Hollywood Director and Cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak will run a 1 day workshop at the Fastnet Film Festival on Saturday 25th of May.

Andrzej Bartkowiak Director of Photography on three films to receive Academy Award nominations for Best Picture, ‘The Verdict’, ‘Terms of Endearment’ (which won 5 Oscar Awards), and ‘Prizzi’s Honor’ will run a one day cinematography workshop at the Festival in Schull in May.

The 1 day workshop will run Saturday 25th May at the Sailing Centre in Schull. Participants will be asked to submit a story, severals of which will be considered during the morning session with a view to shooting one in the afternoon. The story will be told through images. All the equipment will be supplied. Places are limited to 25 so booking is essential. A nominal fee of €25 will apply and stories should be submitted in advance. Workshop Booked out.

Bartkowiak made his directorial debut with ‘Romeo Must Die’ a martial-arts action film starring Jet Li, which was a huge hit at the box-office and a year later he made the action-comedy film ‘Exit Wounds’ starring Steven Seagal. He provided the very natural look of James L Brooks’ glossy Oscar-winning Best Picture in “Terms of Endearment” and crafted the comic noir look for John Huston’s “Prizzi’s Honor” and the crisp, clean visuals for Ivan Reitman’s “Twins”.

2010 saw Andrzej’s return as Director of Photography on the thriller ‘Trespass’, directed by Joel Schumacher, starring Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage as a married couple taken hostage by extortionists.

“We are honoured and delighted to welcome Andrezj to Schull for our 5thAnniversary. Many thanks to the Polish Ambassador Marcin Nawrot for creating this opportunity. For anyone involved in film this will be an experience not to be missed.” Said Director of the Festival Maurice Seezer.
