Ahmad Al Morsy Conducts an Advanced Cinematography Workshop Organized by Cairo Media School


DOP Ahmad Al Morsy takes part in an advanced cinematography workshop about the basics of cinematography, the relationship between the DOP and the other technical elements in film or TV series. Organized by CBC's Cairo Media School, the workshop kicked off last Wednesday.

The workshop is held under the sponsorship of Advanced Media Trading LLC that provides RED cameras to the workshop, in collaboration with RED Digital Cinema. This workshop marks the second collaboration between Al Morsy and the companies since the last workshop held in November, 2017. Through the workshop, Al Morsy reviews the different types of cameras, lighting and lenses, and the best way to cooperate with directors, read the script with a DOP's eye, and how to be a qualified DOP for shooting a film.

Most recently, Al Morsy was a jury member of the Arab Cinema Horizons Competition held within the 39th Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF) and the Made In Egypt competition at the Shnit Worldwide Short film festival. Moreover, he won the Cinematography Award as part of the Egyptian Films Poll Awards at the 33rd Alexandria International Film Festival for Mediterranean Countries for his latest film The Originals (Al Aslyeen) by director Marwan Hamed.

For more than 20 years working as a DOP in the film industry, Ahmad Al Morsy presented more than 50 films and won seven awards for four of his films. He shot more than 1000 TV commercials. ARRI, the world's largest manufacturer and distributor of motion picture cameras, digital intermediate systems and lighting equipment, has picked some of Al Morsy's works in a video of its production, where best shots taken by the ALEXA camera are shown. Al Morsy was featured in the video through some scenes from his film The Originals (Al Aslyeen), Angham's music video and two TV commercials. This is the third year in a row for Al Morsy to be featured in a video of ARRI's best camera users.
