Cinematography Institute in Chennai

Father of Motion Picture Photography

“The art of cinematography is nothing but the art of painting with light”... but artistry apart, cinematography is also a highly technical field. Cinematography is a mixture of art and science. It is the cinematographer who becomes the ‘eye’ of the director, transforming his vision into unforgettable images.

Edward Muybridge was an English photographer who developed a miraculous process for capturing movement on film, laying the groundwork for the motion picture industry. His contribution spurred the works of other inventors, including Thomas Alva Edison.

Inspired by his contribution to art and photography, the institution took on the name Muybridge Film School.
