"Applying Film Techniques to Writing" with Steven Dunn
Saturday, February 6, 2021
10 a.m. – 12 p.m. $35
Film uses space and lighting to evoke certain emotions. We will look at ways to make sentences and paragraphs function like how cameras zoom, pan, tilt, etc. We’ll consider what is in the visual frame — the composition of a scene. We’ll discuss high-key and low-key lighting and what effects those produce.
We’ll also view a short video that summarizes camera angles, as well as read and examine passages with a filmic quality.
Think of some of your favorite films and we’ll also discuss some of the techniques and try to transfer them to writing. At the Center.
