topic icon Lighting crew hire for TV advert in Paignton

Mark just spent two days in Paignton filming with Simple Media and T&S Creative Communications. He was proving wet lighting hire for a TV advert for a major internet provider.

Mark arrived on the first day to help to set-up the lights that he was provinding. The crew spent the whole day getting the sets dressed, the lighting in place and blockings shots for the next day

As well as providing his lighting expertise, Mark also provided a range of kit for the event, including Aputure C300d LED lights, Aputure Nova LED softlight panels, Aputure 120d LED lights and the new Aputure MT tube light which was used to replicate TV flicker (see pic below). He also supplied a van load of light shaping and grip equipment.

Day 2 saw the ashoot take place, and it all seems to have gone well! We can't wait to see the final advert on screen
