Light and Motion Introduces Stella Pro Interview Kit at NAB

Light and Motion introduced a series of new Stella light kits at NAB, including the Pro Interview Kit by cinematographer Barry Andersson.

Combining features of the company’s single point LEDs, Light and Motion said each Stella kit is designed to support capture of high-quality content for professional interviews, broadcast news and expeditionary adventurers. The kits are powerful enough for use in the studio and for on location live shots in the most challenging weather.

In collaboration with cinematographer Barry Andersson, Light and Motion will offer a kit that the author of the “DSLR Filmmaker’s Handbook" has been using for commercial and documentary interview work across the country. The Stella Pro Interview Kit provides battery-operated freedom in a studio-output lighting package that travels in a carry-on case.

"I don’t have time to waste on location – I want equipment that sets up fast out of the case so I can spend time on the creative side working with the talent to get the shot – not needing to run cords and cables lets me work fast and efficiently," said Andersson.

The Interview Kit includes: two Stella Pro 8000 RF Lights, one Stella Pro 5000 RF light, wireless remote, an array of compact portable modifiers, mounts and power options packed into a travel-friendly hard-case roller. The kit weighs 27.7 pounds.

Other kits are designed for mobile production teams and professional cine lighting.
