Great interview lighting is essential to any production. Regardless of your budget or what kind of camera you have, you can shoot the same excellent-looking interviews that you see on the best network news-magazine programs. You can shoot network quality with a light kit that costs less than $1500 to put together — if you know what to buy and how to use it.

With 20 chapters of detailed explanations, examples, tutorials, and tips, this DVD demonstrates how to get great results — without getting bogged down in jargon and unnecessary information. It will show you exactly what you need to have in your light kit, and then take you step-by-step through the process of choosing a location, setting up the lights, and solving common challenges in real-world situations — NOT in a studio.
