    Why Buy this Video?
    At least 95% of the time a video crew breaks out the light kit, it's to shoot an interview or some other kind of head shot. If you can plan, setup, and light nice looking interviews, that's just about all the lighting know-how most people will ever need.
    Not so long ago people could get away with just putting up a couple of umbrella lights and calling it good. But, times have changed, and the standards for interview lighting have risen sharply in recent years. It doesn't matter whether you're shooting for a major network news magazine, a live shot, a documentary, local TV news, or even a corporate video with your CEO - today's audiences have come to expect interviews to look a lot better than they did in the past.
    And, there's no reason why they shouldn't look great, because shooting a good interview instead of a mediocre interview barely takes any extra effort. But the first thing you need to understand is that good interview lighting doesn't have very much to do with the equipment. You know the old saying that, it's not the tools you have, it's how you use them. Well, that certainly applies to good lighting.
    With 20 chapters of detailed explanations, examples, tutorials, and tips, this DVD demonstrates how to get great results -- without getting bogged down in jargon and unnecessary information. It will show you exactly what you need to have in your light kit, and then take you step-by-step through the process of choosing a location, setting up the lights, and solving common challenges in real-world situations -- NOT in a studio.
