Grip & Lighting Workshop March 23 -25

Whether you’re working in fine art painting, still photography or cinematography there is one discipline that unites all of the great art throughout history: Lighting. You can’t create an image without it. This two day workshop is for filmmakers, cinematographers, gaffers, grips, electricians and anyone involved in moving images who wishes to understand the fundamentals of lighting.

This class will give you the confidence to work on real world sets by covering all of the most widely used grip and lighting equipment as well as delving into the philosophy and psychology of the art and craft of lighting.

Starting with safety procedures when working with electricity and grip equipment, the class will then go hands-on and allow you to learn the finer points of setting stands, shaping light and working with HMI, tungsten, fluorescent and LED lighting instruments.

Day 1 will also include Camera demos with the RED One and the Canon 5d Mark II. Discussions with theses cameras will delve into t-stops, exposure, footcandles, color and lenses.

Day 2 will be almost entirely devoted to lighting exercises. We will shoot both in and out of the studio, shooting car interiors, interviews, day for night, day exteriors and dramatic interiors. We will also shoot an exercise with the new RED EPIC, shooting at 300fps and projecting the image for playback.

Michael Lang of Death Grip Electric will be the lead instructor. Guest instructors include Cinematographer Ben Drickey of Torchwerks and First AC Kyle Wullschleger. Please click on the names for more info.

Space is limited. Reserve your spot today.
