What is Cinematography? It's is the art of visual storytelling, of using different types of shots to build a compelling world inside your movie. Anyone can set a camera on a tripod and hit record, but the artistry of cinematography comes in controlling what the viewer sees (or doesn't see) and how the image is presented. Film is a visual medium, and the best-shot films are ones where one can tell what's going on without hearing any of the dialogue.

The latest free report from Videomaker is written by an independent video director from Los Angeles. Tim Heiderich has written and directed Internet video series like “Assignment: Unexplained” and “Rescue 411.”

With some basic knowledge of composition and scene construction, a director can plan scenes using this visual language. Learn how different shots work together to form a clear, cohesive narrative and how to compose each shot in a way that is visually pleasing for the viewer. Understanding these simple rules will help make your films more thrilling and engaging.
