Gundestrup's "Class on Demand 'Legends' Series" courses explore the process of lighting a green screen, as well as the lighting principles used every day by industry technicians. "Green Screen Lighting" depicts the importance of light separation between the green screen and talent, and shows how to light - from a small kit up to six or more lights - for custom looks and lighting in confined spaces. Gundestrup also covers typical green screen and talent lighting issues and how to address them.
"Introduction to Lighting for Film & Video" is a great reference tool for both lighting beginners and seasoned professionals. The 'Legends' training covers topics ranging from lighting instruments and 3-point lighting, both on set and in practical locations, to controlling light, color correction, and lighting in layers.
NEW - Final Cut Tutorial Legend Larry Jordan Current Class on Demand Legend Larry Jordan is also adding new training to the 'Legends' curriculum. The new Final Cut Tutorial explores file management and workflows, working with multiple video formats, and 3D space in three separate parts.
Designed as an introduction to file management and workflow in Final Cut Pro, "Final Cut Workflow and Media Management" discusses the file handling, optimizing, managing, and querying features of the program. "Managing Projects with Multiple Video Formats" provides valuable insight into why so many different formats exist and provides a series of road-maps that users can navigate to simplify the editing process.
