    Stagehand TV-Location Lighting with Geoff Burton


    by Stagehandspace

    Location lighting, utilizing the equipment one truck can carry, is the most common task a young cinematographer will face.

    Geoff Burton (The Year My Voice Broke, Flirting, Wide Sargasso Sea) condenses his many years of location lighting experience in this highly practical and useful workshop. Geoff's approach emphasizes maximum use of natural lighting resources (daylight and practicals) and imitating these sources with the light he adds.

    Geoff shows how to work with the limitations of location space and design (in this case three rooms of a cramped apartment) rather than against them. He demonstrates how fast stocks and fast work can be critical to success.
