- Craftsmanship, quality, and community spirit.…Out of that, Topa Topa was born.…I really wanted to start something…that we could create a community environment around…and beer, it's the greatest beverage in the world…so it's a great way to get people together.…- After home brewing for a number of years,…Jack and I started the home brewing co-op…where we got 12 guys together and bought…a pretty large home brewing system…and pretty quickly realized after we were doing the co-op…that we just loved doing and wanted to take it…to the next step.…
- We all did a stint in San Diego…and we were blown away by that beer scene…and really wanted to bring that level of quality…and commitment to the product up here…to the Ventura County area.…- Ventura's kind of a unique place…where there's the water and the mountains…and pretty much everything within 30 minutes of here.…It's a great active community and night gathering place…for its people within.…- Aside from beer, my favorite thing about Topa Topa…is definitely the team.…
This series of tutorials, taught by producer, DP, and educator Jem Schofield of theC47, shows you the equipment and time-tested lighting techniques you need to get cinematic results. Filmed on location at a California brewery—a set with a lot of action and a lot of angles—the course takes you through the process of planning, lighting, and shooting video using largely cinematic (low-key) lighting techniques. Jem uses a conversational style of direction that relies on collaboration with the crew and the clients, but the lessons are flexible enough to apply to productions of many different types and sizes, including corporate video and documentaries. By the end, you'll have the skills you need to go out and create professional lighting setups in the real world.
