On November 15th the International Cinematographers Guild national president, Steven Poster, ASC, will hold a masterclass in New York City on the cinematography of one the best of his very own works: Donnie Darko.
The cult classic has long been hailed for its visual elegance, which can be attributed to cinematographer and ICG president Stephen Poster. After a screening f the film, he’ll cover not only the cinematography of the film, but also “an overview of his collaboration with director Richard Kelly” and his secrets on how to make it in the industry.
Beyond Donnie Darko, the award winning Poster’s talents can be seen in many projects over the years, such as Rocky V, Madonna’s Like A Prayer music video, Roswell, Color of Justice and Courage, and much much more. This is definitely an amazing opportunity for those looking to learn from a master cinematographer.
Even better is the cost, at only $75 for non ICG members, and $50 for members. Even if you travel from out of NYC, that’s still an awesome price to be taught by the president of the ICG.
