Overview

During the filmmaking process the most important partner of the director is the cinematographer. He has a significant role in transferring a film idea into reality successfully in an environment where technology develops day by day. The cinematographer is the person who creates a coherent visual world using his/her own talent within the framework of the opportunities provided by the script. In our University at the cameraman specialization the development of the artistic sense is equally important as gaining the proper knowledge of the technology.

In order to be able of creating a film at a high level, not only stable technical knowledge and facing new challenges is needed but also a great dedication to filmmaking.
