AbelCine EXPO Highlight: Innovations in Lighting

At our recent AbelCine EXPO: Innovations in Lighting, cinematographer David Mullen, ASC spoke about the more unusual lighting challenges from some of the feature films and television series he has photographed. In the excerpt above, David explains how he dealt with the stylized photographing of an exterior daytime landscape that was actually a huge indoor set while shooting The Smell of Success.

The event also showcased numerous new technology lighting solutions from ARRI, Hive Lighting, Litepanels, Lowel, Nila, PRG TruColor, and Zylight. Attendees were able to get an in-depth look at the various fixtures, test side-by-side comparisons between the available options, and learn about the opportunities afforded by these modern tools. In addition to the EXPO show floor, three presentations were delivered to attendees and made available over the internet via Livestream. The complete presentations are available now on our YouTube channel.

I spoke with Alan Ipakchian from Vitec Group to see what’s new with Litepanels’ line of industry-standard LED fixtures. Their new Astra models offer increased brightness over the original 1×1 Astra; the Astra 3X and Astra 6X provide, as you might guess, 300% and 600%, respectively, of the 1st generation panels’ output.

Tech News
In our industry, most people hear LED lighting and think of small low-power lights that can be mounted on a camera or stashed in a corner. What does not generally come to mind is "high output," as most people believe that large tungsten or HMI units are still the only choices for real punch.
