Understanding Camera Placement: Fathers and Daughters

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  3 Minutes of Movie Clips for Instruction, Lighting Schematics and Shooting Schedule    –Supplied w/English Subtitles

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  Do you ever wonder what it is like to be able to look over the Cinematographer’s shoulder on a Hollywood movie.  The ON SET SERIES is exactly that, for you to experience what I experience every day of production.  How we deal with all the stress, pressure along with keeping a positive attitude and communicating your vision to the crew to then help you deliver it.

Come on set with me for On Set With Shane Day #14 and find out what lighting challenges I encountered while shooting Fathers and Daughters. I’m sharing my tools and techniques used to create the look and feel of this feature film.

  • Secrets on how to light for Three cameras that took me over 20 years to master
  • How to shoot for transition shots
  • How to turn your limited lighting budget into a look that saves tons of time and money
  • How to light office interiors in small spaces
  • Secrets on blowing out windows to save lighting and your budget’s bottom line


<<<Jason>>> Great Lesson, very creative use of walking MoVi’s in from the initial WS.
<<<Ahmed>>> Thanks Shane for the very good explanation.
<<<Jonathan G>>>Great lesson and the Hurlbut Academy is such plethora of knowledge! Really enjoying my experience thus far.
<<<Richard S>>>Great work again Shane. Thank you for taking the time to share, it really means a lot to me and I am sure many others as well. Now if these could only be 10 times longer. lol
<<<Hugh H>>>I love this series. I feel a part of the process. Thanks Shane, once again you give more than I could ever expect. By the way Shane, funny experience – I was at the Sound Advice Tour and Mark asked anyone had been to the Illumination Tour. I raised my hand and he asked what the class was about…I said lighting for emotion. Its funny I walked into your tour thinking it was about cameras and cool lights…left realizing that its all about emotion – and I had a boat load to learn. You changed how I look at light each day, the people, the background, everything – and each and every day I learn a little more. You are one hell of a teacher– Thanks Shane! I know what you do for us takes lots of resources, and honestly a lot of what little time you have available. For that I can never thank you enough. I will never be the film maker you are, but I will achieve more because of teachers like you! Thanks…
<<<Christopher K>>>You just give without boundaries, and you give with passion.Thank you for every word!
