The Gear Guide is an introduction to filmmaking technology taught by the people who make the most popular, longest lasting gear. It's meant to bring you in contact with the gear before you can physically work with it. Imagine coming to Los Angeles, and having the benefit of meeting privately with the presidents and VPs of companies like Arri, Matthews Studio Equipment (MSE Grip), Kino Flo, Manfrotto (Bogen) and Schneider Optics. Imagine how much more prepared you will be to use their products once you get on the set of your next production. Your mind will be free to focus on creativity and communication, not learning new technical jargon. That's the purpose of the Gear Guide. It also keeps you informed on the latest gear, techniques, and tips on staying ahead in the Film and Video Industry. The Gear Guide module teaches how to use all the Camera and Lighting gear to make movies successfully and get the most out of the gear you already own. Each program focuses on specific gear and techniques. Focuses on Gels and Lighting Modifiers with Joel Svendsen from Rosco Gels. Pro crew rely on color gels for correcting instruments or creating a mood. But it's complex. Which type of gel do you use? How much color temperature correction is necessary? Do you match an HMI instrument with the window or the other tungsten instruments? How does gelling an instrument differ from Digital HD to Film? How do you safely use gels? What options are there in color and and mood? Both Straw and Amber gels cause a mathematical warming shift in the color temperature, so why are there two different types? Teaches: Correction Gels, Film vs. Video Intensities, Color Effect Gels, Modifiers for Stage Lights, Daylight Balance Gels, Tungsten Balance Gels and much more.
