Sensory Calm Quiet Room from Ryan Jackson on Vimeo.

The sensory calming quiet room at Our Lady of the Prairies Elementary School in Edmonton on Jan 8, 2016. The room is a getaway from the noise and buzz of an ordinary classroom, an important break for students who may feel overwhelmed by a busy day. It is also a place for students who have outbursts to calm down in private before returning to their peers in class. Video by Ryan Jackson, Edmonton Journal

This video was a fun challenge to make. There were so many interesting lights and objects to shoot but the room was very small and dark. I used my Dedolights to shape and splash light on objects to bring out details.  For example, I beamed light on the chair, the toy on the floor, behind the tree and the painting on the wall. If lighting is done right you shouldn’t be able to tell it was lit at all.
