How to shoot black and white film on a colour digital camera

with cinematographer Peter Bencsik

Cinematographer Peter Bencsík (ASK) will be the guest of the Masterclass organised by the Association of Slovak Cinematographers (ASK) at the Cinematik festival. His masterclass will focus on lighting and especially on how to make darkness for a black and white film like Piargy. There will also be previews of the freshly completed film for the festival visitors. Peter Bencsík will discuss them in detail in an interview with the president of the association, cinematographer Lukáš Teren (ASK). The masterclass will also offer the opportunity to try unusual grip shots with a camera ride.

“The masterclass will cover black and white LUTs, lighting, the advantages and disadvantages of shooting black and white historical film and we will also talk about artistic contrast and also how to light a night black and white shot,” Peter Bencsík says about his lecture. His latest film Piargy (dir. Ivo Trajkov, 2022) is premiering at the Cinematik festival. Most recently, he collaborated with director Michal Vajdička on the TV series On a Ona (2022), with director Ján Novák on two series, Nemocnica and Hranica, and did the camera work on Perfect Strangers (dir. Zuzana Marianková, 2022).

The Association of Slovak Cinematographers organises annual masterclasses on different attractive topics. In 2021, Martin Štrba (ASK), Miro Remo (ASK), Martin Žiaran (ASK) were their guests, and an interesting discussion was also led by Martin Chlpík (ASK) and Maroš Žilinčan (ASK).
