Filmed January 2020, this demonstration shows the lighting on a miniature set, and the precise and subtle details that can be achieved using the dedolight system.
This piece demonstrates a mixture of tungsten and daylight, deliberately combined to create realistic and dramatic lighting on the miniature set.
This is an intricate setup with startling life-like results.
Dwight Campbell, Lighting Director, Chief Lighting Technician, demonstrates the lighting achieved with multiple dedolights, many with imager attachments with iris control and DPEye filters; Ledraptor 5 is used for overhead lighting, dedolight DLED3 and DLED7 focussing lights, and a selection of reflectors from the dedolight Lightstream system are used in combination with dedolight DLED9 with parallel beam intensifier.
This film is co-presented by Sean Boyriven from dedolight California. Sean runs through many details of the lighting setup, including the equipment used and how the different lighting techniques come together to create the overall result.
Dwight Campbell is a Los Angeles based gaffer, with a career which spans more that 30 years. In addition to his impressive feature film and commercial credits, including The Abyss (1989), Backdraft (1991) - Dwight Campbell has been the lighting supervisor of over 40 stages at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios for shows as diverse as “Robot Chicken”, “Supermansion” and “Buddy Thunderstruck”.
