April 4, 2014, Nicole Esquibel-MFA-Film and Digital Media was a guest lecturer at the Johnson County Community College Take 5 filmmaking workshops. The title of her talk was "Lights (Mom, can we use this?), Camera, Action." Students were shown practical lighting techniques for students with limited budgets and access to professional equipment. Esquibel introduced the students to basic lighting theory and strategies with tips for effective lighting elements for film and video production. The audience of about 100 students, teachers and staff from high schools around the Kansas City area gathered for a day of filmmaking workshops followed by a screening of students film and video projects.
