Renkai music video "Fly"

How to Light a Film Like a Cinematographer | Job Shadow

Today I’m taking you behind the scenes of a recent music video I shot in Ecuador for the artist Renkai (song “Fly”). I show you how I lit and shot a scene, and talk about other important elements that made it possible to make my work as cinematographer look good.

The music video was directed by Danny Ruan. His Instagram and Facebook.
