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 Tungsten and H.M.I Fresnels, with John Gresch from Arri Lighting. Learn how to sculpt your frame, light the actors properly and dramatically and throw shadows on parts of the background that you don't like. The information applies to most lighting systems, not just the featured Arri. Teaches: Changing lenses, changing bulbs, attaching Softboxes, using snoots, safety, spotting/flooding & selecting the proper light kit.
