Very simply the invention of the movie camera in the late 19th century started the miracle called Cinema.  It is the Cinematographers who become the "eye" of the Director, transposing his/her vision into unforgettable images that leave an indelible impression on our minds to be able to perform in a range of environments, be it the studio floor, the exterior space or a combination of interior and exterior lighting conditions. The students will also be trained to work as part of a collaborative team and equip them to be able to communicate with the Director and understand his or her requirements fully.
The students doing the Cinematography Course are not only given hands-on practical training in film and digital cameras along with extensive lens and lighting practicals, but are also given a rigorous input in the aesthetics of image making.
