Master class with Graham Ehlers Sheldon
Learn how to approach any project with any lighting kit and how the business of making art is just as important as the content in this four-hour lighting, optics, filtration and producing master class with SIGMA cinema pro Graham Ehlers Sheldon, BA’09.
Sheldon, an Emmy-winning producer and director of photography, will focus on the critical building blocks of interior cinematic lighting for the camera. He will also share what he’s learned from a decade in the business, both as a producer of narrative scripts (“The Good Catholic,” “Dry Blood”) and as a DP working on projects for Warner Brothers, NBC, VICE, TLC, iTV, Disney, HGTV, Discovery, Legendary Entertainment, Dell, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts.
