Camera as Interface WorkshopTrain your eye to think like a camera in this intensive hands-on workshop for beginners to pros with award winning filmmaker Jim de Seve.

Explore the discipline of seeing through exercises geared to expand your observational and critical visual skills. Improve your visual/creative acuity through observational shooting techniques, light and movement walks, and exercises in framing, perspective, color and tone.

As Sergei Eisenstein said, “The filmmaker is simultaneously an architect, poet, painter, and composer…. tracing out new paths and able to win the sympathy of the spectator.” Bridging the gap between your eye and the camera will serve you well as you endeavor to translate what you see into photography and other visual media.

Jim de Seve has won eleven festival awards for his theatrically released film, Tying the Knot. His work has screened in over twenty-five countries and across the United States. The film received accolades from outlets including Variety, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, and The Christian Science Monitor. De Seve has taught photography and filmmaking at Film and Video Arts in New York City, and is currently on the faculty at Union College. His dynamic teaching style is renowned.
