EVENT DESCRIPTION:

During this seminar, Matthew will dive into the evolution of dramatic lighting styles over the course of cinema history, from German Expressionism and Film Noir up through modern techniques that rely on soft sources and LEDs. We’ll also examine techniques that show how lighting enhances your character’s journey, and dispel the insidious myth that “with modern cameras, you don’t even need to light”. Specific topics will include creative control of shadows and darkness within the frame, and how to use complementary colors to make your movie pop. 

Cinematographer Matthew Irving has lensed an eclectic slate of more than thirty feature films in almost every genre, having built a reputation for his extensive pre-production process, light-hearted nature on set, and passion for film history. Five of his features have premiered at Sundance, including OUTLAWS AND ANGELS, which was shot Spaghetti-Western style on 2-perf 35mm and named one of Variety’s “21 Best Films of Sundance 2016”. Irving's hit theatrical releases WAITRESS (adapted into the 2016 Tony-nominated Broadway musical) and WAITING (starring Ryan Reynolds) both cracked the Box Office “Top Ten.”
