Chatsworth, Calif. (June 6, 2016) – Litepanels®, an innovator in LED lighting solutions for the film, photographic and broadcast industries and a Vitec Videocom brand, is pleased to offer an exclusive set of Master Classes hosted in partnership with Barbizon Lighting Company. The Master Classes will be led by renowned lighting expert and Litepanels co-founder, Pat Grosswendt, and provide hands-on training and instruction on the latest lighting technology and techniques.
“We are very excited to partner with Litepanels for this series of master classes. I’ve sat in on Pat’s classes before, and they are incredibly informative regardless of if you’re just starting out, or are a seasoned industry veteran. This is a great opportunity to get free hands-on training from one of the industry’s best,” said Danny Quiles, Barbizon.
Grosswendt, who has over 35 years of lighting experience and has worked sets such as It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Practical Magic, and The Crucible, will use a camera, monitor, and on-screen talent to provide a practical demonstration of five-point, three-point, two-point and one-point lighting.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask Grosswendt to demonstrate “how would I light?” scenarios and ask other questions.
