I was wondering if one has to have huge experience or credits to be able to join to these master classes. I studied filmmaking, directing at the School of Visual arts. My main goal is to make my own film. That was the only reason I came to USA and go to that school. I have in depth knowledge on every aspect of cinematography but I lack experience.
Hi Osman. The short answer is no, you don't need to have a HUGE amount of experience, but it's not geared for beginners either. The ASC Masterclass is advertised as being for people with "intermediate" or "advanced" knowledge of cinematography. I consider myself to be at the lower eschelons of the intermediate level.
I also began my filmmaking ventures in college as a writer/director who enjoyed shooting. I only recently developed a true interest in cinematography. Even though it says "Cinematographer" under my name on this forum, I've always felt the most appropriate title for myself has been "filmmaker."
If you apply, you will have to send a resume. And based on your experience, you should have no problem getting in.
