I can’t remember the last time a week went by and someone didn’t send me a link to a video an orchestra. Initially, these were limited to larger budget groups but the onset of affordable 4k video in smartphones has opened the floodgates. But just because you have a tool, doesn’t mean you’re ready to use it and two areas where in-house videos tend to suffer are lighting and sound.
For most, the former is an easier nut to crack than the latter and to that end, I published an article at ArtsHacker that features a fantastic tutorial from film maker Steve DiCasa on one of the most important concepts you need to know: three-point lighting. In just 10 minutes, you’ll learn what you need to make your videos go from dingy to professional.
