Hi everyone, I am a student at a film school in Milan and I have to write a final dissertation on a topic of my choice.
At the moment I am interested in writing a thesis on the use of practical lights, on their merits, defects and on the close relationship that you have to establish with the art department to create a narratively effective light design.
My supervisor does not want an overly technical view, but a view that speaks of what artistically involves the use of practicals and how their use evolved over time.
Can you tell me if there is some book that talks about the subject exhaustively, or even documentaries, interviews and movies?
Thank you in advance!
