Cinematographer to speak at Photo Club: Finally learn how to use the video settings on your digital camera. Photography Club of Beaufort’s next meeting on Monday, May 13 will feature Vitor Lindo,  a photographer and cinematographer who co-founded the Institute of Cinematic Arts in Savannah.   His intense passion for films and photographs have allowed him to acquire knowledge in every facet of the production process. Amassing credits as a director of photography, still photographer, director, writer, gaffer, sound mixer, editor and colorist. He has an insatiable passion for visual arts and an inherent interest for taboo subjects. In the Summer of 2011, it is this interest that led him to travel to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to direct a feature length documentary on the extremely secretive world of “Candomble.” Vitor spent two months living with and documenting the rituals of the controversial Afro-Brazilian faith. The compiled material will be released in a documentary and photo-book, both titled “Dancing With Saints.” He is currently in post production on both projects.  Offering an array of classes, the ICA also features workshops including acting, cinematography, lighting, modeling, Photoshop, screenwriting, video editing, and photography. It is also the only facility in the region to offer on camera acting classes specifically for film and television. His work can be viewed at dalundaproductions.com. The Photography Club of Beaufort meets at 7 p.m. at ARTworks in the K-Mart Plaza on Boundary Street in Beaufort. Free admission.  Public is invited.
