Professor: Gary Griffin

This class meets Saturday and Sunday, January 13th and 14th 10:30pm - 6:00pm in HN 544 and black box theater

Full Course Description:

This class will approach the subject from both a technical and aesthetic perspective. Students will learn how to light from a variety of situations including the basic single interview, group interviews/settings, action and verité.

Students will also learn aesthetic and stylistic approaches that communicate particular meaning through certain achieved ‘looks’. They will also become familiar with the wide variety of equipment and lighting instruments (such as the chimera soft box, scrims, gels, cutters, flags, etc.) that are industry standard, as well as learn of less expensive “guerilla” style alternatives. Students practice working with light measurement, exposure latitudes, lighting ratios and color temperature control.
