ABOUT THIS MODULE

When you first step onto a set or scout a location, it can be an overwhelming experience trying to figure out how to light the scene.  Where do you start?  Where do you put the key light?  How do you work with the ambience? This module not only gives you valuable pointers and a step-by-step guide to planning the lighting for a scene, but Emmy-winning DP Jason Tomaric, Vice President of Lighting of Arri John Gresch and veteran gaffer Ron Sill walk you through the lighting of a scene for a movie.  See for yourself the DP’s process as he shares his tips and techniques with you from first thoughts of the set through the final lighting.
