Rodney Charters: Litepanels Works "24"

My gaffer; David St. Onge discovered Litepanels at a trade show and bought a two-lite kit on the spot. When he brought them to the set of 24, I was so taken with them, I immediately bought a kit. Now, they're an essential lighting tool on every episode.

Their soft quality & Dimmability gives me a tremendous confidence. I always use them in close quarters just to get a little something subtle into the eyes at the last minute. Dependable color temperature allows for experimentation on the spot by swapping out gels fro the precut pack to the variety of shifts possible.

The kits come with a snap-on battery plus cabling, AC power supply/charger, car adapter & more. Physical size is a huge help when working with existing lighting in real environments. The Litepanels' small form means they can be used in less obvious ways.

I would also recommeend to beginning filmmakers that a Litepanels kit is the first light they purchase. Especially when shooting video. On a DVCam feature for my daughter, I found them especially invaluable since I was working alone without a crew. I was able to attach two units onto the windshield in front of and above the driver, for a raking light in a moving car. They operated off of the car's cigarette plug.

Litepanels is that magic tool that constantly reinvents itself as a useful solution, whether on big films or alone with an HDV camera.
