For LED and Green Screen

Led by seasoned veteran and industry expert, Scott Rosekrans, you'll embark on a journey that takes you from the foundations of set preparation to the intricacies of on-set cinematography.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
Set Preparation (VAD)
We'll kick things off with set design and set scanning, where we blend theory with practice. You'll learn scene setup, modeling tools, bridge, and Art Dept props.
Then we'll dive into lighting techniques — everything from pre-light, light baking to dynamic lighting. We’ll also tackle how you can optimize your scene using mesh, texture, and shader optimization.
Color Grading and OCIO
This week is all about the hues and tones. We’ll learn about OCIO and color grading as the color management system required for high imaging, and how to set up levels for collaborative working. By the end, you'll be ready to create master scenes (animation and environment for shooting).
Stage Preparation & Team Work
Time to pull together the A-Team. We'll cover camera tracking (Vive/Oculus trackers), various version control systems (manage your digital assets), and show you the ropes of VR scouting in multi-user and remote sessions. Plus, we'll give you the inside scoop on different integration tools (Remote Control, DMX, Level Snapshot) for seamless real-time production.
Greenscreen Specific Stage Prep and Shoot
This week, we're turning the world green, figuratively. We'll deep dive into everything green screen — from inputs, composure layers, material function-based keyer, and image plate projection. And on top of it? We'll run through an example green screen shoot!
LED Wall-Specific Stage Prep and Shoot
Lights, camera, nDisplay! This week we're setting the stage with a dazzling LED wall setup. We'll navigate the nitty-gritty of nDisplay, Cluster setup, Switchboard, Live Link, and more. And guess what? We’ll run a full-scale LED wall shoot!
