I am currently writing my dissertation, assessing the quality of light produced by established diffusion and bounce materials in comparison to LED fixtures compatible with new diffusion solutions, such as those with variable electronically diffused panels. In order to support my secondary research, I have created a series of questions to gain insight from industry professionals and specialists on the future of lighting and diffusion. If you feel you can answer all or any of the following questions and are and industry professional or specialist, I would appreciate it greatly! Q1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of colour tuneable LED lights? Q2. What are the advantages and disadvantages of diffusion filters/materials? Q3. What is your opinion on new LED electronically adjusted diffusion panels and what do you know about them? Q4. Do you think electronically diffused LED panels can replace industry standard diffusion filters/materials and why? Q5. How popular are electronically diffused LED panels and do you think manufacturers will produce more? Q6. Where do you see electronically diffused LEDs in the industry currently? Q7. What is the longevity of electronically diffused LED panels compared to diffusion filters?
I'm shooting a short project this Saturday and I have an opportunity on Friday night to perform lighting tests with the actors. I watched Russell Carpenter's tutorial on actor lighting tests on the ASC web site, but haven't found any other useful references. Does anyones have tips, tricks, and tutorial links on how to best perform lighting tests on actors? This project is for the Producers Guild of America contest, so I don't know the genre, nor do I have a script - I won't until Saturday morning! Ideally I'd like to get "generic" advice on how you go about testing in pre-production. S. Allman ----------------------------------- illuma.blogspot.com
