Kodak Master Class Series: Shooting For Realism with Allen Daviau, ASC and Sacha Vierny
Kodak Master Class Series
This unique series, sponsored by the Kodak Worldwide Student Program, features nine of the world's finest cinematographers sharing their wealth of experience in a workshop setting, as they guide you through a series of professional lighting problems both in the studio and on location. 3-D computer animations are used to vividly illustrate solutions.
Shooting For Realism With Allen Daviau, ASC & Sacha Vierny
Allen Daviau (E.T., The Color Purple, Empire Of The Sun) and Sacha Vierny (Hiroshima mon Amour; The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, Prospero's Books) are given the same script and set. Daviau creates a series of intricate setups, clearly explaining each problem he encounters and the solutions he finds by using filters, lights and F-stops changes. Vierny experiments with a simple and elegant camera move that encompasses much of the action but presents him with a new challenge: hiding the dolly track. Computer graphics of the lighting setups as well as side-by-side comparisons of the finished scenes help you to better understand the techniques and appreciate the results.
