Lighting for Corporate, In-House & Small Crew Productions with Jem Schofield of theC47 – Los Angeles

Companies are now building in-house video production teams (generally made up of 1-5 people), to create ongoing and high quality content for their web presence and social media outlets. Corporate video production companies have also changed in terms of their structure and resources. While the equipment has gotten much better and less expensive, the crews have gotten smaller and smaller! Jem Schofield of theC47 will take attendees through the process of planning, lighting and shooting using largely low-key & cinematic…

LUTs 101: Theory – Los Angeles

Overview

Many of the latest camera systems offer either Log or Raw recording modes that give us the most possible information out of the camera. These features are great at keeping the original camera ‘negative’ as clean as possible, but at the same time they can leave your image on set looking very flat and boring. This is where the use of Look Up Tables (LUT) comes in, which are offsets that allow you to manipulate your image and create a look without affecting the camera originals. This workshop is split into two sections, LUTs 101: Theory & LUTs 201: Practical Application.

LUTs 101: Theory will demonstrate the process for creating a LUT for cameras like the Alexa, Sony F5 & F55, and Varicam. Specific focus is types of LUTs, LUT combinations and layering, and tools used for OnSet LUT creation.


LUTs 201: Practical Application – Los Angeles

Overview

Many of the latest camera systems offer either Log or Raw recording modes that give us the most possible information out of the camera. These features are great at keeping the original camera ‘negative’ as clean as possible, but at the same time they can leave your image on set looking very flat and boring. This is where the use of Look Up Tables (LUT) comes in, which are offsets that allow you to manipulate your image and create a look without affecting the camera originals. This workshop is split into two sections, LUTs 101: Theory & LUTs 201: Practical Application.

LUTs 201: Practical Application further expands on the curriculum of LUTs 101: Theory. This class explores the creative side of LUT design as well as applying LUTs in different post production applications. Working with live camera sources, this class demonstrates creating looks from various cameras. These looks will then be applied in a variety of post editing and grading applications.


Understanding Color & Gamma – Los Angeles

Focusing on the theory and reality of color, this workshop covers how color and contrast are created both in our eyes and in the digital world. Topics such as color space, color gamut, sub-sampling, bit depth, luminance, and various color standards will be covered, along with a discussion of how color may differ between various camera models.


Understanding Scopes – Los Angeles

This workshop covers the use of waveforms and vectorscopes on set. This workshop also demonstrates the use of many other tools used by modern digital cinematographers, including false color, zebra lines, and histograms. As part of this process, the workshop will also include a live demonstration of matching two different camera systems using scopes.


Raw, Log & Uncompressed – Los Angeles

Overview Many of today’s latest cameras offer Log & Raw recording modes, giving extended dynamic range and versatility in post. However, shooting in Log & Raw presents many challenges both in the field and in the post-production process. This class is an introduction to Log & Raw recording and its applications. Participants will be presented with technical and aesthetic implications of shooting in different Log & Raw modes, and discussions will be part theory and part practical application. We will…
