A Shot in the Dark: A Creative DIY Guide to Digital Video Lighting on (Almost) No Budget

The most significant contribution to film imagery is lighting. Lighting is the key to turning amateur footage into professional stories and presentation. A SHOT IN THE DARK: A CREATIVE DIY GUIDE TO DIGITAL VIDEO LIGHTING ON (ALMOST) NO BUDGET shows that good lighting doesn’t always require expensive or extensive Hollywood hardware. With a little creativity, ingenuity, and some elbow grease, you can create your own lighting arsenal to handle a multitude of situations. This book will show do-it-yourselfers how to create their own equipment and how best to use it. The first part of the book teaches you about the basics–the fundamentals of light, color, exposure, and electricity–that are the building blocks of lighting. You’ll discover what light is and how to control it. Once you have that foundation, the book will introduce tips, techniques, and hands-on projects that instruct you on how to create your own lighting tools from inexpensive, readily available resources. The only limit to what you can do is your imagination.


From the Author: Five Tips to Better Images

  • Never use auto exposure! Your exposure is your strongest brush in your photographic arsenal. Never allow a piece of hardware to tell you where to place your exposure. Evaluate the scene, evaluate the lighting levels, and make an educated decision based on what you want your audience to see.
  • Learn to control your lighting quality. Choosing the right quality of light for the right situations helps to refine your images considerably! Hard light, soft light, or a combination of the two: learn to use these tools to your advantage.
  • Position your lights according to the mood you want to convey. When it comes to lighting, it should rarely (if ever) be about ‘just enough light to shoot.’ Lighting creates a mood and helps tell a story. Whether it is a corporate interview or a dramatic scene, your light position helps the audience to experience the right mood.
  • Learn to see light. Photographic lighting doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s based on real-world experiences. Sometimes you want your light to be surreal and foreign, and sometimes you want it to be incredibly natural and not feel ‘lit’ at all. The best way to learn the differences is to study light in the natural world. Natural and artificial lighting in your everyday life will surprise you with how beautiful and memorable it can be. Learn to not take light for granted and to see it around you at all times.
  • The most important thing you do with lighting is to direct the audience’s attention to where you want it to be. What is most important in this shot or scene? Starting there will help dictate how you will add or subtract lighting to make sure the audience is seeing what you want them to see when you want them to see it.

Edit Better: Hollywood-Tested Strategies for Powerful Video Editing

Imagine pushing a magic button in your video editing software labeled “better”. Any project you edit turns out exactly how you planned, every single time. Your audience is absolutely spellbound, wiping tears from their eyes, laughing out loud, or sitting in stunned silence as they see the world in a different way for the first time.

Bad news: That button doesn’t exist. Good news: Edit Better shows you how to get there anyway.

Edit Better was made for video editors who consider themselves advanced hobbyists or growth-minded professionals, artists who know that the tools of editing matter far less than the knowledge of how to use those tools powerfully.

This audiobook does not illuminate the workings of Avid, Final Cut, or Premiere, and is not a meditation on film editing. What it is: a provocative, wide-ranging collection of strategies and tactics for the creative application of TV and video editing, no matter your editing tools.

Author Jeff Bartsch lays out both big-picture strategies and practical, boots-on-the-ground tactics for powerful communication. Going far beyond mere button-pushing, Jeff good-naturedly blends communication theory, marketing, behavioral psychology, neuroscience, and nuts-and-bolts details of editing application from years of experience in Hollywood, the storytelling capital of the world.

Film and Video Editing Theory: How Editing Creates Meaning

Film and Video Editing Theory offers an accessible, introductory guide to the practices used to create meaning through editing.

The book is grounded in the unity of theory and practice, looking beyond technical proficiency in a specific software to explain to readers how and why certain cuts work or don’t work.

    The Art of the Documentary: Fifteen Conversations with Leading Directors, Cinematographers, Editors, and Producers (2nd Edition) (Digital Video & Audio Editing Courses)

    Documentary filmmaking is a powerful and vital element to our society,  and those who are responsible for bringing real stories and issues to a creative medium often have an uncanny ability to make a deep connection to us with their art. Legendary directors and cinematographers such as the Maysles brothers, D.A. Pennabaker & Chris Hegedus, Errol Morris, or Ken Burns have vividly made their marks in recent decades and continue to inspire those who enter the field. Inexpensive video camera equipment and video editing software have helped fuel a new wave of truth-tellers, bringing the tools of the craft within reach of amateurs and students, as well as independent journalists and filmmakers on a budget.

    In The Art of the Documentary, the directors, editors, cinematographers, and producers behind today’s most thought-provoking nonfiction films reveal the thought processes, methods, and collaborations that have guided their efforts- from project conception to developing, producing, shooting, editing, and releasing some of the finest documentary films of recent decades.

    This richly illustrated volume, which will appeal to professional and aspiring filmmakers, as well as documentary enthusiasts, features conversations with directors, cinematographers, editors, and producers, including Ken Burns (The Civil War, Jazz, Baseball), director/cinematographer D A Pennebaker (Dont Look Back, The War Room), director/cinematographer Albert Maysles (Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens), director Errol Morris (The Fog of War, The Thin Blue Line), director Chris Hegedus (Startup.com, Down from the Mountain), editor Larry Silk (Pumping Iron, Wild Man Blues), cinematographer Buddy Squires (The Civil War, Ram Dass, Fierce Grace), director/producer Lauren Lazin (Tupac: Resurrection, Journey of Dr. Dre), editor/director Paula Heredia (The Vagina Monologues, In Memoriam: New York City, 9/11/01), director/cinematographer Kirsten Johnson (Fahrenheit 9/11, Innocent Until Proven Guilty), editor Geof Bartz (Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth, He’s Having a Baby), Sheila Nevins, President of HBO Documentaries and HBO Family, Alison Bourke, executive producer for IFC, Cara Mertes, executive producer at PBS for the POV series, Frazer Pennebaker, producer. And with contributions by: Carol Dysinger, film editor and professor, NYU Film School, and Haskell Wexler, cinematographer.

    A Note About the Second Edition:

    In this edition of the book, we have included the original full interviews of the producers that did not appear in the first edition. Those producers include Sheila Nevins, Lauren Lazin, Alison Palmer Bourke, Cara Mertes, and Frazer Pennebaker. The interviews of the directors, cinematographers and editors have been left in tact and are included as they appeared in the first edition. The filmographies of each interviewee have been updated to include recent works.

    HARNESS THE EMOTIONAL FORCE OF AUDIO
    GET INTERVIEW SUBJECTS TO SPEAK IN COMPLETE SENTENCES

    GROW A BULLETPROOF CAREER

    Veteran cameraman and producer Dave Lent distills forty years of know-how–shooting news, documentaries, sports, business and entertainment–into a set of simple, easy-tograsp principles.
