Online Masterclass on Zoom with the highly acclaimed Swedish cinematographer Sophia Olsson

– the director of photography known for Charter, Sameblod, Charmören (among others)


In collaboration with FSF, Film i Väst, Göteborg Film Festival, Gothenburg Studios Development with technical support from RedRental

"How do you find the core of the film? How do you express that into a visual language? What to focus on and where to start? How to collaborate with different directors? How to plan every scene into detail and yet be open and receptive for creative changes on set? How to listen to your guts?

I don´t have all the answers to these questions, but I’m looking forward having a conversation with you about them. I’ve been working with this throughout the years and know how different it can be from project to project and collaboration to collaboration. And I’m still learning."

Cinematographer

Sophia Olsson

Sophia Olsson, FSF, graduated in Cinematography from The National Film School of Denmark in 2009. She has shot nine features as well as award winning documentaries and commercials.

As a teenager Sophia’s fascination in watching films evolved. The curiosity of wanting to know how to create films, with all the components, started. The visual part influenced her the most and got her into studying still photography, to begin with. Later this turned into the obsession of filmmaking and finding out how to get through to the viewer's mind or feelings. Hopefully both at once.

Sophia Olsson graduated in 2002 from Film Directing at Filmhögskolan, Gothenburg University (now HDK-Valand’s Film). That gave her a perspective on the whole process of making a film, but it was still the visual expression that captured her the most. This made her eventually go into cinematography after graduating.

The films Sophia has shot have been premiering and winning awards at festivals all over the world, for example Cannes Film Festival, Berlin Film Festival, Venice Film Festival and Sundance Film Festival. She’s been winning awards for films like ”Sparrows” (director Runar Runarsson) ”Sami blood” (director Amanda Kernell), ”The Charmer” (director Milad Alami) and ”438 days” (director Jesper Ganslandt).

Her latest feature ”Charter” was directed by Amanda Kernell and premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2020. Sophia is nominated for Best Cinematography for the Guldbagge Awards 2020 (the Swedish Film Awards).
