The gentleman whom many consider the forefather of the HDSLR short film revolution, Vincent Laforet, is featured in a new video on light metering as it applies to digital filmmakers.
Be sure to not miss this short video. It’s complete with some great moments taken from Laforet’s films and some informative behind the scenes footage taken on his Famous Footwear “Neighborhood” spot. Laforet himself speaks about the importance of light in any motion production, and how, if the lighting is bad, no matter the quality of any other production value or the caliber of the acting and screenplay, viewers’ attention will be diverted and the scene will fail.
Laforet points out the common language of light spoken on any film set, and how accurate metering by multiple crew members makes productions run smoothly. This is an informative piece whether you’re shooting your first HDSLR short or a full-length motion picture.
