LIGHTING TECHNIQUES FOR FILM

Join lighting designers extraordinaire Steve Spallone and Jerry Coatney as they reveal the secret to making your film look great by using little-known lighting design techniques.

STEVE SPALLONE has been a lighting professional for Motion Pictures and commercials for a few clicks over three decades. Using a mix of time tested techniques and the latest new lighting technology, Steve looks for innovative ways to create effects and naturalistic lighting that add production value while minimizing setup time. He has had the good fortune to work with many inspiring directors and very talented DP’s, all of which have helped him to hone his own unique lighting style.

JERRY COATNEY began lighting for live stage shows in the early 1980s. He worked for Kennedy Maxwell Motion Pictures lighting for 35mm film. From 1993 until 2003, Jerry worked as a freelance lighting designer working on both film and video projects. In 2003, Jerry started The Smoky Mtn Grip and Lighting Co. and continues to work as a gaffer today.
