IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN: What is POORMAN’s PROCESS?  You have probably heard it, but not sure what it is all about.  Well back in the day you would project a driving sequence in the Background and then you would have your actors on stage and they would drive but not move.  Hence the term Poorman’s, because to go out and film sequences at night or day is very expensive.  This lesson is Part 2 of a 6 Part Course that takes you through everything necessary in delivering seamless VFX’s plate integration.   Shane Hurlbut, ASC takes us through light placement, what overhead frames are essential to control daylight, how to create a liquid light environment, how to shape the bounce light and when to use negative fill is just the tip of the iceberg.  Shane pulls from his 30 years of experience along with techniques that are never shared to give you a leg up on the competition.  Confidence in lighting is huge.  Shane systematically takes you from A to Z on all that you need to know so you can feel like you have GOT THIS!!!!
