At this full end-to-end Lighting and Workflow Workshop for the Modern Digital Cinematographer, participants will learn:

• Light and Shadows: Using a combination of case studies and practical demonstrations, Alister will look at how different lighting techniques can dramatically alter the look of a scene.

• Lenses: What’s the difference between a prime lens and a zoom lens?  Which lenses should you consider for different types of production?

• How light levels effect the noise levels in a finished production, the all-important signal-to-noise ratio, and how to get the best results from any video camera.

• Master the difference between standard gammas, S-Log and raw: Which to use and when, and how to correctly expose S-log and raw.

• The importance of grading and post-production in modern workflows. Using footage shot from the lighting session, discover how to create different looks and styles including the blockbuster look, how to create your own Look Up Tables (LUT’s) and load them into a Sony F7, F5 or F55 camera.

• What is HDR and what do you need to do to ensure your content is ready for the HDR revolution? See how the Sony FS5 can shoot instant HDR material and learn how to use S-log or raw for high quality HDR productions, window pass-offs, running, and more.
