Review

"Harry Box's Set Lighting Technician's Handbook (Focal Press) is a gold mine of information about safety, lighting and studio procedures." - Ron Dexter, ASC

From the Back Cover

"Harry has taken the mystery out of set lighting for the beginner or pro. Current and includes the most up-to-date tricks of the trade. A book written by a pro who loves and respects his craft and is selfless in sharing information." –Mike G. Moyer, gaffer, Steel Magnolias, In the Line of Fire, Ground Hog Day

"Box’s style is reminiscent of an old buddy showing his best friend the ropes…perhaps the most easily read technical handbook to date…the broadest in scope and coverage, yet carefully covers the essential details." –Seth Greenspan, Filmcrew Magazine

The Set Lighting Technician’s Handbook is a friendly, hands-on manual covering lighting and rigging equipment, day-to-day practices and tricks of the trade essential to anyone doing motion picture lighting. The book delves into every aspect of lighting: from lighting design decisions to set protocol and teamwork; from rigging safety to equipment troubleshooting; from basic electricity to advanced electrical systems planning. Whether you’re a lamp operator, best boy, rigger, gaffer, or director of photography, this trusted, long time industry favorite covers what's important on set.

New to the expanded Fourth Edition:

* Expanded coverage of LED lights, lighting control networks, computer applications in lighting, advanced automated and digital lighting devices, creating effects with ellipsoidal spotlights, wet locations and GFCI protection, rigging, dimmer systems, modern battery technology, small generators and much more

*Reflects all the current industry safety standards, guidelines, practices, and codes

*Companion website offers exclusive content, including tables, illustrations, articles, historical information, and more. Please see http://booksite.focalpress.com/box/setlighting

Harry C. Box has worked in television and motion picture production since 1989. Over the years he has done substantial work as a lighting technician, gaffer, camera operator, director of photography, and as an educator. His recent credits include network and cable television series, such as Heroes (NBC), Brothers and Sisters (ABC), and Everybody Hates Chris (CW). He has worked on major motion pictures, independent feature films, telefilms, documentaries, music videos, commercials, and industrials.
