Learning outcomes of the course unit
This course aims to introduce 1st year Camera dept. students with the basic awareness and skills necessary for shooting a practical exercise.
Mode of study
Presentation, contact instruction, practical demonstrations.
Prerequisites and co-requisites
Knowledge of calculations with decimal logarithms, goninometric functions, solving equations with two variables.
This course introduces students to to film recording technology, exponometric and senzometric practice.
Instruction is a combination of presenation with image presentation and completion of practice tasks. An inseparable part is the practical TCH-FOT.
1/ Exponometrics practice
Exponometric tools and devices
Working with exposimetrics, luxmetrics and brightness
Methods of establishing the correct exposure of the film raw material
Brightness analysis of the recorded scene; important sensitometric parameters of the film raw material
Practical reproductivity of the recording in negative - positive technology
2/ Shooting exposure attempts of the film material
Prepare, shooting and evaluation of the exposue attempt
Senzitometric attempts - production and evaluation
Construction of senzitometric gradient of the copy (negative-positiv technology)
3/ Film camera
Construction of film cameras, recording lenses
Introduction to the operation of selected types
4/ Film camera accessories
Tripods, equipment for movement, matte box, special optical equipment, other drives
5/ recording filters
Overview, characteristics, practical use
6/ Different manner of camera recording
Recording in standard frequencies - static shots, panorama, camera movement.
Recording with increased or decreased frequency
Recording with sound, sychronic, asynchronic, playback.
Simple camera tricks
7/ Assignment and analysis of the TCH-FOT exercise
Brightness analysis of the assigned scene type; issues of scene brightness reproduction in film screening; factors influencing radiant perception of an audience in a cinema hall.
