A bit of a guilty pleasure. Motion is something I’m obsessed with – but only when it ‘serves the story’. That’s CRITICAL.
Kensington, MD (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
Vincent Laforet, DGA and ICG Director, is launching his nationwide Directing Motion Tour catering to aspiring filmmakers. The full-day course will be comprised of a six-theme daytime workshop, followed by an evening applied theory seminar.
The Spring and Summer Directing Motion Tour will begin in May, end in July, and hit 32 major cities in just nine weeks.
Laforet will offer his expertise to filmmakers of various levels on how to effectively execute their visions and enable filmmakers to transmit a visual language that will elicit an emotional connection and response from audience members. Not only can the techniques be applied to any project such as short films and documentaries but the principles taught by Laforet will provide unique, ground-breaking, and competitive insight that will not only be taught in theory but will engage students with live demonstrations using some of the most advanced cinema technology.
Laforet believes “that motion is critical but only when it serves the story.” His extensive study and knowledge of camera motion is imperative to those who want to enhance their filmmaking skills.
Laforet is known for his avant-garde approach to filmmaking and storytelling. Reverie, a Laforet directed short film, was the first to be shot with the Canon 5D Mark II. Later, he was chosen as one of the first filmmakers to shoot with the Canon C300. Laforet has been a cinematographer and director for clients such as Sony, Adobe, Pepsi, Nike, and more. Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Time, and Life Magazine are a few of the publications that have commissioned Laforet’s work. In 2010, he was a three-time winner of the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. Laforet is considered a pioneer in the field of HD-capable DSLR cameras and is renowned for his innovative tilt shift and aerial photography.
