The VES Education Committee Presents

Practical Lighting For CG Artists

Free To VES Members, All Others $25

Bob Primes, ASC will lead this fifth incarnation of the wildly popular and informative one-day seminar geared toward helping digital artists develop the sensibilities and sensitivities of a cinematographer. Please bring the highest quality digital camera that you can in order to record some interesting natural light during the lunch break. You'll discover which believable light sources could create the desired mood and illuminate the drama. Then you'll learn how to simulate that source based on the study of its properties. The seminar will culminate with dividing into groups and lighting scenes with real lights.

Robert Primes, ASC is a pioneer in digital cinematography, having directed the very first progressive scan production, THEO PLAYS CHOPIN in 1998 and won the 1st ASC cinematography award ever given to a digital production (MDs, in 2003).  He received cinematography Emmys for MY ANTONIA and FELICITY and has six other cinematography nominations.  His feature cinematography credits include BAADASSSSS! with Mario van Peebles, BIRD ON A WIRE with Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn, THE HARD WAY with James Woods and Michael J. Fox, MONEY TALKS with Charlie Sheen and Chris Tucker, A MURDER OF CROWS with Cuba Gooding Jr. and ASPEN EXTREME. His television series credits include THIRTYSOMETHING, QUANTUM LEAP, FELICITY, YOUNG AMERICANS, MDs, NIGHT STALKER and LAS VEGAS.  He currently serves as Senior Lecturer on the cinematography faculty of the American Film Institute.
