Big movies still demand big setups, no matter what anyone tells you about the battery-powered light they’re trying to sell. Battery-powered lights are wonderful, of course, even if we only use the battery power for long enough to walk a light in and set it up, but popular ideas about just what they’re capable of can be, well, a little ambitious, and that’s occasionally getting people into trouble.
To coincide with the release of the new Creamsource Vortex8, DoPchoice offers new versions of its Snapbag and Snapgrid light controllers to fit and complement this new lighting technology.
The new MSLED 5-S broadcast studio LED luminaire is the smallest of PrimeTime’s commercial LED lights and is for use in commercial broadcast studios or for newscast broadcasts from remote locations.
The Presenter Lighting Kit uses PoE (Power over Ethernet) and wireless control to deliver simple and affordable lighting packages for single presenters.
Cinematographer John Brawley finds himself happily amidst of an unprecedented renaissance of high-end television. The Great is a production that presents a lavish (if fictionalised) spectacle of eighteenth-century Russia, with Brawley photographing five episodes, with the remainder shot by Maja Zamojda and Anette Haellmigk. Ranging from the Royal Palace of Caserta in Italy to castles and estates all over England, the production also built extensive sets at Three Mills Studios in east London.
DoPchoice is now delivering a new range of Snapbag light control tools, custom designed for the ARRI Orbiter LED fixture.
