Focus on Film Learning Objective/Kaupapa: To analyse specified aspects of film Value…. respect and INNOVATION, ENQUIRY AND CURIOSITY Competancy….THINKING DO NOW/ Nā Mahi: Look at the shots around the room. Using the list of terms name the lighting effects used in each. What effects might the lighting have? Why?
LIGHTING TERMINOLOGY ambient light = the general light surrounding the subject, filling in the shadows, generally of a soft, low- contrast quality and often from sources of light reflecting off objects in the space. accent light = an instrument that focuses attention on an area. backlight = an instrument positioned directly behind and above the subject diffusion = material used in front of lighting fixtures to soften the light they produce eye light = a small instrument positioned to create a glint in the subject’s eye. fill light = soft light used to reduce the darkness of the shadow areas. gel = a transparent, colored plastic sheet – usually polyethylene – used to change the color of light. In early theater the sheets were made of colored gelatin glow light = a weak light source that creates a bit of a glow on the actor’s face. hot spot = a very bright area in the scene, caused by excessive light or a strong reflection key light = the main source used to light a subject. Its direction and amount relative to fill light establishes the mood of the illumination. kicker = a light positioned behind the subject and off to the side opposite the key. low key = lighting style in which the majority of a frame is composed of dark areas. Usually enhanced by dark costumes and sets. spot = a beam focused into a narrow, relatively strong beam of light. top light = a light that shines directly down on the subject
