There are also one day and weekend seminars given by cinematographers, often hosted by lighting manufacturers or rental houses and some just done on their own. Here in the US there have been several that travel around giving lighting or cinematography workshops. You might want to look into that. Also, perhaps British Cinematographer magazine hosts some or advertise some?
There's a documentary about Jack Cardiff and both he and Freddie Young wrote books - both major British figures in the art of cinematography. "Magic Hour" by Jack Cardiff and "The Work of the Motion Picture Cameraman" by Freddie Young. The DVD of Black Orpheus has a special feature about Jack Cardiff's wonderful lighting. Freddie Young's autobiography is "Seventy Light Years" and there's a biography of Cardiff titled "Conversations with Jack Cardiff".
One of the main things about lighting for movement is lighting the end mark first, which is usually where the actors will spend most of their screen time. Also remember that we humans perceive motion by things moving in and out of light. So its good to have variations in light levels as the subjects move. One of the most important things is that the subject's motions need to be planned and nailed down. There's a great story about Gorden Willis while shooting The Godfather, that he threw a tantrum and walked off set because Coppola won't nail down the blocking of his actors in a scene. Willis was already a well established and recognized artist and Coppola was still up and coming. Willis told Coppola he had to do his job and tell the actors where to go so that he could light it. Coppola said that was one of the best lessons he learned about working on film.
Sorry to be plugging my book again, but if you want to practice lighting for actor movement, I have a few exercises in my book, which got good reviews from International Cinematographer's Guild magazine and was mentioned in British Cinematographer magazine. Its only $29 so its not a major investment and it is being used in a number of film schools as its about how to get a bigger budget look with low budget gear. I wrote it based on my experiences working as a union gaffer and indie DP and on the lighting course I've been teaching for over 10 years. So its a do-it-yourself film course.
My advice, for whatever its worth, is to set some time aside and practice lighting things with the gear you have. We all learn by doing.
