FilmRiot Shows You How to Light Moving Subjects in Multiple Spaces While Filming
FilmRiot has been quietly working on a series of educational behind the scenes videos over the last few months, and I think this one is definitely worth a mention (avoid the random skydiving tangent at 6:00). Aimed at beginner and intermediate videographers, this short video will walk us through some techniques for lighting people as they move through multiple rooms.
A lot gets touched on here: where to place your lights, where and how to bounce your lights effectively, and how to keep light on your subject as they move around a scene. While it may be a re-hash for the experts out there, it’s definitely worth watching if you’re interested in taking your videos from looking like they were shot on your parent’s handicam for a school project to a more professional and watchable product.
