dedolight: in the words of great cinematographers
In this 27 minute documentary cinematographers at the highest level talk about dedolight and what it is that separates these lights from other lights on the market. Key cinematographers featured in this documentary: *Billy Williams* - Credits include: Gandhi (Winner Academy Award Cinematography 1982) On Golden Pond (nominated Academy Award Cinematography 1981) *Nigel Stone* - Credits include: Total Recall (2012), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2011), Harry Potter (6 movies 2001 - 2009), Mission: Impossible II (2000) *Stefan Lange* - Credits include: Skyfall (2012(, Dark Shadows (2012) Die Another Day (2002), Mission Impossible (1996) *Stuart Harris* - Commercial credits include: Levis, Lee Jeans, Oil Of Olay, Pink Floor, Neutrogena, Vidal Sassoon, Head and Shoulders *Jonathan Harrison* - Has worked for all major UK broadcasters; trained as film cameraman, BBC Ealing Film Studios *Ian Murray* - Commercial credits include: Guinness, Nike. Coca Cola, Nikon, Nivea, Olay, Fairy, Head and Shoulders The key feature about dedolight, mentioned time and time again, is the optical quality which these lights offer. This applies to all dedolights: from the original DLH4 focussing to light, to the modern PanAura, DLED2, DLED4. Many of these lights work with projector attachments. The dedolights are unique and of the highest build quality. All dedolights provide excellent colour rendition and light which is controllable like no other system on the planet.

High-Class lighting in a small studio space
Step into the world of cinematographer Ian Murray and see how he transforms a small studio space into a classy, beautifully lit set, using only 3 lights. The lights at work are the dedolight PanAura 5, dedolight 400 with projector attachment, and dedolight 650. The entire piece was filmed using very low levels of light, creating distinct mood and feel. Ian Murray is one of the UK's top commercial cinematographers, known for his work in high budget commercials.

Shooting with Blackmagic URSA
Out on the streets, testing URSA to see how this camera shapes up. This is a production camera, designed for crews, yet also one person can command this camera. So what's it like to work with, is it manageable, can one person run around all day and shoot with this. Rick Young puts URSA to test on the streets of London and gives his verdict on how this camera feels in the hands.

SILKY-SMOOTH TIMELAPSE: FILMING SYDNEY AT DUSK

22/02/2015 - Chasing a shot against the fading light, we head out to Kirrabilli, the side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge opposite the city. I last filmed at this location in 1999. another time, with very different technology. This time I'm back with friends and co-workers and we're having fun shooting timelapse, still photographs, and enjoying the process of image creation. The knowledge and experience of each of the creatives comes through in this piece - how they work, how they think. and how they put their creative and technical skills to work. We get to appreciate the results. Cameraman Ben Tessler explains how he creates the time-lapse records: "So we have chosen to do this timelapse as a continuous record rather than just the multiple frames per second because we don’t want to lose anything that we’re seeing in the frame. We’ve got a lot of movement in this frame, there’s a lot of boats passing through. And with continuous record you don’t get that staggering effect where if you’re only getting 2,3, 4, 5 frames a second you lose the other 20 frames. So we’re doing a continuous record to enable that flowing shot. To give us the option of a nice smooth timelapse. And what this also means is that in post production we’ve got the options to do whatever we want with the shot." It is remarkable to see what changes in 15 years of technology; the quality of the video and still images is fantastic! Which of course makes me wonder just what the next 15 years will bring. A huge thanks to everyone who appeared in this piece!
