Course Description

Senior lighting technicians apply the skills and knowledge outlined in this unit. On large-scale productions, they are most likely to work collaboratively with a lighting designer who has devised the lighting plan.
On smaller productions (including televised outside broadcasts), a senior lighting technician may be required to devise and implement a lighting plan which includes filler lighting and lights for presenters on location.
A significant aspect of the role described in this unit is the need to understand fully the correlation between lighting and the cameras, lenses and stock formats being used in a given film or television production. The competency PERF5064C Implement lighting designs is taught alongside VART5929C Direct television programs and segments
