- Same day of production,…but in terms of this particular setup…for this commercial, this is a…completely different day.…So Vivian was on the iPad looking…at the website in the morning.…Now it's a couple of days later.…She's about to go off for a run.…She has gone to the store and bought her H Plus,…and we are going to break down what this…setup's going to be, and then we've got…one more before we go outside.…So I'm actually going to have,…Greg, if you don't mind, we're going to…go ahead and turn on our key.…
We're still using that SUMO.…And we've still got that soft box on,…and this is more of a classical…sort of butterfly lighting, beauty lighting.…It's not quite above the camera in this setup,…but it's pretty close.…And this is really kind of what…I was looking for in terms of…that kind of glow and it just always looks great,…especially on female talent.…Flagging some lights over here…so that it's not hitting on the back so much…and on the sides,…and just controlling that big key source.…
And then starting to introduce some other stuff here.…
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.
