ICG CineGear Panel: Telling Stories with LED Lights
Cinematographers have a new creative tool in their arsenal: high quality LED lighting sources. LEDs offer greater flexibility, control and reliability. The lights can be hidden discreetly under a table, wrapped around a pole and even floated (hung). LEDs enable greater subtlety and precision, they open the door to new kinds of lighting schemas and new ways to design and control color palettes.
Hear from leading cinematographers and gaffers discussing how they work with off-the-shelf products, custom built sources and lighting programmers to finesse traditional looks and to explore new visual territory. Learn about their artful use of LEDs to convey mood, character and plot points on highly regarded motion picture and TV projects.
