Aputure & Quasar Science Lighting Masterclass: The Truth About RGB


Aputure is putting on a free lighting masterclass in Los Angelas on Thursday, January 9, 2020, from 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM PST. The lighting masterclass is called “The Truth About RGB”. The class will be lead by Aputure’s Ted Sim and Quasar Science’s Tim Kang, as part of their FLEX (Film Lighting Experiences) Series. This free-to-attend event will be focusing on how to use LED, understand a new-age lighting workflow and identify limitations of the film industry’s most exciting and popular equipment.

Registration INFO

To register use this Eventbrite link. Please note that registering does not guarantee entry as the masterclass is first come first serve.

In addition to bringing a LIVE demonstration of lighting and the limitations of LED that our industry faces, they will also reveal potential pitfalls that you may have already faced on your productions but have been unable to identify. Filmmakers, cinematographers, content creators and even union lighting technicians of all different levels will benefit from this masterclass. This class is not only a workshop in LED but also in the underlying color science and a live demonstration of why we perceive lighting the way that we do.

In hopes of educating, informing, and bringing the filmmaking community even closer together, Aputure and Quasar Science are thrilled to also be partnering with Lee Filters, Rosco and Sekonic and would like to especially thank the sponsors who have supported getting this knowledge and the truth to you: Samy’s Cinemaworks, F22 Studios, and Cinelease.

This event will take place at LA FILM BOUTIQUE on January 9th, so mark your calendars.
