If you're going to embark on this journey it's worth starting with a good foundational understanding of the physics of light, and one of the best sources for that is the book Light ― Science & Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting. This is aimed at stills photographers, which is a different world from video and cinematography, but the basic principles of lighting are universal and someone learning to do lighting for video would still learn a lot from this book.

When I was in college my minor was "tech theater" and I learned this system of lighting and it has always worked well in a modified form in video as well. FWIW

It is called the THE MCCANDLESS SYSTEM after the author who devised the system. FWIW
