10 Minute Lighting Masterclass

Courtesy of NoFilmSchool, one of our favorite websites and blogs, we came across this great source of inspiration and learning on YouTube. It's a ten minute lighting masterclass for low budget films, from the makers of the movie Soul Searcher.

Even though the movie was shot in mini-DV, and technology is much better now with cameras really sensitive to light, and even new portable lighting tech that provides much greater flexibility, you can learn a tremendous amount of things just by watching these simple ten minutes.

Showcasing a clear behind-the-scenes look at lighting some of the scenes in the film, and one of which the main lesson to take is that even with no money and just a few lights, you can achieve a great cinematic look if you put some thoughts and planning to your cinematography.

I love this.
