The major part of storytelling is image composition. The framing, the lights, shades, moods, shapes and camera movement. And that’s why it’s called moving pictures.
As we continuously advocate for the creation of more African stories, we must deliberately include the participation of women in capturing them. In an attempt, we have now open an application call for women/girls who want to learn the art of image composition. To be a camera woman.

By the end of this workshop you will be able to demonstrate technical control over the basic elements of photography, including exposure, lighting and framing. You’ll develop an understanding in capturing moments and the collaboration between the cinematographer and the director. During and after the workshop you will be able to succesfully complete a variety of film projects and managing each project during the pre-production, production and post-production phases.
