About the Event

It can be overwhelming to choose the right camera to make your film look  cinematic as an indie filmmaker. Maybe you have shot a few shorts with  your iPhone or DSLR and you want to up-level with your next film but you  are not sure where to start. Do rent a super expensive Arri Alexa or  can you get a comparable look with a less expensive camera and the right  lens. Should you try to rent an anamorphic lens or are they out of your  league. Maybe all of this sounds foreign to you and you just want to  have a better understanding of how to shoot a film and make it look  good, period!!! If you are a director it is important for you to  understand camera and lens so you can relay to your cinematographer your  cinematic vision. In this in-person/virtual class, cinematographer and  director, Irwin “Moon” Miller is going to break down for us camera and  lenses by demonstrating techniques with some of the cameras and lenses  he likes to shoot with. This is a great class for new cinematographers  and directors. Irwin is a passionate and playful creative genius  whose academic background and tech-savvy mind continue to make an impact  among the prominent league of directors for film and television. As one  of Hollywood’s “Next Generation Filmmakers”, Miller’s directing career  started in college with multiple short films and Live TV. Directing Live  Bowl Games for Direct TV was only the beginning. From live broadcasts  for the Emmys to television promo and concert work for clients like  Paramount, HBO, NBC, not to mention, the multiple short films with  nominations in the festival circuit, Miller keeps his Moonlight Film  Production Company producing content for high-end clients delivering  Industry-leading content that rivals only the best. His biggest  director credits are mainly live television.
