The aim of this course is to show how to light common sets, people and objects such as cars, but with an eye to CG lighting. For example most of the car lighting will be our DOP Ben Allan ACS directing a CG artist. You will learn the techniques of lighting on set, the types of lights and many tricks of the real world - that are increasingly relevant in lighting in CG with the advent of Physically Plausible Lighting. Most lessons will be live action, but about 30% will be CG applications. Ben Allan has taught DOP courses at fxphd before very successfully and has a great knack at innovative problem solving, while himself being very fluent in digital tools and plugins.
