I’m presenting a few filming lighting tips to students from the Starlit Voice Drama School program. In place of reinventing the wheel, or rather representing the wheel… I thought I’d aim to share some the great resources already out there on the dear old www.
Here’s a great video from a great blog, Through the Lens : with Chris Weaver. It shows light changes really clearly.
Here’s another goodie though it gets a little promotional towards the end – some great examples of the impact little changes make.
1. Orientation – to enable the audience to see where the story is taking place.
2. Mood or feeling (season of year and time of day)
3. Pictorial beauty, aesthetic pleasure.
4. Depth, perspective, third dimensional illusion.”
