Roger Chapman: Camera Masterclass

Saturday 24th November, 2012

Roger Chapman is one of the UK's leading documentary cinematographers, widely recognised for his strength as a classic observational cameraman, but also for his versatility in working across genre, including commercials and television dramas. He has worked on more than forty documentaries mostly for the BBC and Channel 4 and has received numerous awards including the RTS Documentary Cameraman Award for The Last Peasants (2003) and a Cameraman's Guild Award for Geldof in Africa (2005). Directors he has worked with include Angus MacQueen on the multi-award-winning Hostage in the Jungle (2010), Brian Hill (Climate of Change, 2010), Ken Loach (The Flickering Flame, 1998) and Leslie Woodhead (How the Beatles Rocked the Kremlin, 2009). Roger has also worked with Kevin Macdonald on commercials and in 2011 he shot Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing's first feature film, Self Made.


Roger's masterclass was part of a day of three in-depth masterclasses with leading documentary cinematographers, discussing their work, experience, approach and processes.
