I want to share one of the most inspiring stories of my student, Vlad. Vlad lives in Qatar, he moved there from Ukraine. Shooting different video content in Qatar, Vlad set out to improve his skills in working with light in order to get into the world of film and TV production. He came to me.
Once on my course, one of my homework task was to find an interesting and spacious place in order to work out the character’s universe with the help of props and the atmosphere of the room. Thus, Vlad ended up in a local film studio with a request to shoot this homework. Why not?
On this shooting, Vlad put his maximum effort and patience into his homework. And know what? The studio producer watched the homework footage and invited Vlad to work as a cameraman on the TV series. This is how Vlad got into the world of cinema.
A few months later, Guy Ritchie flew to Qatar with his film crew, and unfortunately a member of the camera crew department got ill with Covid. Guy Ritchie asked the producer of the same studio where Vlad worked to find a replacement for the camera crew department. This replacement was Vlad. Thus, Vlad filmed his first film project in Qatar and Turkey with the team of Guy Ritchie. It was 2020!

You need light sources! When I started my light training, I didn’t have the money to work with expensive equipment, so I used the cheapest lighting sources for my videos. I offer you three solutions to this problem.
1. The first, if you have the opportunity, use all possible and available light sources that your budget allows. We are talking about the rental of lighting sources and grip system.
2. The second way is to get some of the cheapest 500-1000W tungsten “halogen work light” with dimmer. This power will be enough to work on medium and wide shots.
3. The third way is buying a lighting source. And here I can advise you very cool LED sources of the Apurture, Godox, Nanlite brands.
Also, you can practice all materials with natural light sources. The sun is very cool and free light source.
For practical examples of this course, I use devices such as: ACE 650W, Godox 300VL, Godox 150W, Arri 1200w
