Join Jem Schofield for an in-depth discussion in this video Lighting for the over-the-shoulder (OTS) shot, part of Advanced Cinematic Video Lighting.
- Okay, so our second setup here with Vivian…and we've actually just finished shooting that.…We are now on the reverse, so this is the website focus.…This is where we get to see for the first time…sort of the H+ website and we've got this nice picture…of runners and everything else.…And we are shooting this both as locked off shots,…so over the shoulder here, over the shoulder here,…and we also have a little bit of a move.…And the first thing I want to acknowledge from a lighting…stand point are these two 4x4 floppies.…
So we've got these playing, now.…This is obviously blocking light, it's creating…some negative fill, and it's really important here…in terms of what we're trying to accomplish…because now all of the focus is on that website.…So we've got a dirty shot of Vivian, here,…and then we're revealing the website.…So it's really important for us to have that playing.…And I think what I want to do, instead of turning on…the larger sources right now, we're going to go ahead…and look at the specials and these smaller fixtures.…
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.
