    This is great for a large room and very helpful. How about lighting a
    small room where hiding the lights are a pain?

    Ever smash your thumb with a hammer? That’s as funny as this video you
    picked as winner. What a piece of crap…

    Indoor is all good, but I’d love to hear your wisdom on shooting in a
    forest at night with a cast of three and two LED lights. As I stupidly
    agreed to do this in two weeks, any help appreciated! (or even a link to
    something I can use).

    The original video looks better, like a good movie, the one with lights
    looks like cheesy american comedy.

    Ignoring all the comments below, I find the humor making it easier to
    learn. I have a huge sense of humor and if I remembered something funny
    when I learned something important then I won’t forget it. I learned a lot
    from the lighting videos you guys did. Keep it up! Also, I want that
    jacket. Where did you get it? :3

    I really dislike shows like this … Yall are more interested in trying to
    make a show then educating …. Nobody wants to see your face and you
    talking … keep everything focused on the subject at hand or come up with
    your own … Film radio show

    is this location on Shadow Creek lane in Oveido Florida, no? I used to live
    right across the street from UCF and this is the EXACT house layout

    I dont know if this question encompasses lighting entirely, but Ill ask
    anyways.

    With cheaper or entry level DSLR’s like the Canon t5i, what are some tricks
    to making them look more cinematic? Entry level DSLRs tend to look bright
    and cheap and are kind of off putting and glaring on first glance. I
    basically want our first short film to look decent but I dont want to spend
    a lot of $$

    Thumbs up if Ryan should teach us how to make a battle scene like 300 or
    Lord of the rings

    Use lightning in doors (extra) because in door lighting is defenitly not
    enough

    I’m not sure if it’s been explained in a previous episode, but it might be
    a good idea to explain the light setups. (key light, fill light, back light)
