How do you get the chance to learn, in person, from a master cinematographer? 
Simple. Join the Peter James ACS ASC 2 Day Masterclass March 18th and 19th in Melbourne, presented by Silver Victorian ACS sponsor ShotClass. See below for details on how to apply.
A rare opportunity! Spend two full days with master cinematographer, Peter James ACS ASC as he takes you through setting up and shooting a variety of scenes. The masterclass will take place both Interior and Exterior at practical locations and will include day and night interiors and a night exterior.
Exactly how does a master of cinematography film a scene? Peter’s creative mind will see opportunity that drives those choices. That is the gift of the cinematographer’s eye. You will be a part of the decision-making process and learn how to consider all options – and then choose one. With him you will explore composition and lighting. Two simple words for a million ideas.
Peter James ACS ASC is internationally renowned for his beautiful cinematography and stills photography. He is an AFI/AACTA Award Winner and an inductee into the ACS Hall of Fame. Peter is one of Australia’s pre-eminent cinematographers with an extensive career shooting Feature Films both for the USA and Australia, as well as high-end, award-winning commercials for cinema and television.
His images are exquisite. His portraiture composition and lighting unmatched. Peter is a true master of his craft, a passionate educator and sharer of his vast knowledge. Having the opportunity to learn from legends like Peter should be grasped with both hands.
