  1. Hey guys. Currently writing my dissertation for my university degree. I'm writing on the topic of colour in film and to what extent it evokes emotions in the audience. I have discussed a lot to do with both cinematography and production design, mainly the importance of the collaboration between the two roles. A large majority of my essay is currently discussing modern black and white cinema too. I have a few questions relating to my main question. Would be highly appreciate if I could get some answers/opinions on the topic from some of the DOPs in the group. Would love to hear examples of your actual work as well. Thanks in advance. Main question: To what extent does the use of colour in film evoke specific emotions in the audience? Sub Questions: What would be your main reason for choosing to shoot a film in black and white? In what ways would you work differently in creating specific emotions, how do these differ to shooting for colour? How did you direct the audience to a certain part of the frame without the use of colour? In regards to the colour films you have shot, did you work with any kind of colour harmonies in mind when shooting the films? How closely do you work with the production designer in creating a specific feeling/mood throughout a production? If there is anything else you would like to add please do include it in your answer. Thanks!
  2. I'm from London, 16 years old and female. Ever since I first watched Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho', I knew I wanted to be a director. I became obsessed, I watch all of his films around four times each and went through each one, studying the use of his particularly dramatic and iconic instrumental music and the use of his camera angles. I want to be able to write my own screenplays and put a team together to collaborate and put it to life. I've already started writing a few, one of which was a adaption of the novel 'Of Mice and Men', which was used for a stage production. I'm also writing with a friend of mine, a crime avant-garde inspired story, with which we are going to film. However, I know I need direction. I understand that this business is extremely bitterly hard to get into and to make a living, but this is all I want to do with my life. I wanted to ask a few questions: 1.) Is it hard for a female to get noticed in the film industry? I don't mind working in a mostly male dominated industry, I just know that there aren't as many women who film, compared to men. 2.) Camera recommendations and lenses too. I need to find a camera suitable of shooting raw material. 3.) I noticed that a lot of film directors never went to university, they went straight in by doing apprenticeship type work. I would never be able to do that, so I know I need to go to university. What would be a good choice of one in London? 4.) Lighting equipment. I would like to know what types you use. Thank you for reading.
