Film from 1967 till1994
Video from 1984 till now
Very clear and interesting video. Congratulations. A young film-maker must understand the use of a lightmeter to set the lights. I'd like to point out a technical detail. The "so called" exposure tools that you can find on DSLRs , video cameras and monitors, such as zebra, false color, waveform, histogram, etc. don't give you any indication about the exposure stop. They only tell you what part of the picture is over or under exposed or fits in the range of correct exposition. You need to have a reference (such as a grey card or a caucasian skin) in the frame to come to an f. stop. When I shoot an interview of a white person, I rely on the zebra (70% with some bars on the most lit part of the face, generally the forehead). If you have no reference, it's impossible. For exemple, a landscape without sky, on a cloudy day. If you use the wave form, you can be sure that your footage will be OK after grading (especially if you are shooting raw). But it will be impossible to determine the correct stop. The only way is to use a lightmeter and it can be the "auto iris" of the camera that works as a reflected lightmeter. If you can't use the "auto iris" (with manual cine lenses for example), there is no other way than the lightmeter.
