The Canadian Society of Cinematographers holds a hands-on workshop conducted over 2 days by accomplished cinematographers, offering participants comprehensive knowledge on the fundamentals of practical lighting setups.
Participants will work in groups and will alternate the roles of DoP, camera operator, camera assistant and gaffer. Each group is assigned a digital camera package and access to a gaffer and electric. Actors will be on hand to contribute to effective blocking and lighting setups. Content shot will be critiqued at the end of each day.
Participants are encouraged to bring a light meter (if they have one) for the practical exercises.
