After high demand from the first digital download comes Lighting Masterclass 2 from Eve Hazelton. The Realm Pictures DOP has put together another hour long package offering insight into depth, dimension and psychology within cinematography.
Additionally the video tutorials offer a beginners guide to useful power equations within filmmaking and a detailed walk through of lighting a scene from script to screen.
Lighting Masterclass 1 came off the back of a successful guest post on Philip Bloom’s blog, with the original digital download offered up as a Kickstarter reward for funding The Underwater Realm – a Realm Pictures project that itself proved very insightful for followers as Dave, Eve and team heavily documented a very ambitious series of short films all shot underwater.
Lighting Masterclass 2 continues where number 1 left off, split into 3 10 minute sections of theory before a half hour long walk through of how Eve goes about lighting a scene from script to screen.
The theory sections delve into detail on the principles of dimension and depth and how these help tell your story within filmmaking, as well as the psychology of filmmaking (why a track is used instead of a zoom, why you’d opt to use slow motion over normal speed) as well as a handy section for beginners to understand staple power equations, and how these can be applied in the field when mating lights with your locations.
The walk through section takes you through Eve’s notions as a DOP, reading the script, developing a mood board, kit lists and finally building the scene from scratch.
Along with the release of Lighting Masterclass 2 come 3 great free tutorials that can be viewed below:
I’d highly recommend checking out both Masterclass videos, the free tutorials are a good representation of the skill level in which the full length downloads are targeted at.
