Good school for Cinematography?
on Aug 31, 2006 at 2:01:00 am

Currently I am studying broadcasting as an undergrad in
PA... I'm considering going on to get an MFA in film...

So I am wondering if anybody can give me any suggestion for
a good school where I could concentrate on learning the craft
of cinematography...

I was considering one of the rockport maine workshops to help
get me up to par and then maybe a two year film degree...

thanks any help would be really appreciated

This has been brought up before...do a search maybe it's still around. Rockport could be good with a good instructor, check out AFI in LA and maybe USC. If your into still photography as well, do a lot of shooting and lighting of subjects. see what you like and don't like. experimentation and constant shooting is key.

Okay... "good instructor" is somewhat vague...
can you recommend anyone?

Thanks, but I believe that I already read the post you were referring to...

but i didn't find it that helpful... no offense... but i wasn't asking whether I should go to film school or work as a slave for an established filmmaker (i'm referring to the other post)unfortunately I don't know cinematographers that are in the market for coffee fetcher... However if you happen to know of anyone that is please let me know asap... I don't even need to be fed because I am looking to lose all the weight I gained from editing a promotional video over the summmer...
Maybe if titled my post buy "one get one free on Red Cameras" I would have gotten more responses

I know a good shooter who thought his time at AFI was worthwhile.
