4 Simple Cinematic Lighting Setups for Filmmakers


Effective lighting doesn’t have to be complex; it just has to serve the story. In the following video, Chase Kubasiak, from Zacuto, shows four simple cinematic lighting looks and how they were created. The video covers popular sci-fi, noir, romance, and horror looks, with Kubasiak providing a detailed breakdown of the techniques and equipment used for each. Throughout the process, you’ll learn some simple, yet effective, solutions that can be applied to a variety of lighting scenarios. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at BandH.com.




Nice tips. Would be even nicer if we could put the video player into a full-screen.

Thanks, Tony. There is actually a full-screen mode that you can access by clicking on the "button" at the bottom right of the video frame next to the volume adjustment. We also publish our video content onto YouTube and that will also allow you to watch at full screen size.  https://www.youtube.com/user/BHPhotoVideoProAudio
