March 13-14, 2021
The American Society of Cinematographers Specialist Online Master Class on shooting commercials and music videos is a two-day online seminar with live interactions and Q&A with some of the world’s top working cinematographers.

The planned curriculum will have two pre-recorded lighting demonstrations, selected commercials and music videos, live instruction and interactive discussion periods with ASC members. Topics to be covered will include lighting for automobiles, table-top and actors in commercials, as well as the creative aspects of music videos. The classes are designed to last about 6 hours per day, with each session starting at 8:00 AM Pacific Standard Time (11:00 AM New York; 4:00 PM London; 5:00 PM Berlin; 9:30 PM Mumbai; 12:00 AM Beijing).
