate Cancer In The African American  Community. With this documentary, she challenged herself as a writer,  producer, and director and began touring and lecturing nationwide  advocating prostate cancer awareness. As the proud leader of WOCF, Landi  believes in supporting and uplifting female filmmakers as they pursue  careers in film and television.
