/ noun
The art of making motion pictures.

A film is not only made by the actors or its director. The essential part for creating a cinematic masterpiece is the work of the Cinematographer / or Director of Photography. He makes the bridge between what is the vision of the director and how this can be accomplished by using a camera. Cinematographers help interpret the story for the director, and we bring a unique set of skills that are not only about technology but about visual imaging, visual storytelling. With the current concentration on new digital tools, some misunderstanding about it has evolved; some people think it works well at low light, then make the assumption that we don't need to light, and that's a misinterpretation of what the technology brings.
