Join Jem Schofield for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of lighting: Candy shot, part of Advanced Cinematic Video Lighting.
- Okay, so we've got about 10 minutes…until our talent arrives…so we're going to have to get through this one quickly…but this is our third one.…This is the candy wrapper…set-up I guess we call it,…and Greg is running around.…This is Josh, by the way, how's it going Josh?…- Hey, going well.…- Josh, on this particular shoot,…though he is also a live action director…and many other things,…is really our Ace A camera operator…for the hero shots, right?…- Correct.…- We're locking off our camera right now…to show you the setups,…but on the shoot you're going to be going handheld.…
- Mostly handheld on an Easyrig.…- Yep, and we'll be swapping between that 28 and that 55.…- Correct.…- And we'll be figuring that out…a little bit more specifically when the actors show up,…but what I want to do is show you…what lighting we're looking at right now.…Josh is actually going to step behind the camera,…so that he can operate a little bit,…and I want to just sort of take you through…what we have in this setup.…And you'll see a lot of stands and things…
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.
