This 2-day workshop is for cinematographers, video professionals, and freelance filmmakers who want to engage in a dynamic discussion about lighting and learn about lighting techniques and styles used in feature films, commercials, and episodic television. Through lectures and discussions, the class covers the importance of lighting design in visual storytelling, and the processes and industry practices used to execute a wide range of lighting set-ups.

In addition to discussing aesthetics, we will touch upon the practical use of industry-standard lighting technology, including LED, HMI, tungsten, fluorescent, and more. We will discuss working as a crew, and the roles of DP, Gaffer, G&E, and more.

The class will be lead by one of our filmmaking faculty and will include a couple of guest lectures from career cinematographers with extensive experience working at a high level in the film and television industry.
