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.”

News: SIM Digital Reinvents the Rental House Model to Serve a Production Industry Where Data is KingJohn DeBoer, chief operating officer of Toronto-headquartered SIM Digital, sensed that the rental house business model needed to evolve back in 2009. At that time, SIM had been operating for nearly three decades and become one of the top rental houses in North America for cameras, editing systems and a variety of other gear for television, commercials and broadcast production. The rental business was going through a radical shift as productions were abandoning 35mm film in favor of digital capture. The shift involved more than switching cameras, the entire production and post-production workflow—one that had been in place for decades—needed to be reinvented in order to accommodate imagery in the form of data files rather than celluloid.
