How To Light The Close Up For Dramatic Impact: Deadfall

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  10:15 Minutes of Instructional Video, lighting, camera schematics and a glossary of terms for better learningSUPPLIED W/ENGLISH SUBTITLES

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  This lesson is Part 19 of a 22 part series that takes you on a journey from Script to Screen.  Every nuances is discussed in detail from the first scout with the director, the tech scout, the pre-rig, the blocking, rehearsals to the final angle composed, lit and shot.

You have brought the camera around for the reverse angle, you have worked out the blocking and lens choice, now it is time to finesse.  This lesson is all about delivering lighting with emotion to take your character’s performance even higher.  We show every stroke that I make, every light, diffusion, and gel frame I add to perfect the close up for maximum impact.

  • What I use to modify the light for the close up
  • How I position the lights
  • What quality of light I use and WHY
  • Where I place the light to create the correct lighting emotion
  • Where the camera is placed, at what height?
