Eric Kress Lighting Workshop "Dual Close-Ups" by Benjamin B, edited by me



In 2012, I have had the pleasure to edit Eric Kress Lighting Workshop with Benjamin B. The workshop held by Gokinema and moderated by Benjamin B deals with dual close up. Eric Kress meticulously lights the two shots as well as go through with every decision he makes during the process. The footage recorded by Arri Alexa shows how every adjustment, touch, and choices made by the cinematographer affects the shots, the scene and the overall mise-en scene.

It took around 9 months to edit and finish this documentary as I and Benjamin were busy doing other projects. We collaborated online, sending each other our own edits, brainstorming and thinking for a clear and simple approach to document Eric Kress's approach to lighting. Needless to say, I am very proud of this collaboration.
