Studio Lighting Takes Center Stage
Lighting for a studio production means so many things depending on the scope of your production. The first question you should ask yourself is what is the scope of your production? Is it going to be live or recorded? Will you be asked to light a talk show with an audience, or maybe something even more elaborate? Maybe you will be asked to light a commercial or a dramatic production. Great lighting can add depth and will set the emotional tone for every production. The question then is what do you want your lighting to convey emotionally to the audience? Here is a good example. Think how theatre directors use pools of light to draw the audiences’ attention to those spots on the stage. Your eyes have to go there right? But hold on to that thought and we will get back to it and a great use of dramatic lighting example later.

4 Common Problems on Set – and How to Fix Them
Here's something you're going to learn in film if you haven't already: NOTHING goes as planned. If things go 80% according to plan, you may just be working in a big-budget Hollywood studio! Or not; things don't go as planned for the "big dogs" either — consider Apocalypse Now. I work with many productions in South Florida with Moving Picture Rental — and if anywhere is unpredictable, it's Florida. Here are some things I've learned along the way.

The Essential Movie Equipment List for Getting Great Moving Shots on Your Next Project
Don’t wait until post-production to solve problems that should be addressed in pre-production. Hasty planning can often result in expensive reshoots. Making sure you have the right gear on-set can save you precious time and money.

But when you’re planning your movie equipment rental, it’s essential to consider the accessories that will complement such gear.

Getting Shut Down by Coronavirus
Thursday, March 19th - It was a rainy evening in downtown Los Angeles and we were setting up for Day 2 of Production on my new TV show Limited Edition. I had spent the past 15 months getting to this point; writing, securing funding, casting, location scouting, rehearsing, shot listing. I had successfully grown my commercial company Vitascope Arts into a six-figure business over the course of only a few years but this was going to be my first big step into creating fully produced original content, completely in-house. I had a lot riding on the show and I was more prepared for this project than anything I had ever done in my life. On this Thursday, most of the state had already been ordered to begin social distancing, to stay home, and all large gatherings had been banned. We were on set working, payroll had been financed, equipment had been paid for, insurance covered, locations booked, yet we all knew our production could be shut down at any moment. And then, just like that, one of my crew members scrolled their phone and announced “The Mayor just shut down all of Los Angeles. We have until midnight.” Full lockdown. It was a surreal feeling. Not only would the production have to shut down indefinitely but we weren’t even supposed to be outside of our homes. Everything was immediately put into perspective and the world would be changed forever. Let’s go back a few months.
