Lighting for Emotion


Illuminating small spaces and making it look natural is one of the most important things a cinematographer can learn and master. In this new series, Shane guides you through how he creates, crafts, manicures the light and the lensing of an emotional scene. What do you do when you have white walls and a very small space?  What lighting techniques do you use to deliver contrast and create a more cinematic image.  With On Set step-by-step guidance focusing on the film, DeadFall, Shane shows you every trick in the book for delivering an emotional performance with lighting, camera, and lenses.

Your mentoring is nothing short of gold dust – I’m knocking on the door of agency level work; my budgets vary from $20k to $350K with a crew under me ranging from 2 – 15, and while I’ve been shooting professionally since I was 18 (for 20 years this year in fact) listening to your podcasts has instilled a sense of confidence I’ve not had before. The techniques you teach are skills that can be rolled back to any level of production. The foundations that you give us will last us a life time.

The Hurlbut Academy is unlike any other online resource. Shane and his team have managed to create something that feels like an extended family. The level of insight I have personally gained, has been invaluable in taking my work and career to the next level. This is nuts and bolts training and techniques, taught by a DP working at the highest level, in a way that is engaging, fun and incredibly practical. There is a real sense of the Hurlbut Academy constantly evolving, and that you are a part of a group who seek to encourage and inspire one another.

There really is no education better than this for DPs. It takes you beyond school, showing you how the professionals do it. It's the whole package of experience that one learns when you join the Hurlbut Academy. Great stuff.

I want to tell you, one filmmaker to another, that Hurlbut Academy has transformed my career. There is no other filmmaking community like the Hurlbut Academy. When you join, you're not just getting access to content, you're getting access to an entire network of people who care about you.
