PLEASE NOTE: this Bay Area Video Lighting course is now taught ONLINE using zoom and accessible everywhere!


Lighting for video is unlike lighting for photography, film, theater or game design. This workshop over Zoom introduces you to professional lighting techniques and equipment specific to video. Setting up a scene for lighting (or even shooting documentary footage in the field) can make a subject go from flat and uninteresting to vibrant and powerful. Your instructor, Ben Ferrer, is a director and cinematographer, having worked on commercials, documentaries, narrative films and corporate communication. Lighting is his passion and he’s willing to share everything he knows! This online class will cover amps, attitude, and technique. Learn to reduce lighting set-ups to their fundamentals, revealing the structure that style is built upon. This is one of the most game-changing classes you will ever enroll in, especially if you’re serious about filmmaking, because of Ben’s willingness to share best practices and trade secrets.


Topics include:

  • Quality of light and creating depth
  • Lighting for different styles and situations
  • Working with available light for best results
