Script To Screen: A Cinematographer’s Guidebook walks you through how Shane Hurlbut, ASC preps his projects. Using the film Deadfall as a reference, Shane demonstrates the challenges of your location, like constantly changing light.
This is a masterclass in cinematography prep. Starting with the location and tech scout, you’ll learn what to look for in a location, how to prep for a scout, what to include in your scouting kit, and how you collaborate with the director for the blocking process.
Next, you’ll find how to emulate the late afternoon light and control sunlight for interiors while casting that delicate dusk quality. Then, Shane explains when to go for the close-up and how to block, break rules, and unite your team to deliver your project from script to screen!
