Cape Ann TV’s Lunch & Learn Series: Lighting for Interviews with Ted Reed

On Wednesday, April 27th from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Cape Ann TV will be hosting a demonstration by professional video producer, Ted Reed, on how to properly light an interview. Ted will go over fundamental practices for lighting an interview to help you gain creative control over your lighting setups.

Ted will be conducting his demonstration using Cape Ann TV’s BRAND NEWlighting equipment.  Cape Ann TV recently invested in a Fillex field lighting kit with three mini-fresnel LED lights, 3 C-stands, and flag kit. “This additional lighting equipment perfectly compliments our existing equipment. Now our members will have total control over their lighting setups,” said Cape Ann TV Executive Director Erich Archer

Ted Reed Bio: Ted Reed has been writing, producing, shooting, directing, editing, (and eating, drinking  and sleeping) television and independent documentary production for decades. A longtime resident of Cape Ann, and winner of thirteen Emmy awards, Ted also taught filmmaking workshops at Tufts University, Boston University, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Endicott College, and the Boston Film and Video Foundation. He has worked nationally and internationally on news specials, magazine shows, documentaries, webcasts and corporate films as well as hundreds of TV commercials.  “One thing I’d like to see is everyone who wants to find their inner filmmaker to go ahead and make their movie,” he says. “You can make a commercial or a feature film with your phone, so why not?” His most recent work can be seen on his website, www.tedreed.tv.

We hope you can join us on Wednesday April 27th at noon for some lunch and learning!  Space is limited for this event; please RSVP to rtober@capeanntv.org to reserve your spot!

Lisa Smith from Cape Ann TV writes, “Zack is blowing us away over here. If you get a chance, please watch it (it’s only 4 minutes). This is only Zack’s 3rd editing assignment on a short video. It is his first time going out and shooting an event, I helped him with the interviews and he shot all the b-roll himself! He did all the editing. Zack is going into his senior year at MERHS and I think he is destined for big things. We have had some very talented interns in here, but I have never seen anyone like him. Oh yeah, he is a really nice young man too.”
