For VFX Creation, Aaron Sims Creative Finds Highly Versatile Collaborator in Litepanels’ Gemini 2X1 LED Panel
At Aaron Sims Creative (ASC) we’re continually pushing the boundaries of cinematic visual effects, and our team is behind some of today’s most memorable movie monsters. Our otherworldly creatures and settings have brought chills and thrills to a broad range of high-profile projects, including current hits like the Netflix science fiction-horror drama “Stranger Things” and the Walt Disney Pictures movie “A Wrinkle in Time.”
LED lighting is a particular interest area for me, and it’s why I was so excited to learn of Litepanels’ new Gemini 2x1 soft panel. I was able to have a sneak peek at Gemini before it was launched, and I was struck by three things: how incredibly lightweight the panel is (no external ballast required), how easy it is to set up and use, and how much versatility it offers for creating different kinds of lighting effects.
Litepanels’ Gemini 2x1 RGB-WW soft panel combines daylight, tungsten, and red-green-blue LEDs to provide the precise yet flexible color adjustment I require for my work. While I also appreciate how well it produces true full-spectrum white light, I actually chose Gemini because of its quality and the peace of mind I enjoy while using it.
