OConnor Helps Crescenzo Raise the Bar of Visual Excitement on "CSI: Las Vegas"
News: OConnor Helps Crescenzo Raise the Bar of Visual Excitement on "CSI: Las Vegas"Keeping a hit television show that’s been on the air for 14 years fresh and interesting is a demanding challenge. As scripts get bigger to sustain audience interest, budgets inevitably get smaller. “When a show reaches syndication, it has primarily done its job of crossing the finish line of making money for a very long time,” says "CSI" cinematographer Crescenzo Notarile, ASC. “So, why spend more when the networks, at this point, don’t have to. It’s a creative challenge to keep the audience coming back with what we have. It’s not making more – it’s making the freshest. Working with OConnor and it’s support equipment, it keeps us cameramen perpetually perfecting camera movement and striving higher to express a story. Each week we try to creatively surpass what we did in the previous episode, and in our own way, raise the bar – if not for the audience, for ourselves as filmmakers. And, I can always count on OConnor to be there to help me make this possible.”

Mayers Chooses Litepanels LEDs for ABC Comedy “Mixology”
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.”
