How to Use A Fire Effects Light w/ Real Fire

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  15 Minutes of Instructional Video, Detailed Written Breakdown, Lighting Schematics, and Side by Side Comparison for better instruction-SUPPLIED W/ENGLISH SUBTITLES 

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  This lesson is Part 2 of a 2 Part series on Fire Lighting effects.  The game has changed since LED technology but some hold overs from the past still live on.  The Trash Can Fire light is an effect light that I have used on many feature films and in this Lesson we put the Fire effect into use and show you immediately how you can put these techniques into action.  This effect has been now duplicated by Arri with their Sky Panel technology and I love their new effects software.  But even as lighting technology changes the techniques and lesson in here still hold true on exposures and matching fire sources.

  • Why not just use a real fire
  • How to keep your lighting effects consistent
  • What quality and color of light is best
  • What types of applications can you use this for
