What you'll learn in this film production class:

We joins forces with Light Extreme for a workshop covering the technical and creative aspects of Cinematic Expression! This workshop is designed as hands-on and demonstration in motion picture lighting methodology. This workshop will cover the basic elements of Lighting Mood, that cannot be created in post. These include: Lighting Style, Exposure Ratio, Lighting Ratio, Light Quality and Light Direction. Once a cinematographer enters the floor it is about execution of previsualized concept with the use of Light meter rather then  improvisation based on monitor. Log Exposure expands latitude of dramatic potential, now more than ever – as far as true nature of creative process of Cinematic Expression  – within the domain of Cinematographer’s subjective interpretation. People aspiring to cross over to Feature Film visual narrative invited to attend.
