How do you convey powerful stories without words? How do you use the camera to maximise impact? We have invited three cinematographers to discuss their approach to the craft by choosing a favourite scene from their own work, breaking it down and exploring how they approached it both technically and creatively. They will also talk about the collaborative process of working with Directors.
Our guest Cinematographers are: Emma Dalesman, Magnus Dennison and Kyle Heslop.
Emma Dalesman is a freelance DOP and graduate of the Cinematography MA at the National Film and Television School. Shooting a range of projects encompassing fiction, documentary, commercials and animation, her work has been nominated for both the Kodak and Fujifilm Cinematography awards and shown in competition at international film festivals.
Magnus Dennison is a producer and cinematographer who has worked across docs, dramas and commercials for major broadcasters including BBC, ITV and Channel 4.
Kyle Heslop’s work has received nominations and jury mentions in festivals across the world. His first feature film UDHAU (Runaway), which was shot entirely on location in Bangladesh, won the Best Cinematography award at the Action on Film festival in California. Kyle has recently been working with two time BAFTA-nominated writer and director Yousaf Ali Khan on the feature film GIANTLAND, starring Hayley Squires (“I, DANIEL BLAKE.) At present he is in talks to be 2nd unit DOP on a major Netflix drama, being shot in the UK and Norway.
This event is delivered as part of the Artist Filmmakers Network North East programme.
