Join Jem Schofield for an in-depth discussion in this video Lighting in outside environments, part of Advanced Cinematic Video Lighting.
- Okay, so we're out here in the Carpinteria Bluffs,…and we have actually just wrapped our commercial shoot.…High five, Vivian.…High five to Greg.…And it's always a good day when you wrap,…and we are just going to talk a little bit…about what decisions we made now that…we're out here in daylight.…And we scouted this location a few days ago,…and we were actually going to shoot…in an entirely different place.…We thought we were going to get here at around noon,…and we showed up at about 3:30, four o'clock…in the afternoon, so the sun had moved considerably.…
Sun, on day like this in California,…is a little spotty source, and we loved…when we kind of re-scouted and we started to walk around,…that we had this really beautiful edge here…that was coming in, and the sun has even moved…since we just finished our last shot.…But we wanted to make sure that we could…get a nice frame, and so what we did is…we shot our wide, our master, a 28-millimeter,…and we had these two four by four floppies,…and these were just basically playing right 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.
