Shooting & lighting for HDV have wanted to put these little video tutorial up for some time. These videos were shot back in 2008 for a film called "First War for the West". As we were shooting on the Sony Z1, we attempted to get the elusive film look with this 1/3inch chip camera. For this we shot at a low f/stop and lit the sets with low wattage lights, shooting much of it in the telephoto range of the lens to get as much DOF as possible. At this time film makers were after the elusive depth of field and "film look". In these videos I hope to show how we shot a no budget doco-history drama with lighting that you can get from the local hardware store.
