Arri crime movies

Registration to the group is closed.

Paweł Dyllus will lead Arri Crime Movies Group at Film Spring Open 2020. Classes will take place online at Google Meet platform. Practical work will take place thanks to our befriended rentals which will share film equipment to film crews accepted by the group tutor in Warsa, Cracow and more.

Last year I had the pleasure to attend Film Spring Open for the first time. Drawing on that experience, I would like the participants to come to the workshop with an idea for a film in mind. We will discuss together the best ideas. Then, we will vote and select one or two projects that we would like to work on as a group. My ambition is to have edited, sounded, coloured, ready-to-show films at the end of FSO. During the years of my professional carrier I have learned a lot about myself and people around me. My approach to work has changed under the influence of various factors. Today, whenever it is possible, I try to put interpersonal relations first at work. I believe that by getting to know one another, listening to each other, devoid of creative fear, we can make something honest and real. I learned a lot from you during the last Film Spring Open and I hope this year it will also be the case. To all directors, cinematographers, sound engineers, editors, production managers, composers – JOIN ME! Let’s create our own history, let’s film, let’s show. – says Paweł Dyllus.

Join Pawel Dyllus for a lecture titled: “HOW TO SHOOT AND LIVE: shaping the character, everyday creative and life choices we make during our creative work.”
“First character, then ability” – is a quote from a book by a brilliant japanese violin master Shinichi Suzuki. Those words have been on my mind since I’ve read them for the first time.
I remember when I was working on my feature debut, I didn’t know much about the importance of a team that surrounds you and how to manage it well, how to respect the opinion of those who had something to say. How to separate what is important from what is not. I also didn’t realize how important it is to take breaks and rest, and how to use your off time properly.
Because of that, I would like to share with you how my approach to the work of the cinematographer has changed since then, using my experience as an example.
