Hey,
 
So as cinematographers we all make certain choices related to the film based on our understanding of the script.
Our lighting, camera movement,composition and much much more is based on how we interpret the script.
As I am about to start shooting a small narrative short I would like to know how you prepare for a script and what are the cues you look for that motivate your choices in regard to framing,color,camera movement, lighting etc.
If there is any good online material regarding this please do share it with me.
Just in case anyone wants to take this further I can go ahead and attach the screenplay so we can have a small discussion.
 
 
Thank You.

You need to use your full real name, it's one of forum rules. You should contact Tim Tyler, the site owner,  to make the change, since you can no lomger do it yourself.
