News: Mayers Chooses Litepanels LEDs for ABC Comedy “Mixology”Cinematographer Michael Mayers’ assignment for the new ABC half-hour single camera comedy “Mixology” is to create a rich dramatic look with an immediacy and upbeat approach to his photography. “Because this is comedy, and there is a lot of improvisation, I try to cross-shoot with our two ARRI Alexa cameras which carry either Angenieux Optimo or Fujinon Cabrio lenses, whenever I can,” says Mayers. “That way, all the actors in the scene are ‘on’ at the same time and we don’t have to go back to shoot the other side of the coverage and lose the spontaneity of the moment. Of course, that approach really ups the ante on my lighting. And, that’s where Litepanels LEDs are key to my getting the shots.”
