LIGHTING for Film and Television
About This Course
A 6-hour, deeply immersive look into cinematic lighting, with parodies of programs such as Mythbusters,Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and What Not to Wear. We cover common mistakes, hard and soft light, using shadows, proper exposure and exposure tools, lighting technique, creating a mood with light, all built around meeting the ARTISTIC GOALS of your film/video project. We then talk about all of the lighting and grip gear, have an interview with Levie Isaacks, A.S.C, and more. And then, we showcase two short films we made specifically for this set (watch them now, for free!), and sit down with the cinematographer and director in an hour-long, behind-the-scenes featurette breaking down everything that was done to light the films, and we show our lighting lessons as applied to in real-world film production settings — with the results to show for it!

CONCLUSION & CREDITS
We founded Wrightsville Beach Studios in 2006 to create the very best in tutorials and training on film and video lighting, sound, and more. Created by professionals for aspiring professionals, we take viewers a step beyond other tutorials and show not only the what or how, but the WHY.
Founded by Emmy Award-winning producer and world-renowned Panasonic camera expert Barry Green, and DVXuser post-production guru David Jimerson. We began with the HVX BootCamp DVD, the definitive video tutorial for the enormously successful Panasonic HVX200 camcorder, and soon followed it up with what we consider the finest tutorials for movie Sound and Lighting.
Our catalog of award-winning, original programming is growing all the time. Viewers learn with the pros in easy-to-understand, funny, and immersive presentations – great for those just starting out and valuable reference guides for more advanced users. Find out why more and more people have said they learned more from us in a couple of hours than they have in years of classes.
