Light and Shadow Boot Camp is a one-weekend, intensive, hands-on workshop for independent filmmakers who want to learn fast, simple and effective lighting techniques without a big budget or crew.

It focuses on sensible, easily applied skills to do a lighting set-up. Participants will quickly become adept at lighting real-world situations through demonstrations, Q&A's, and hands-on practices. You will learn the tips and tricks to creating polished and dynamic lighting that can set mood and capture an audience.

When it is your turn to make a movie, you must ask two questions:

1) "Where should I put the LIGHT?" A single strategically placed light can work the magic of four or five incorrectly placed lights.

2) "How to create SHADOW?" Anybody can switch on a light and flood a scene with light and make it flat and boring. But it is with shadows that you create shape, dimension, depth, and mood.
