This three-day advanced lighting workshop gives cinematographers, gaffers, and filmmakers the opportunity to explore dramatic lighting techniques used in fiction films.
Through hands-on sessions, lectures, screenings, and discussions you will explore the importance of light in visual storytelling and the techniques and processes behind complex lighting setups.
Working collaboratively as a film crew, you take on the creative and technical challenges of feature film cinematography. The class will learn how to scout a location and plan lighting requirements for a scene. You will tackle challenging lighting situations with goals to achieve specific visual aesthetics through hands-on sessions. You will light scenes with LED, HMI, tungsten, and fluorescent units, learning to use grip equipment to shape and control the light through practical exercises. You will light a variety of interior and exterior residential and commercial spaces, as well as car interiors, day and night scenes, and dramatic scenarios with actors, using the most recent and advanced technology in film lighting.
