Lighting Techniques on a Budget: A Small to No Crew Production Workshop

This hands-on lighting workshop will teach you how to choose the right lighting equipment for your projects and your budget (for small to no crew productions). You will get to see and use a variety of lighting gear, from low to high-end lighting equipment and accessories in a real-world production environment. 

Your instructor, Jem Schofield of theC47, will take attendees through how to light for documentary, in-house and corporate based projects. He will take attendees through the process of planning & lighting using largely low-key, cinematic techniques. This class will feature lighting, lighting control, composition and also typical camera set-ups to teach you how to light for a variety of projects. It will also discuss and demonstrate certain "rules" that can be followed to help you consistently shoot great looking and natural one and two camera interviews. 

You will go through a variety of lighting situations through lectures, lighting demonstrations, and specific lighting assignments (this is a hands-on workshop). You will learn the techniques behind a one, two, three and four-point lighting set ups, key to fill ratios, and how these techniques create mood. By the end of this workshop, you will have the ability to choose the right types of lights and equipment for your projects. 

The workshop will be delivered in a conversational style while teaching the process and craft of small to no crew production. Exactly like being on set or on location!
