This short master-class gives you everything you need to know about lighting for a self-shooter, video-journalist or self-shoot producer.

Not only do we explore the different kind of lights available, we consider, weight, size and energy useage.

We look at colour temperature, spotting and flooding and how to light interviews and products better to give you a more polished film.

With 3d animations we explore the priniciple of three-point-lighting and how to apply that technique to all shooting situations, including those were you may want to mix, or use, natural light.


Anyone working as a video journalist, self shoot producer, or shoot-edit wanting to improve their interviews and lighting.


The course will take you through the best lights for each job, so at this stage you don't need anything.


Course enrollees will gain a thorough understanding of three point lighting, types of lights, colour temperature.

This course fits perfectly with any of the filmmaking master-classes listed here at the Dean Arnett Video School.
