Back when desktop video editing was just a sparkle in every film editor's eye, Michael was busy creating Final Cut Pro. Learn Final Cut Pro from one of the original designers of this incredible piece of software!
Being a Cinematographer is a lot like being a great musician: You've got to practice lots of technical skills before you can apply them to your art. But once you own these skills, they become your filmmaking palette, enabling you to capture perfection when you're behind the lens! So, who better to learn them from than the renowned filmmaker/educator Michael Wohl?!
Michael starts this example-filled course with a series of tutorials that cover essential techniques. It is here that you learn camera basics. He shows focus techniques and explains the roles of the camera team. From there you learn about exposure, camera sensitivity, lenses and white balance.
The next collection of tutorials is where science and art crossfade. Michael explains framing, composition and camera movement. Here, you learn about focal length, depth of field, shooting angles, the rule of thirds, tracking, dolly shots and much, much more.
Throughout this course, Michael gives you lots of insider knowledge and shows you actual filmed examples based upon his extraordinary experience both as an award-winning filmmaker and an acclaimed educator. There is no better way to learn the art and craft of cinematography than in this Film Craft series by Michael Wohl!
A lot of information to learn from this class. I think I will retake it.

Michael Wohl does an excellent job in conveying his knowledge of cinematography, in a fun and inspiring course.
I get a kick out of the fact that after watching this course, I now know (and could even explain) the what the really cool term "zolly" means.
