Jon Salmon


Director of Photography Jon Salmon walks you through how we planned, lit and shot the RJFS one-take, as well as what he is most excited for in the RocketJump Film School.

Lesson Plan

Welcome to the first video in RocketJump Film School’s Cinemtography Track!

One of RocketJump's favorite cinematographers, Jon Salmon (VGHS) talks about how he approached lighting and shooting the complicated one-take video, working with and trusting a team, and the creative difficulties and problem solving that came with such a complex shoot.

We're eager to delve into everything about cinematography, from angles and lenses and cameras, to lighting and color and movement. It's about more than just a good image--it's about telling a good story.
