Eminent Director Shri. Mani Ratnam delivering his speech at Muybridge film school Inaugural ceremony
Director of Photography, Shri. P.C Sreeram speaks about Muybridge film institute Inaugural function.
“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.
Learning is made interesting and intensive at Muybridge Film School. Structure and syllabus at Muybridge, which has been carefully developed, makes even the most complex issues in cinematography understandable.
Capturing an image is a craft, while capturing the soul is an art.
The faculty at Muybridge is highly qualified. Our faculty has gained substantial teaching experience in the Film Institute tempered by work experience in the commercial film industry. Muybridge Film Institute brings these years of experience together and combines them with a tailor-made, intensive curriculum.
We at Muybridge will make learning an experience that will last a lifetime.
Telling a story on film is not just about recording the action. But it is also about how the images are captured. Film making began to flourish and became more sophisticated, the need to separate responsibilites was more apparent. So the role of cinematographer was created.
It should also be noted that the relationship between director and cinematographer can also greatly influence the look of the film.
In the Muybridge Film Institute Chennai, the knowledge base encompasses lenses, exposure, composition, continuity, editorial needs, lighting, the language of the camera, even the basic elements of story structure. The job is storytelling with the camera, and the more you know about the elements of that art the better you will be able to assist the director in accomplishing those goals.
