Lighting for video and film is the key critical component of effective cinematography. No matter how fine the camera, or the lenses, or the actual manipulation of these tools, if the lighting isn't done well the end result is amateur at best.

Well developed skills in the control of light and shadow make all the difference in the filmmaker's ability to convey any particular scene's primary communicative purpose.

The lighting gaffer (chief electrician) and the lighting grip (assistant) are the individuals most closely associated with the implementation of equipment and devices for generating and controlling light and shadow in any scene of a film production or video shoot.
