Expanded 2nd Edition: POWERHOUSE 3-PACK now includes:

1) LIGHT LIKE A PRO, the original (22-minute) crash course for Lighting Technicians. LIGHT LIKE A PRO goes into the studio, outdoors and 3D graphics animations to give clear and vivid examples and explanations of universally useful lighting principles. This is the tutorial that can save your next video, film or photograph! These are the "keys" to lighting that produce good images in nearly any situation. Don't guess at lighting, master it and give your viewers a great visual experience.

2) LIGHTING FOR INTERVIEWS. (16 minutes.) Solid, professional lighting for interviews and talking heads is not difficult if you know some basic principles and methods. This tutorial goes step-by-step through a typical interior location interview setup to show you the process and results in detail. Then you see a "quick" interview setup that can be done in seconds with good results. Finally, you see alterations in the basic setup to produce masculine, feminine, dramatic and conservative interview lighting styles.

3) LIGHTING FOR CHROMA KEY. (12 minutes.) Chroma Key (Green Screen) image compositing is a vital tool that enables small-scale production to get a "bigger" look with more visual interest on a limited budget, but it presents special challenges. This step-by-step chroma key demonstration and explanations are designed to eliminate the common problems with chroma key lighting and compositing.

Learn how to give your images the snap, sizzle and dreaminess of the pros.
These demonstrations de-mystify the art and craft of lighting for all media.

This is the video that can save YOUR next video, film or photograph!

"I am impressed with Jerry Day’s ability to pack in so much useful information per minute. His direct, no-nonsense style leads the neophyte movie maker on a fascinating journey on the nature of light and how to control it to bring out the most emotional value in any scene. What I like most is that he did not talk down or talk over the heads of the viewers. His fast-paced style forces the audience to pay attention so they can absorb all of the tips, tricks, and applications. His directness speaks to his believability and gives authority to the smallest detail."
- Tony Luna, Instructor, Art Center College of Design
