- Hey, everybody, Jem Schofield here, and welcome to my follow-up to Cinematic Video Lighting. I'm really excited about this course because it's an advanced lighting course, and, unlike the first course that I did, which focused on one project, in this course, we're going to focus on three. So, we're going to break down a narrative project, we're going to be bringing in actors into this space, we've got lots of different light fixtures, lots of different lighting setups that we're going to take you through. We have a second project which is a commercial project, part of which is going to be shot here on this location, and then we're also going to be going outside on location to an area, a really beautiful area where we're going to shooting some exteriors, we're going to be dealing with natural light and controlling that.
And, then the third project is going to be a documentary/corporate project, and, unlike the first course that I did, this one's going to be a little bit more advanced, we're going to be getting into some different framings and a little bit more finesse in terms of what we're doing lighting wise. So, fantastic crew, fantastic cast that we have on this project, so let's get started.
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.
