Teaching my Lighting for the Moving Image course at FIT. The subject was the use of back lighting specifically this shot of Jessica Alba dancing in Sin City.
I am teaching my famous lighting for the moving image course again starting Thursday January 26. Everything that is important about color and light for film and video will be taught here in an exciting way while learning from the masters. Lecture and hands on.

This is not a series of photos. It is an imitation of two famous films mixing real actors with artists in the orignal producing a new video.
I will be teaching FRAMING THE SHOT at the Fashion Institute of Technology this fall
This course is an in-depth study of framing the overall content and the subject’s choreography for film and video art production. Using the frame both visually and conceptually as a building block for video production, the students will learn to construct their narrative space using composition, color, and light over time within a framed context. Students will explore various framing and composition techniques such as perspective, camera angle, micro/macro view transformation, placement of subject in the environment, subject juxtaposition, mixing of historical genres, fantasy and spectacle, natural phenomena and symbolism.
