Masterclass with the award-winning cinematographer Ulf Brantås - Kulturakademin
Director of photography known for Marcella, The Wife, Lilja 4-ever, Fucking Åmål (among others)
In collaboration with FSF, Gothenburg Studios Development, Film i Väst, Göteborg Film Festival with technical support from RedRental
Multi-award winning cinematographer Ulf Brantås, FSF, is one of the most sought-after, experienced and versatile Swedish Directors of Photography working today. Winner of both a European Film Award and a Guldbagge, and widely admired for his ability to adapt to numerous different visual styles, Brantås has enjoyed several long and fruitful collaborations with directors such as Lukas Moodysson, Björn Runge and Per-Olav Sørensen.
In his Masterclass Brantås will focus on effective strategies for using multiple cameras, his recipes for expanding your career onto the international arena and how to get the most out of your shooting locations, as well as many other topics regarding film production today.
You don't spend four decades behind a camera working with actors such as Glenn Close, Alexander Skarsgård and Eddie Izzard without formulating a certain philosophy over the years, and Brantås feels that ”if I am affected emotionally by what plays out in front of my camera on set, then I feel it's safe to assume the audience will very likely be affected in the same way."
