- Okay, so we just got done with our interview,…and I had a nice interview with Andrew,…which was a pleasure.…And we're going to talk about our lighting setup…and we actually did a couple of things here,…but let me talk about our sources.…So the first key source for this setup…was a Joker-Bug 800, and it's a hard source,…and we're pushing it into one of my favorite modifiers,…which is a book light, so we're bouncing and diffusing,…and Greg's actually going to pan that in now.…It's heavily black-wrapped,…so we can keep some of that light off of,…in terms of that glint…from the other side of the barn doors, off of Andrew.…

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.
