A group of high-end cinematographers, including triple Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro, colourists and DITs will take part in a live online seminar and roundtable on using HDR as a storytelling tool tonight, August 21st between 7pm and 8.30pm BST

It will be hosted on Mission’s Youtube channel here https://bit.ly/34cyPeb and on their Facebook here https://bit.ly/34cyPeb

Vittorio Storaro, ASC, AIC  is one of, if not the, most famous cinematographers in the world. Vittorio has won three Oscars for cinematography with an exceptional credit list including The Last Emperor and Apocalypse Now. He is contributing to this evening’s seminar and roundtable with an already stellar line-up exploring the theory and creative expression that HDR brings to filmmaking.

High Dynamic Range has introduced a powerful new tool that can enhance cinematic expression. The use of light and colour have a powerful impact on storytelling, particularly to convey emotion and mood. HDR offers a better canvas and larger palette through which to achieve this expression, but this needs to be planned for.

Who should attend? Cinematographers, colourists, directors and producers and all those involved in the craft of cinematic storytelling
