Sometimes a single course is not enough. That is why we invite you to sign up for a package of cinematography courses, which includes classes with masters of the filmcamera: Paweł Dyllus, Paweł Grabarek and Sławomir Idziak.
Online education has its advantages and disadvantages. If we know what we want to learn, the Google search engine will offer us dozens of courses (better or worse) on a given topic. There is a lack of comprehensive classes on entire areas of audiovisual knowledge. Packages of audiovisual courses, which, through a composed program, guarantee comprehensive knowledge of a specific field and high quality through the selection of lecturers.
We invite excellent artists, working in international projects, who are successful and willing to dedicate their time to online meetings, courses and consultations on the Film Spring Open platform, which guarantees a world-class level of education and development in the dynamically changing technological and film market.

The whole event will be started by the award-winning cinematographer Paweł Dyllus, who in six sessions will introduce the participants to the profession of cinematographer, not only regarding the technique, but above all the creative role of the cinematographer.
Another course on cinematography technique, including post-production, will be conducted by the camera operator and cinematographer Paweł Grabarek.
In his course, Sławomir Idziak will talk about the visual dramaturgy with the example of Natalie Portman’s debut “A Tale of Love and Darkness”, for which he served as a DOP.
