When you show up at a location with little or no crew and you have little to no time (always!), how do you light and shoot great looking interviews & footage for documentary and corporate projects and small narrative projects? What lighting equipment should you bring and what choices should you make?
In this session, taught by producer, DP and educator Jem Schofield of theC47, Jem will show you the equipment and time tested tips and techniques to get these results quickly and easily. He will discuss and demonstrate certain “rules” or “agreements” that can be followed to help you consistently light and shoot effectively.
Topics covered will include…
Lighting and Shooting Great Looking Interviews
Shooting Effective B-Roll Footage
Shaping & Controlling Light (Bounce, Block, Diffuse)
Understanding & Using Negative Fill
Jem will use a variety of lighting fixtures including Westcott’s Flex and Ice Light products. He will also use Westcott’s new Scrim Jim Cine system including theC47 Book Light and DP Kits.
