New England’s leading audio and video equipment provider, Talamas Broadcast Equipment, will host a series of three full-day workshops for lighting directors, cinematographers and other film and TV production professionals on how to use the latest lighting techniques and equipment to produce superior cinematic results in a motion picture.

The complimentary workshops will be held from 9am to 4pm on three Saturdays – July 17, July 24 and July 31 – and can be attended as a complete series (recommended) or as individual workshops. All workshops will take place at Talamas’ main facility at 145 California Street in Newton, MA 02458. Complimentary light lunch and beverages will be provided.

Leading the workshops will be lighting designer and gaffer Guy Holt, owner of ScreenLighting & Grip of Dedham, Mass. Holt has served as a lighting director, gaffer, set electrician and generator operator on numerous feature films, commercials and television productions. He is a skilled and experienced presenter on the topics of harmonics, power generation and basic to advanced lighting techniques.

Saturday, July 17 - Electronic Cinematography
Imaging technology continues to evolve rapidly, but the principles of cinematography remain the same. This workshop teaches the fundamental principles of cinematography and how to apply them to any recording medium.

Topics covered include:
• How to conduct a camera test;
• Comparative analysis of the most popular cameras;
• How to determine the “ASA/ISO” of your camera;
• How to use Incident & Reflective Light Meters, and Waveform Monitors;
• How to calibrate and use a hand held light meter with a HD Camera.

Introduction to exposure principles such as the “Characteristic Curve,” “Key Tone,” “Contrast Range,” “Latitude,” “Exposure Knee,” & “Shoulder.”
Using these principles, this class will culminate with the lighting of a dramatic scene with the most powerful production tool you can possess - your “mind’s eye.”

Saturday, July 24 - Lighting for HD Cinema
Picking up where Workshop #1 left off, this workshop will execute the lighting design developed at the end of the first workshop. In the course of lighting the scene this workshop will cover different types of lighting instruments and grip equipment and associated techniques.

Topics covered include:
• Introduction to Quartz, Fluorescent, LED, & HMI lights;
• Introduction to Color Temperature and the Kelvin Scale;
• Power Distribution, Lighting Loads, & how to power 2.5/4k HMIs off of wall receptacles;
• Basic Three Point Lighting with Key, Fill, & Back Lights;
• Advanced Lighting with Kickers, Liners, Half and Reverse Keys;
• Three dimensional lighting for 3-D Video.

Saturday, July 31 - Advanced Lighting for HD Cinema
This workshop will dig deeper into subjects introduced in Workshop #2: “Lighting for HD Cinema” as well as introduce more advanced electrical principles regarding power generation as they relate to HMI, LED, & Fluorescent light sources.

Topics covered include:
• Introduction to the electrical concepts of “True Power”, “Apparent Power” & “Power Factor”
• Introduction to Switch Mode Power, Harmonics, Leading & Lagging Power Factors;
• Introduction to Portable Generators;
• Balancing Loads, Line Loss, & Voltage Waveform Distortion;
• Inverter Generators, Power Factor Correction, & the New Math of Low Line Noise;
• Using these principles, this class will culminate with the demonstration of how to operate larger, or more smaller, lights on a portable generator than has ever been possible before. Plus, how to not pick up the sound of portable generators in audio tracks.

Note: To prepare for this class it is strongly recommended that participants read “Portable Generators in Motion Picture Production” .
