Welcome to the Light & Shadow Workshop Group.

Our mission is to share with the New York independent film community the knowledge and practical skills needed to excel in the art of lighting and cinematography.

When it is your turn to make a movie, you must ask two questions:

1) "Where should I put the LIGHT?" A single strategically placed light can work the magic of four or five incorrectly placed lights.

2) "How to create SHADOW?" Anybody can switch on a light and flood a scene with light and make it flat and boring. But it is with shadows that you create shape, dimension, depth, and mood.

Light and Shadow Boot Camp is a one-weekend, intensive, hands-on workshop for independent filmmakers and students who want to learn fast, simple and effective lighting techniques without a big-studio budget.

It focuses on sensible, easily applied skills to do a lighting set-up. Participants will quickly become adept at lighting real-world situations through demonstrations, Q&A's, and hands-on experience. You will learn the tips and tricks to creating polished and dynamic lighting that can set mood and capture an audience.

In other words, we won't be lighting the Starship Enterprise. But rather, a human drama.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
