with Magdalena Hutter
In this workshop we’ll take a look at documentary cinematography and its role in capturing interviews. What are some responsible strategies for filming material that will be edited, both when working with video interviews and with audio only? What are the basics of setting up a shot for an interview, considering composition, lighting, and surroundings? What are sight lines and why do they matter?
We’ll analyze some short examples from my own documentary and research-creation practice, discuss approaches to and questions about filming interviews, and try out composing a shot sequence for an interview by using our phones.
Magdalena Hutter is a documentary filmmaker, cinematographer, and photographer. As a HUMA PhD candidate she uses documentary film and movement for research-creation in her project on Fat ScreenDance.
