Overview

During the filmmaking process the most important partner of the director is the cinematographer. He has a significant role in transferring a film idea into reality successfully in an environment where technology develops day by day. The cinematographer is the person who creates a coherent visual world using his/her own talent within the framework of the opportunities provided by the script.

In our University at the cameraman specialization the development of the artistic sense is equally important as gaining the proper knowledge of the technology. In order to be able of creating a film at a high level, not only stable technical knowledge and facing new challenges is needed but also a great dedication to filmmaking. Our University emphasis on introducing all relevant elements of the filmmaking, like editing, scriptwriting and directing in order to make our students capable of working in a team later.

Origo Film Studio provides an excellent professional background for the filmmaking training of the university.

“I chose this major primarily for its practice-oriented teaching and it has proved to be right, I have had inspiring, professional and active teachers. In classes we learn a lot from and motivate each other so that we have an even stronger material for the next task, this extra driving force could not be replaced with anything else.” Máté Papp, graduate
