Welcome to the Lights Film School video tutorial on lighting on the "upstage" side of the camera. As filmmakers you'll often be looking for ways to add depth and dimension to your images. One way to do this is to "light on the upstage side of the camera" - meaning the side away from the camera. This will mean that your shadows will fall towards the camera rather than away from the camera.
