Staying Light on our Feet

Posted Jul 25, 2017 in Technology

We get these calls every now and then: “Hey, can you grab an interview with so and so, it’ll just take an hour!” or “So, we have a doctor who is ONLY in town for the day, can you grab him fast?”

Who doesn’t love to do the big shoots? The kind with a whole team of people, all out there getting the cool stuff. But there are times where you just have to be nimble and fast, and so we put together a nice simple package—Canon 5D Mk III, Zoom F5 audio recorder, and a couple mics. And now, to top it all off, some cool lights that are ridiculously light and simple, while still actually putting out some decent level! When our DP buddy Bill Burke mentioned he was looking at these Intellytech FL-80 light mats, we knew we had to see them for ourselves. We also picked up one of their Light Stix for good measure. If these new kits good enough for Bill, who always researches the dickens out of things, they are certainly good enough for us.

Lightweight, easy to set up, battery powered (or AC!), and flexible enough to bend into a corner…how COOL is that?

2017, and the lighting is EASY!!

Now, when is someone going to come up with that notch filter to take out air conditioner noises?
