Hi folks/students/eaters of knowledge I’m holding a workshop for cinematography set lighting. There are two four hour sessions being held at The Cove studio on Markfield Road, Tottenham, London on Saturday 18th August as part of the Fountayne Road Open Warehouse Day. It's aimed at people who haven't had any or little set lighting experience to come and educate their eyes by trying out things for themselves to see what the results are. A set is being specifically built for the workshop and it’s a fantastic opportunity to learn some real set lighting techniques whether for commercials, drama or music videos. We will also have a translight from Rosco to add a bit or reality to the set. So far Arri Lighting, Cirrolite (Dedolight and KinoFlo), Greenkit, Lightpanels, Rosco and Hive have expressed in interest or committed to supplying lighting, so a big thank you to them. This is being done at a really low cost due to the generosity of the studio owner Malene Oddershede Bach, the lighting sponsors and a number of other people contributing their help for free. As a result each four hour session is only £10! Here are the two links to book the sessions at Eventbrite, one morning session and one afternoon. Read the details of the sessions here and note that one session (afternoon) is women only just to try and get better numbers as women are under catered for in our industry for behind the camera (or light). https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cinematography-workshop-session-1-interior-set-lighting-daynight-tickets-48718216497 https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/womens-cinematography-workshop-session-2-interior-set-lighting-daynight-tickets-48626522237 Jonathon Sendall DP, London UK
Hello there, Im curious if anyone has some recommendations for lighting a backdrop in a studio setting? (I'm still learning a great deal so forgive me if I label something incorrectly!) The set is a 10ft H x 20ft W room in which there are two windows on the far wall. I have looked into renting a backdrop from pacific studios and they have explained to me that this specific rental is a true translight backdrop which needs to be lit from behind. I can see how this would be beneficial as to provide a true luminance for the background. However, my independent research has led me to examples such as the following image album: http://imgur.com/a/pcznW These images seem to show a vinyl backdrop which is lit from the front. My question here is, what methods are suitable for front lit vinyl backdrops and how does that compare to a back lit translight? Would I use the same methods (I.E. Kinos from above) for the translight as the front lit vinyl? Thanks very much for the suggestions! The project I am working on is a short film produced and funded by myself where I can decide how much budget to allocate to various lights etc. Thanks!
