Respect The Process is a filmmaking podcast. Commercials & advertising, indie films, and other stuff I find creatively interesting. 

Feb 6, 2015

Veteran Gaffer Pat Grosswendt has taught me so much about lighting. We've made dozens of commercials together. (Click his name for credits like "Cabin Boy, "Gosford Park" & "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") Have a listen and you will learn the history, the mindset and key technical aspects of being the one on set that shapes the light. Pat gives his take on the changes in the technology, but explains how the it's still the story that effects the lighting approach the most, regardless of the toys.

Enjoy his fun tips too, like dumpster diving for diffusion, or use bubble wrap.

Just a few tickets left!! February 10th at 6pm West Coast (9pm East Coast), I'll be doing my live presentation on being a director of tv commercials. Buy your tickets now for February 10th at 6pm West Coast, on "Confessions of a Commercial Filmmaker". Live Q&A. It will sell out.
