At our recent AbelCine EXPO: Innovations in Lighting, cinematographer David Mullen, ASC spoke about the more unusual lighting challenges from some of the feature films and television series he has photographed. In the excerpt above, David explains how he dealt with the stylized photographing of an exterior daytime landscape that was actually a huge indoor set while shooting The Smell of Success.
The event also showcased numerous new technology lighting solutions from ARRI, Hive Lighting, Litepanels, Lowel, Nila, PRG TruColor, and Zylight. Attendees were able to get an in-depth look at the various fixtures, test side-by-side comparisons between the available options, and learn about the opportunities afforded by these modern tools. In addition to the EXPO show floor, three presentations were delivered to attendees and made available over the internet via Livestream. The complete presentations are available now on our YouTube channel.
