Light is light and does not change as we change formats and locations. Lighting is more than just lamps and hardware. It is about controlling and shaping the light. The behind-the-scenes production of any film, large/small, relies on the work and careful detail of several key crew members who help make the production possible. Among that crew is the "lighting crew." You definitely do not realize it when you watch a film, but each scene required several minutes (if not hours) of carefully placed lights to make the scene look great on film.
A few weeks back a team from ARRI, Thomas Binsert, Harth Muth and Nyokabi Kahura, producer and managing director at African Visuals media ltd came to visit Kibera Film School. After touring the office and watching short films by trainees they promised to donate lights and they kept their promise. With this gift trainees at Kibera Film School will be able to make the scenes of their sets look realistic and help establish mood.
