Mayers Chooses Litepanels LEDs for ABC Comedy “Mixology” lunedě, 18 Novembre 2013 - 02:55 PM - 4 Months, 4 ago - 11 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (Van Nuys, California--November 18, 2013) 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.” Mayers lights from just below and/or above the frame lines of both cameras. “With traditional tungsten fixtures, this was a difficult and time-consuming approach,” he says. “Tweenies with Chimera bags are beautiful, but too heavy and awkward to suspend out on the end of an arm. And they are too hot to be placed just beside an actor’s leg all the time.
Sachtler Ace L Hot New Support Spirit Juice Studios lunedě, 18 Novembre 2013 - 11:55 AM - 4 Months, 4 ago - 11 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (Shelton, Connecticut--November 18, 2013) When Rob Kaczmark of Spirit Juice Studios takes on an assignment, he knows two things: he will have a tight budget and limited time. “Being from Chicago, we have to fly a lot of equipment with us to locations,” Kaczmark says. “Having a lightweight tripod like the Sachtler Ace L system with us on the trip really makes our job easier, especially due to the run-and-gun nature of the shoot. The Ace L is easy to set up, smooth, and most importantly, extremely portable.” Made by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, the Ace L is a 75mm fluid head with a choice of carbon-fiber tripods to support a payload range of 0-13.2 pounds. It provides seven-step counterbalancing and patented SA dragTM (Synchronized Actuated Drag) with three vertical and three horizontal grades of drag (+0) for an authentic broadcast feel and familiar dependability.
