MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThis study investigates the knowledge resources informing television and film lighting design practice in Egypt, and the value of suggesting scientific recommendations to be followed. A questionnaire was circulated to a considerable number of professional lighting designers, lighting directors, directors of photography and cameramen working in the Egyptian media industry. Most of those addressed by the study survey indicated that their main knowledge resource during working is likely to be their own past experience and that very few of them depend on the recommendations of scientific research. Moreover, the critical analysis of the collected data illustrated that there is limited academic research in the discipline of lighting design available for Egyptian television and film practitioners to read and benefit from the generated results and findings. It was concluded that the discipline of lighting design needs more scientific research to establish a database of findings, theories, and paradigms just as any other design discipline.
