Masterclass in Cinematographer/Director Relations

The relationship between a director and a cinematographer (DOP) is one of the key creative forces in the process of making a film. For this online workshop, which took place online in 2020, WFT spoke with a working duo, Writer/Director Oonagh Kearney (Five Letters To The Stranger Who Will Dissect My Brain) and DOP Eleanor Bowman (The Girl with the Mechanical Maiden) about their creative process. Using their funded film as an example, this event shines an important light on the needs of a DOP when it comes to helping a director visualise the story and to underline the key stages of their collaboration.

This event was organised with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
