There will 3 main areas covered in this workshop:

  1. Corporate Lighting (interview and talking head)
  2. Creative Lighting (interior day and night)
  3. Nighttime Exterior Lighting (for narrative styles)

Attendees will have hands-on opportunities to tackle creative and technical challenges and work in a team environment. Participants will be using a mixture of lighting sources such as HMI, Tungsten, Florescent and LED sources. All attendees are required to bring a set of gloves for protecting your hands against hot materials. It is strongly recommended that attendees have a light meter with them during the workshop.
