What you'll need to make a film: Part 2 - Lighting

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

Lighting can make or break your film. Most people spend most of their time worrying about video and audio equipment without worrying about lighting. If the film is shot in poor lighting, there really isn’t much you can do in the editing room so you want to make sure you give lighting the attention it deserves.

There is a great DVD about lighting for about $75 and I strongly recommend it. It called “DV Enlightenment” and it is made by dvcreators.net (no I don’t work from them). I actually bought the DVD a while ago and it has wealth of knowledge about lighting. There DVD is great but I think their lighting kits are overpriced.

As in regards of where to buy lighting equipment, once again I would recommend Ebay. If you’re on a inde budget, you can find a decent set for about $600. Make sure you buy a reflector (for 3 point lighting) and you can get nice from the Ebay user amvona.com for around $40.

There is no point of repeating all the stuff on the DVD so please check it out InshAllah.
