NAB 2015: David Wells on ARRI’s Skypanel System with

Dave Wells was interviewed by at NAB 2015 for his opinion on the ARRI SkyPanel LED Soft Light.  He felt this was one of the coolest lights at NAB.  With its  very large aperture, these robust lights  [aluminum bodies and simple controls] produce great results when lighting actors as the light wraps beautifully.  You have the ability to adjust the color temperature anywhere between 2800K and 10,000K. You can add many types of diffusion with the front diffusion frame.  The light draws 400 watts and output exceeds a 2K soft light — they are very bright. You can also power the light with batteries.  The SkyPanel promises to be relevant for a  long time.  For more information or to rent the SkyPanel Soft Light visit us at

How Lighting Can Affect Your Perception of Colors #TheDress

As we have recently seen with the explosion of #TheDress, lighting is more than a minuscule detail. The wrong lighting can cause viewers to see different colors such as a blue dress with black lace or a white dress with gold lace.

Light enters your eye through a lens and hits the retina at the back of the eye. Different wavelengths correspond to different colors and fire connections to the visual cortex which tells the brain that you are looking at an image. The rods and cones in our eyes all affect how we see perceive items and colors.

Camera Crew Miami recently spent three days on-location in Miami, Palm Beach Gardens, and Jupiter for Project 10’s documentary titled “4 Days in April – The Mike Weir Story”. The film is about the Canadian PGA golfer Mike Weir, who started his career with nothing, then came within one putt of winning The Masters in Augusta in 2003. Some amazing material was shot at one of the country’s most beautiful professional golfing venues, the PGA National Resort and Spa during the Honda Classic Tournament. We would like to extend a special thanks to the wonderfully helpful grounds staff at The Dye Preserve in Jupiter, who gave us total access to their facility for all of our production equipment and provided us with several of their Ranger carts to haul our gear around.
