    I've been shooting a feature about the life of John Weld. The producers want to build social media awareness so I'm allowed to share some screen grabs while we're still in production.
    Here's a handful of recreation shots:

    Bill- what sort of thing do you use the batten lights and the "Lume Cubes" for?

    And no Joe-Lekos?

    Does anyone make a batten light with a high CR? Looking online it seems that they are all made for DJ's and I doubt that the color quality of the units is that good. I want something bi-color with a high CR rating. Something I can use to light the background of sit-down interviews. Essentially I am wanting a Kino 2' Single LED that is bi-color.


    Great looking images! I am envious. I love period pieces. Particularly that era.

    The batten lights have been thrown in large areas that need a warm back light or fill. I made my own with Shane Hurlbut's 85w bulbs. I have 12 in a row for just over 1000 watts all on a 1K dimmer.

    The Lume Cubes have been used to bring color and/or exposure to little nooks and crannies all over set. It's very easy to hide these little units, gel them, and adjust via Bluetooth. I also attached little snoots and use them as down lights with a hazer.

    Thanks for the kind words, this project is really a dream. The Art Dept is killing it, as is my small but talented crew. The schedule it very dense, 10-14 scenes/day.

    Oh, and a Jo-Leko was on my gear list but was cut for budget. I replaced it with a pair of my own tungsten Lekos.

    Back to it tomorrow.

    Really beautiful light. Do you know if the costumes are from Palace Costume on Fairfax?

    Thanks, rsbush. I can find out. We have over 60 costumes for this. The wardrobe and art dept trucks make our two-ton seem small by comparison.

    How big a crew? How many locations? How many days for a shoot/editing? I assume each scene is 2-3 written pages?
