CFAA FILMMAKERS MEETING
Tues., January 15th, 7pm
Seeing the Light!
This will be a fascinating evening entirely devoted to lighting for film and television. Since the membership covers a wide range of knowledge and expertise levels the presentation will contain elements to appeal to the entire spectrum. We'll begin by running through all the different types and technologies used for entertainment lighting with examples of most of them to show what they look like and where you might use them. Then we'll shift to showing the different lights in use with a simple subject so you can see what the effect is on the talent and the background, viewing these through a camera fed to a large monitor (the only real way to judge a light!) Then we'll have an interactive section where the audience can ask to see different combinations and, if they like, get hands on to experiment. Finally we'll wrap up with a Q and A session for anything missed that you are curious about or didn't quite understand. For most people this will be a rare opportunity to compare different lighting types side by side. We'll have flat panels, color changing lights, fluorescents, LEDs, an HMI, fresnels in different shapes and sizes.
Presenters will be Pete Challinger of Pacific Media Technologies, who works with two different lighting brands and Ken Parker of Parkerfilms in the Bay Area who has been doing production for may years and watched a number of lights come and go!
Filmmaker Aaron Leong will assist in the demonstration.

The CFAA's annual President's Award for 2018 goes to the Sacramento region's most indomitable 'force' in the local film and media community:
Sally is a formidable champion of all things film, and of making Sacramento an exciting hub of production. She has operated Forcier Casting for almost 20 years, coaching, advising and tirelessly giving of herself and her time to advocate for the growth of others in the local production community, and in making Sacramento a professionally recognized industry. In the last couple of years she has branched out to add full-time producing to her array of creative services and has already successfully co-produced a few major features films that were shot here at home, along with managing other commercial casting work and producing smaller indie projects - all while planning her wedding at the same time!
Sally's stated passion on her own website is "to be a part of the creative process on set, inspire and help others realize their dreams" - and I believe that we are a better community because of her doing just that.
