Collins College, a school of design and technology, and Earl Jones Institute for Film & Television are conducting free seminars on “Grip and Lighting Basics” used in both film production and TV production.
Industry film professionals from Phoenix and Los Angeles instruct students on equipment use. The hands on, professional information is open to students and the general public.
Film and television professionals often rent a grip and lighting truck when they are filming outside a production studio. A fully equipped grip and lighting truck typically has a generator, power cables, a dolly, and lighting equipment. Additional equipment can include camera packages and camera support.
The equipment would normally rent for approximately $1,200 per day, but is being donated by Earl Jones Institute for Film & Television. The Institute hires and pays for the film professionals conducting the seminars.
For more information about the free seminars, call the Earl Jones Institute for Film & Television at 480-732-1700, call Collins College at 480-966-3000.
“Hosting the seminars at the Collins College Tempe campus is a perfect fit for our students. Collins offers a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Media Arts and an Associate of Arts Degree in Media Arts. Access to a professional grip truck provides students with the basic technical and project management skills required in film and television production,” said Steven Bradford, Department Chair Media Arts, Collins College.
The institute was co-founded by Mathew Earl Jones, son of actor Robert Earl Jones and brother of actor James Earl Jones. The institute was founded in 1983 as the Harlem Folklore Theater. In recognition of the institute’s efforts to promote education and preparation for minority and disadvantaged filmmakers in Arizona, Governor Napolitano proclaimed February 1, 2005 as “Earl Jones Institute Day.” For more information, call 480-732-1700.
