Analysis Reflection – #5
Lecture 7 Lighting: What was covered? Do you think the content is relevant to your project? And why?
The familiar conventions of key and fill lighting were explained. It’s important to know what kind of lighting we need to highlight actors. Totally relevant no question. Also relevant to our film are the safety concerns surrounding lighting equipment. You could go into a shoot and with no briefing on safety, injure yourself or another person quite seriously.
Select from one of the readings from week 5, 6 or 7 and describe two points that you have taken from it. Points that excite you, something that was completely new to you.
The week 6 reading by Rabiger was like a bible for me to help understand what roles everybody needs to abide by. I know that this group project is a little more lenient when sticking to roles but its really important for everybody in the crew to understand what their responsibilities are especially when we only have a day to shoot. It was pretty funny reading about what to be wary of when choosing a crew member because we didn’t get to choose our group members. And it makes me realise how woefully unprepared we were for our shoot.
