Raindance Canada says
The Director and the Director of Photography (DOP) relationship is one of the most important collaborative relationships on any film set. Not only does a director need a DOP who has all the visual and technical skills to make a film “look great,” the smart director also wants a DOP who has the creative sensibility to understand the subtext of the story and the nuances of an actor’s performance. Like any relationship, every Director and DOP relationship is unique because each one will have their own professional experiences, artistic sensibilities and personal insecurities.

The main objective of this workshop is to demonstrate how a director can create a strong personal, technical and creative working relationship with their Director of Photography.

By the end of this 2-day workshop, you should be able to:
- Recognize the importance of the Director/DOP -Relationship
- Know what questions to ask when hiring a DOP
- Improve your skills when working with a DOP during prep
- Understand how to effectively communicate with a DOP on the set
