High Dynamic Range has introduced a powerful new tool that can enhance cinematic expression. HDR is too often thought of in terms of increased luminance but a more accurate and vivid colour rendition is equally as relevant.

The use of light and colour have a powerful impact on storytelling, particularly to convey emotion and mood. HDR offers a larger palette through which to achieve this expression, but of course this needs to be planned for from pre-production, at the point of capture and in the grade ahead of mastering.

Although technical in parts this seminar is more about theory and creative expression. The seminar and later roundtable discussion are for leading production and post creative operators to share their approaches and personal experiences and to pass on their accumulated knowledge.

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

This seminar has been organised by Mission and Wildcat and is supported by Televisual and Sim
