Abstract or description

Making moving image products is exciting as it combines the artistic and the technical. When starting out in any aspect of production, it is important to know how to analyse the use of technology and then how you might apply it on set. I teach a module which focusses on the production elements of camera, lighting and sound alongside the other elements of filmmaking. Although it is a practical module, it is important to watch and study content where the skills can be seen in action, with students then trying them out. I select clips and examples from BoB which demonstrate specific uses of technology and application in film and TV and then I explore with the students how certain effects may have been achieved.

One of the areas I focus on is how to think about lighting a diverse cast successfully – on both a technical level and an aesthetic one. Central to this is considering diversity on-screen and behind the scenes, and working to ensure that all students feel confident in lighting the cast (ie all cast members are seen) and in considering the meaning of their selected lighting choices.
