When he accidentally found himself lecturing film school students a few years back, Warwick realised how much he enjoyed sharing his passion with others. His love of cinematography – its art and its technicality – is contagious. Previous students have noted they were inspired by him to pursue a career in the industry, just as they were about to lose interest. He brings relatable experiences, anecdotes, knowledge and humour to his classes which creates an inclusive, enjoyable and engaging atmosphere in which to learn. During his 5 year tenure as President of the ACS, Warwick became aware of the lack of cinematography-focussed education. He planted the seed for high level masterclasses, running ACS events with the likes of Andrew Lesnie ACS ASC and Peter James ACS ASC which were a huge success.
In 2022, he established ShotClass to fill this void, curating educational events for serious cinematographers and camera crew.
