About the Class

In this class, I'll show you the equipment and techniques I used to light a Christmas music video that aired on CMT.

The goal of this class is to broaden your understanding of cinematography and everything that goes into making beautiful frames. We'll talk about the necessary steps a cinematographer takes during pre-production including location scouting, storyboarding and planning, gear prep, and choosing a color palette to work in.

Then we'll head to the set and look behind the scenes at the lighting setup for each shot. We'll not only cover the how but more importantly, the why. I'll also show you some alternative equipment you can use if you can't afford the cameras, lens, and lighting I had with me for this shoot.

You should have a fundamental understanding of filmmaking, color temperature, and camera exposure will help. I'll show you exactly what I used to make these images and explain why I made the choices I did.
