Shane Hurlbut’s Illumination Experience Cinematography Tour

shanehurlbutEditor’s Note: this is a guest blog post about Shane Hurlbut’s Illumination Experience Cinematography Tour, starting on September 14. I invited Shane and his peeps to write about the tour because I genuinely love the in-depth and thorough articles and education Shane has provided on his blog. This is not a paid article. (Although, as an industry insider I was invited to be a member of Shane’s Inner Circle a few months ago.) I never get paid to have posts like this on my blog; even though I am frequently offered payment for ads or paid posts. I only ever post content I believe will be valuable to the readers of this blog. If this tour is anything like the content he’s provided in the past, I have no doubt it will be extremely beneficial. Enjoy!

Shane’s rigorous feature film schedule has finally cleared enough to allow him to devote time to his other great passion, teaching. He has been trying to find time to conduct another class since his Boot Camp in 2010. The Boot Camp was so well received that several of the students from the 2010 class have already signed up for the Illumination Experience.

The Illumination Experience Cinematography Tour is an immersive, hands-on class that covers both cinematography and lighting. Shane will teach you how to design, develop, enhance, and implement the storytelling process with lighting and camera. You will learn how to determine which qualities of light to implement for any scene by utilizing script analysis, storyboard preparation, lighting schematics, and shot lists.

A few of the many benefits of attending the Illumination Experience Cinematography Tour:

  • Your skills will be more marketable
  • You will greatly benefit from the networking opportunities. You will meet filmmakers at every level – film students to high end Hollywood insiders
  • You will learn practical DIY techniques that you can use on any project no matter what your budget
  • You will get hands-on experience with the latest gear
