Oscar-nominated cinematographer Seamus McGarvey will return to Irish shores this month to participate in two key events at the Darklight Festival.

On August 24, the Armagh-born cinematographer will discuss his work on this year’s record-breaking blockbuster ‘Avengers Assemble’, in a masterclass entitled ‘From Shooting to Computing’, in association with FÁS Screen Training Ireland.

McGarvey will be joined by Marvel’s VFX supervisor Jake Morrison (Iron Man 2, 300) when the pair will discuss how to ensure the best possible results for the post-production stage; shooting 2D for 3D; working on in-camera effects; filming using green screen; lighting techniques; and the best ways to prep for high end VFX.

The duo will also discuss the special relationship between the cinematographer and VFX supervisor, showing clips from ‘Avengers Assemble’ as they discuss their creative decisions, technical problems and solutions.

IFTA award-winning cinematographer PJ Dillon (The Runway) will host the masterclass, which will take place at The Factory from 3.30pm to 6.30pm.

McGarvey will then hold an In Conversation With… event the following day at The Factory at 1pm, where he will discuss his creative process as a cinematographer on some of the most successful films of the last 10 years, including ‘Atonement’, ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’ and his upcoming feature ‘Anna Karenina’.

‘Jump’ director Kieron J Walsh will facilitate this event which is being hosted in association with the Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA).

The Darklight Festival takes place in Dublin from August 23-26. It is primarily funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, with support from the Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA) and the Irish Film Board (IFB) in developing these key events in the festival programme.
