However, not everything has been turned on its head. The tools may have changed but the fundamentals of cinematography remain the same. Cinematographer Chris Benson will lead a KDHX Master Filmmaking Class on the state of cinematography today.
 
Benson will demonstrate use of the RED camera.
 
WHEN: Saturday May 19, 11am-3pm
WHERE: Regional Arts Commission, RAC
6128 Delmar Blvd.
Saint Louis, MO 63112
