Learn how to master a compelling one-shot sequence
to deliver an emotional impact

Blocking, Lighting, and Composition: A Casa Tutti Bene is a masterclass in conceptualizing a one-shot sequence from action, camera composition, and managing the light around mobile actors.

Blocking is one of the most crucial skills a filmmaker should understand and Shane Hurlbut, ASC pulls from 30+ years of experience to master this concept. Shane guides you through his process of breaking down scenes from the film A Casa Tutti Bene (There’s No Place Like Home) into keyframe moments and shows how they unfold into a single seamless “oner.” This process involves systematically maneuvering the camera, controlling light, and directing actors in a way that will deliver an emotional impact.
