Finally started to process the thoughts better for the talk I am giving in Portugal this coming February. It seems like I am leaning towards a balance of three main themes: life, art, tech. And how in my world, it's all one and the same. This will be for a week long conference at Instituto Superior Tecnico, as part of their Computer Science week. They invited me a few months ago to come give a one hour talk and I gladly accepted it. I won't go into many details now, but will definitely touch on what strikes me as visual storytelling, what drives me when I look at a film, or work on a film, what I've learned throughout the years on how to guide the viewer's eye, how to compose an image to show an emotion, how color, and light, and shadows all come into play to create a mood, convey a feeling, capture an audience.
Should be really interesting. I am passionate about cinematography, photography and everything related to it, so hopefully this will be inspiring and thoughtful to everyone watching. Stay tuned for more details.
