Workshop: Light The Night

October 11, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


LIGHTBULB GRIP & ELECTRIC is hosting an evening about Lighting for Night shoots for cinematographers and gaffers. One of the more challenging aspects of film, this is a must-have for your toolbox!

We’ll be led by Ari Rothschild, a DP with recent feature credits including Lust Life, Landing Up and Prom King, 2010 (Cinequest New Vision award 2017). His approach puts story first for rich and engaging visuals that feel alive and communicative. Ari has also color timed over thirty features including Bone Tomahawk, Always Shine, and Fort Tilden.

Drawing on experience from lighting on set and correction in post, Ari will demo a meter-based approach for lighting night scenes that feel right and still have healthy exposure. We will look at stills from No Country For Old Men and get into the specifics of ratio vs levels and just how dark to light for night.

Optional note: Please bring a LIGHT METER if you have one! (No worries if not). We’re happy to help you get your specific meter working and useable during the workshop part of the session. [No tools required though]

– Understand the basics of night lighting.
– Learn what setups work best for various lighting scenarios
– Get to try the skills out on real hardware with a teacher present.
– Have an opportunity to network with a group of working filmmakers in NYC!
LATENIGHTS @ LIGHTBULB is a weekly fillm seminar, lecture, and workshop series for filmmakers, by filmmakers. We teach because we believe that smarter filmmakers explore larger artistic horizons, become more engaged in the community, and become better customers!

DIRECTIONS: L train to Grand St, walk three blocks west. Or Q54/Q59 bus to Morgan Ave/Grand St stop. If you hit the smokestack or BP Station, you went too far. Look for our loading dock logo, and then head for the stairs under the trees!
