The target of this study is to present an international overview of the teaching of cinematography performed by cinematographers. It is executed by the Centre for Advanced Studies of Film Technology at the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF). The study aims to cover various topics, from working conditions via teaching subjects and teaching methods to the personal and individual approaches of the participants. The influences of new technologies are included, as well as those of the traditional ones, the institutional frameworks for teaching and the personal motivation for teaching. Over all, 125 cinematographers from 40 states all over the world took part in this survey, giving 13.720 answers. But of course this study cannot present more than a snapshot style cross-section, and there are new questions that arise about teaching cinematography to be answered in the future.
