UK - Having developed and introduced LED solutions for over 15 years, Chroma-Q has built a steady following within the production industry, that continues to see the creative application of their low energy technology by a growing number of crews.
A selection of products from the company’s range of low energy solutions were put to good use recently, with experienced gaffer, Wayne Shields (Brave New World, The Witcher season 2).
Wayne says, “I’ve worked with Chroma-Q products for a few years now. As an LED source, they deliver some great results, powerful output with plenty of flexibility when you need it.”
Wayne and his crew recently made use of the company’s Color Force IITM LED battens, with an installation designed to deliver a range of creative, in-camera effects.
He explains’ “We used the Color Force II to illuminate a large-scale interior and create some pretty intense fire effects, within a listed building in central London. The fixtures work well for this type of application - quick to set up and simple to use. The overall effect was easy to control and delivered some great looks.”
Wayne has also achieved a strong performance from the Brute Force during filming with cinematographer Romain Lacourbas AFC, at a remote exterior location.
“The Brute Force really was both a surprise and delight to work with,” Wayne continues, “we rigged it overhead for a night shoot, in some pretty dense woodland. The output was superb, drawing only minimum power, which was an added bonus in such a remote setting. The fixture has a great spread and the weather cover accessory made it particularly useful for a UK location during winter.”
Chroma-Q’s global brand manager, Paul Pelletier comments, “We’re always delighted to receive positive feedback on the way Chroma-Q is performing both in the studio and on location. We are extremely grateful to Wayne for sharing his experience using our products. We continue to be proud to be supporting crews, cinematographers and gaffers right around the world.”
