INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON: 11+ minutes of instructional video from On Set with Shane Hurlbut ASC. Detailed written breakdowns, Top Down Lighting & Blocking Schematics, Lighting Lists templates and Side by Side Comparisons.
IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN: Pacing, is it too slow, is it to fast, what is the audience feeling with this style of blocking and lensing? These filmmaking levers are what we as artists have to be constantly thinking about. Shane Hurlbut, ASC takes you through the theory of blocking and composition. Your conversations with the director are so important to get inside his or her mind so that you can then deliver the correct shot pacing, rhythm and tone. In this lesson you will learn the questions to ask, the thought process of getting it done and how to do it while the rehearsing is happening so that you can be fully prepared and give your director the most time to dial in the performances.
