San Francisco and New York City are essentially roadmaps of instantly recognizable movie locations. The blogosphere is riddled with sites dedicated entirely to cataloging street intersections, seemingly inconspicuous doorways, and iconic spots like the Mrs. Doubtfire house and Katz’s delicatessen. In these two popular film hubs it’s pretty hardpressed to find a place that hasn’t already been found. We’ve collected some spaces found on the creative online marketplace, Splacer. These places fit the bill for production worthiness, but come without the baggage of productions past.
During the COVID-19 shutdown, most productions stopped or went on indefinite hold. I don't know anyone who hasn't lost work or been affected in some way due to the pandemic. Hundreds of thousands of jobs in the film industry were put at serious risk. But as things continued to drag on, content still needed to be made. It just had to change shape a bit.

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.

But hold on to that thought and we will get back to it and a great use of dramatic lighting example later.
