Part of Lesson Plan: Three-Point Lighting System
Activity Overview / Details
In order to assess each student's mastery of the subject, this simple video assignment will allow the students to do exactly what is taught within this lesson: to set-up and use the three-point lighting system in a video production.
Students are put into production groups of three. Each group is to produce a video demonstrating the proper practice of the lighting system. Students are expected to follow these basic principles of proper video lighting in future assignments.
(The video assignment is the exactly the same thing demonstrated by the teacher and student volunteers previously.)
Once into groups, the teacher hands out the assignment sheet, and shows a video example of the video assignment produced by former students, and the 4-point lighting video Rubric to make sure the students are aware of how their assignments will be assessed.
Before the students break-into their groups to begin production, the teacher hands-out the Lighting jobs terminology document and discusses the various roles and jobs for lighting in film.
