If you haven’t heard of Shane, he’s an ASC member and has shot multimillion dollar blockbuster films such as Act of Valor, Drumline, Terminator: Salvation, The Rat Pack, and We Are Marshall.
For the Illumination Workshop, Shane will demonstrate his avant-garde approach to three-point lighting during an interactive live shoot which will teach students how to design, develop, enhance, and supplement the storytelling process with lighting, script analysis, storyboard preparation, lighting schematics, and shot lists. Students will have a chance to collaborate with Shane and receive guidance and feedback.
The Experience Masterclass is limited to 50 students and is a day-long hands-on intensive consisting of two live shoots. Students will be divided into four teams: DP, Camera, Grips, and Electrics, that will provide them with a real-life setting. Students will experiment with gear such as the Fisher 10 Dolly, the Movi, and the Kessler Crane in conjunction with various lights, filters, flags and bounces. Shane will critique each scene and provide customized feedback to each team.

From Shane Hurlbut – Many of you have requested that I create more – more in depth tests, more theory, more gear reviews, more answers and solutions for on-set problems, more access to the thought process behind my decisions, more immediacy and more direct access to me.
We are listening to your requests!
So, I ask you a question…
Are you passionate about filmmaking? You know that I am. I have been committed to sharing my on-set experiences on the HurlBlog for over five years because I wish there had been something like this when I was first starting out. I feel a responsibility as a successful filmmaker to give back and share the practical knowledge that no one seems willing to talk about.
During the time I have been sharing my experiences on this blog, you have been very supportive and have inspired me to do more – to keep writing about new on-set learning and to keep trailblazing with gear.
As technology evolves, artistic change is inevitable. I constantly challenge myself to talk about, think about, and write about new ideas. The intent is to elevate your knowledge base and creative ingenuity. We all must continue to challenge ourselves to achieve, to push beyond what we consider our comfort zone. I have built my career on achieving artistic mastery and I want to provide you with a technical foundation and creative perspective for doing the same thing. After months of design and planning, I have created Shane’s Inner Circle.
Shane’s Inner Circle is a monthly membership club designed to be intimate, interactive, and share extreme attention to detail for those of you who desire to take your filmmaking and storytelling to the next level. Many of you have voiced how my virtual mentorship has changed your life and that our current informational posts have helped shape you as a storyteller. This club is my commitment to help advance filmmaking knowledge globally. I think of it as being able to share the “Keys to My Castle.”
