The workshop will be held at Reel Men, 2225 E. McDowell Road in Phoenix.

APA Member Rick Pease will illustrate how a pro "builds" a lighting setup and why you choose certain lighting instruments. With more than 30 years experience shooting all formats of film and video, Director of Photography Rick Pease and the productions he has shot have garnered numerous awards regionally, nationally, and internationally. Although mainly focused on national and regional commercials, Rick has shot a multitude of other projects with crews and budgets of all sizes.   

APA Member Eric Koski will talk about the different lights, color temperature, wattage, stands, etc. and the proper way to set a c-stand. Eric has worked professionally in the film business since 1993. As a Gaffer, Eric has been the Chief Lighting Technician for feature films, television, commercials, and corporate broadcasts, working with DPs to develop lighting as a visual element, ordering the correct lighting instruments, and hiring and managing a crew of trained technicians to light the set.
