Film and Video Lighting Workshop ADVANCED, Brooklyn, NY


(Brooklyn, NY)

Light & Shadow: a Film and Video Lighting Workshop is a one-weekend, intensive, hands-on workshop for independent filmmakers and students who want to learn fast, simple and effective lighting styles without a big-studio budget. It focuses on the philosophy that SHADOW is just as, if not more, important to the depth and atmosphere of a scene than LIGHT.

I believe in America, a voice in the darkness says. The scene fades in to a single light shining onto the forehead of a balding man. Everything else is hidden within shadows. As the camera slowly pulls back, we see a light shine on the imposing silhouette of Marlon Brando. Thus starts the immortal beginning of The Godfather.

Legendary cinematographer Gordon Willis and other great filmmakers understand not only how to best light a set, but how light affects the mood of a scene and the emotions of an actor.

The workshop concentrates on easily applied skills to do a lighting set-up. Participants will quickly become adept at lighting real-world situations through demonstrations, Q&A's, and hands-on experience. You will learn to create polished and dynamic lighting that can set mood and capture an audience.

In this Advanced Workshop, we’ll explore topics such as Creating Mood, Depth and Dimension, Natural/Source Lighting, 10 Ways to Light 1 Actor/Scene, and many more. We’ll have exercises in Lighting for Movements, Face to Face Interviews, and Simulating Scenes from Movies. So expect lots of hands-on practice, problem-solving tips and tricks, and lively discussions.

WHEN November 21 & 22 (Sat & Sun), from 11 am - 3 pm

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

    Emily
  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
