The Lightness of Touch - The Brevity of Commitment with Paul Warren

This is a workshop about physicality, movement and meaning.
Two words in our modern times that are laden with misconception, ... touch - commitment. What happens when we swap the meanings of these two words? How do we than interact with one another? Definitions and our rolls with each other can become clearer.

Paul J Warren is one of Australia’s most experienced Directors of Photography. Shooting in the broadest range of cultures throughout the world, his portfolio is extensive and displays a huge variety of formats, styles and content.

His knowledge and ability to cross between the different demands of long form feature films, TVC's, documentaries and short films is formidable. This gives him a rare and versatile approach for the many ways of finding the appropriate visual dialogue for the story at hand.

After a very sound grounding in documentaries, current affairs and TV drama with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Paul left ABC TV to pursue his independent career.

Paul’s first feature film ‘The Cup’ was in Official Selection for the prestigious Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival.

The feature film ‘Wrath’, released worldwide, is another example of his versatility in working with demanding stories and locations.

Paul's understanding of all the current formats and their impact on the story from pre-production right through to post-production is invaluable.

He also teaches specialised digital camera courses at AFTRS.

Paul is also a dancer. He has been dancing Argentinean tango for the past 16 years.

"... tango by its very nature is an improvised dance relying on intuition and generosity within the embrace, and demands of its dancers, openness to the intuitive moment to create a 'dialogue' within the embrace".
