Of course, that approach really ups the ante on my lighting. And, that’s where Litepanels LEDs are key to my getting the shots.”

Litepanels Takes on the Wilds of Colorado for Horror Flick
News: Litepanels Takes on the Wilds of Colorado for Horror FlickFor writer/producer/director Robert Palmer, the idea behind "I Am Alone," starring Gareth David Lloyd, began as a simple horror film video diary, but as the story developed, Palmer and partner Michael A. Weiss realized that the concept behind this project would allow them to push the boundaries of both reality TV and horror films. A mention in “Entertainment Weekly” discussing their Kickstarter campaign gave them a boost, a promotion party in Montrose, Colorado gave them visibility – and they raised the modest budget they required. Going in, however, they knew their package had to be minimal, not only because of budget but also due to the hard to get to locations in the wilds of Colorado. That’s where Litepanels Sola 4 and Inca 6 LEDs came in.

Litepanels Helps Create European Approach to Emmy Nominated Series The Exes for Mooradian
News: Litepanels Helps Create European Approach to Emmy Nominated Series The Exes for MooradianGeorge Mooradian, ASC credits Litepanels® for helping him achieve what he calls a European approach in lighting for his Emmy nominated multi-camera series, The Exes. “The show is a real challenge,” he says. “It takes place in the narrow confines of Manhattan, New York. To create an urban cityscape with dark, cool shadows amid the building canyons, and to make it as real as possible in the multi-camera world, is a daily balance of shadow and light. I’m not going for a bright and colorful saturation of the reds and oranges but for more muted, cooler and grainier tones, with less fill light. It’s more single direction source and minimal, if any, augmentation. Litepanels LED lighting helps me achieve this.”
