ERIC THAYNE LIGHTING SECRETS WORKSHOP PART 5: Beauty Lighting

In this video, we’re gonna talk about beauty lighting. This is the type of lighting that you’ll typically see in fashion spots or commercials for hygiene products, like Dove, or Head & Shoulders, for example. It’s a very common lighting setup for those types of commercials, especially when shooting women, because it produces a very soft light that […]

《足球教練不出場》

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UI4q83CxBEQ&feature=youtu.be 作者: 黄治澎 當少芬把她兒子所導演的May Bank賀歲電視廣告發給我時,我恰好在台灣桃園的細雨紛飛中。   少芬說兒子很執著,這支廣告都是他的意志。   不執著的導演,很快庸俗,一不小心就沉淪。   我暗忖:執著好。   在桃園細雨中看這支四分多鐘的「全連」廣告,有點思維錯位,如果不是那些組屋,看不出是我們的廣告。   「顏值」那麼高的「窮」組屋出現在影片中,運鏡極好,都是Shallow depth of field的鏡頭,也即是把難看的背景都模糊掉,高大上了中心人物。   美,有時很簡單,有時也很疲勞。   廣告中這麼美的姐妹花,童星亦然。   看多了草根化的本地視頻,很多製片都把本地美女俊男「安哥安迪」化;May Bank廣告的美女氣質都太超過,超過得讓人動容,終於,新加坡廣告有真美人了。   過去兩三年,我常說我們的視頻語言不修邊幅,甚至粗俗不堪,渣得不像話。   少芬兒子的廣告語言好得不像新加坡,這樣說,我自己打臉。   多少年沒聽到像話的華語劇情廣告片台詞,好的符合本地情境的廣告語言,還是難定位。   綜觀整體表現,作為一支廣告影片,年青導演有理由相信是被自己「克隆」了爸爸媽媽的創作DNA。   扣人心弦的敘事風格,一不小心,忘了他是本世紀的年青。   很悅目,很賞心,有血肉,有底藴,難得的作品。   「出類拔萃」有過之,「倜儻不群」猶可待。   但請別叫我示範,我暫時像足球教練,你沒見過足球教練出場踢球比賽的喔!
