The Advanced Fundamentals of Light

All the best professional cinematographers know it, many keep it to
themselves: the art of film and video lighting isn’t about working the lamps, it's about understanding light. Another secret? Size isn't everything. Sometimes the best tool for the job is a 100-Watt bulb in a 5-dollar lampshade.

This hands-on workshop will give you the skills you need to start making the most of your limited lighting budget. Participants will first learn how to look at, analyze, and manipulate light, then move on to figuring out how to create a particular look, using the materials at hand. The workshop will also, in the process, cover the need-to-know technical aspects of basic lamp operation, colour balancing, what ‘three-point lighting’ is really all about, and how not to flip your breakers.
The workshop is designed to accommodate different levels of lamp-operating experience: from none-at-all to considerable.

It is appropriate for anyone who’s ever struggled to decide what lamp to put where for a given situation.
Including, for example:
• Would-be cinematographers/ videographers looking for a better handle on the lighting part of the job.
• Directors wanting to improve their ability to communicate their vision to their tech crew.
• Do-it-all-yourself video makers wanting more control over the ‘look’ of their work.
• Beginning video makers wanting to start off on the right foot.
