Media Production Mentoring

Online film school designed with beginning filmmakers in mind.


On Cookies

My wife made me move some of my video stuff out of the living room, which I should have done a week ago. One of the items that I had to move was a Cookie: A really high-tech lighting tool made from a piece of cardboard with scissors.

A Cookie In Action

What incredible tool that can pull of such stunning shots is used in this lighting setup? Let me show you:

One Light and a Cookie

For all the expense that goes into equipment, filmmaking often employs the cheapest little tools that change a production from a home movie into a motion picture.

So, don't throw out that box. Move it out of the living room and keep it under your bed for your next production. ...Just don't forget it's there.
