This series of tutorials, taught by producer, DP, and educator Jem Schofield of theC47, shows you the equipment and time-tested lighting techniques you need to get cinematic results. Filmed on location at a California brewery—a set with a lot of action and a lot of angles—the course takes you through the process of planning, lighting, and shooting video using largely cinematic (low-key) lighting techniques. Jem uses a conversational style of direction that relies on collaboration with the crew and the clients, but the lessons are flexible enough to apply to productions of many different types and sizes, including corporate video and documentaries. By the end, you'll have the skills you need to go out and create professional lighting setups in the real world.

Skill Level Intermediate
- Hey everybody, Jem Schofield here and welcome to the course that I've been wanting to do on lighting for a long, long time. I've been teaching the craft of video production and film making for ages and this is what I wanna show you guys. The craft of lighting. I don't wanna show you what a keylight is, or what a backlight is. I wanna show you about how we light. So while we're coming into one singular location to do that, what we're gonna do is tackle lots of different types of lighting setups, scouting locations, we're gonna be talking about equipment and you're gonna be able to apply this to lots and lots of corporate and documentary projects.
So I wanna fill this room with tons of equipment, get started by showing you that so let's go.
