Camera Studio

The World Seen Through Your Eyes

Knowing the mechanics of cinematography and postproduction, and applying technical precision are essential skills for bringing one‘s creative vision to the screen. The Camera Studio brings 20 Talent DoPs together to explore the thematic focus “Sculpting space and narrative with light”, as well as “Color correction on set and in the grading suite.” Lighting setups will be built in the studio and tested with the latest digital cameras, and the results will be graded and color-corrected using the latest state-of-the-art post-production tools and digital workflows. The Camera Studio is made possible through the support and cooperation the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (DFFB).
