- A willingness to be entertained while you learn.
A 6-hour, deeply immersive look into cinematic lighting, with parodies of programs such as Mythbusters, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and What Not to Wear. We cover common mistakes, hard and soft light, using shadows, proper exposure and exposure tools, lighting technique, creating a mood with light, all built around meeting the ARTISTIC GOALS of your film/video project. We then talk about all of the lighting and grip gear, have an interview with Levie Isaacks, A.S.C, and more. And then, we showcase two short films we made specifically for this set (watch them now, for free!), and sit down with the cinematographer and director in an hour-long, behind-the-scenes featurette breaking down everything that was done to light the films, and we show our lighting lessons as applied to in real-world film production settings -- with the results to show for it!
- Beginners, intermediates who want to learn why instead of just how, and professionals for review and reference
Introduction! A road map of the lessons ahead, common misconceptions and mistakes people make when they're first starting out, three simple things which will get you started making cinematic images, and some of the science of how light works.
You've learned how much light you need, the kinds of light you work with, and where to put the light and shadows -- now learn the equipment which makes the light, and the gear which controls it and helps make it do whatever you need. Learn tungstens, HMIs, fluorescents, some LEDs, softboxes, barn doors, gels, reflectors, Mafer clamps, and everything in between!
