Join Jem Schofield for an in-depth discussion in this video Final looks and lighting changes: Master, part of Advanced Cinematic Video Lighting.
- Okay, so more changes on our master…and pretty typical in a narrative shoot.…Really, the biggest change that we wanted to make here…is that when Vivian's standing over in this position,…we're really sort of using this diapered 1x1,…which was a little bit softer, but when we started…to come in for these closer shots, even on the 28,…it just wasn't doing what I wanted it to do,…especially to match with our shots later on.…So what we've done is, tucked over in the hallway,…Greg has actually put a 1x1 over there…with a Chimera softbox, so it's just softening that up.…
And that light's coming in here and that's just wrapping…around Vivian's face a little bit more.…It doesn't hurt the cause in terms of the rest…of the scene, as well, it's not really looking…that much different in terms of Tad's movement.…But then if, Tad, if you don't mind going over…and landing in your last position over here,…the other little thing we did, which Erin can kind of…tilt up and I hope show from over here, is Greg opened up…that light grid cloth a little bit just to kind of lift…
In this project-based course, producer, DP, and educator Jem Schofield of theC47 guides you through three different production scenarios: a narrative scene, a commercial project, and a corporate project. As in his original course, Cinematic Video Lighting, Jem doesn't just talk at you about lighting concepts, he appears on set with a crew, taking you through each project scenario and breaking down the creative decisions that helped accomplish the look and feel of each production. He goes into the equipment, space, and of course, the lighting setups for each project.
