Join Nick Higgins as he takes a small group of 14 filmmakers through a hands-on intensive that will cover the camera & lighting choices behind the academy award winning OJ: MADE IN AMERICA.
You’ll get to work with the same camera and lighting package Nick used on OJ (which had to fit in the trunk of a compact SUV!). Nick will share how to make the most of the gear you have, how to select the best locations, and his A-to-Z steps for interview lighting. Nick will also simulate scenarios he faced where with no time AND no light – and show how you can still get a great shot!
In addition, Nick will also cover the equipment choices and creative thought process to successfully capture dramatic verite scenes. How do you get people to act like you are not there? How do you know you have what the director came for? Participants will dissect key scenes that Nick has shot from recently theatrically released documentaries and share the key lessons learned.
Take this unique opportunity to work with and learn from an experienced Director of Photography, and put his techniques to use on your next project.
