Lighting and Rendering 1

Instruction covers creating renders that enhance visual storytelling through lighting, techniques to light characters, products, exterior and interior environments, and lighting for live action footage. Classes include a mixture of weekly lighting demonstrations, discussions of cinematic approaches using industry standard methods, project critiques, and industry tips. Students will explore various styles of lighting through homework assignments and work towards completing a polished final project for review.
