- Okay, so this is actually our last…setup inside of this location for the…commercial spot, and it is a key one…because it's where we see the H+…sports water for the first time.…So it's coming out of the refrigerator.…Let's actually take a look at that…movement there, and this is actually our first light.…So we've got a low caster, which I had…mentioned just prior to this that's…in the refrigerator, and it's positioned…a certain way so we get a little bit…of that light from behind the bottle,…it's lighting stuff up, and then Vivian…is holding the bottle in terms of her…blocking a certain way so that we can…read that the first time, and then she's…going to take that bottle out, it's going to…switch hands, and she's going to hold that,…and that's basically our movement,…and that's where we can see our second light.…
Let's just go ahead and see that.…And I want to see it, um, let's just,…let's reach over here, right?…Boom, thank you very much.…And it's just a Dedo LED and it is…diffed with some 250 over here,…we got 250 on here, right?…
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.
