Was there any particular attribute of the ARRI lights that was especially helpful on set?
One of the SkyPanels was used in a variety of tasks; its function changed according to the shot. We used it to level out the overall lighting on set and we also used it to highlight certain areas or subjects when needed. The versatility of this fixture was extremely useful. It allowed us to create powerful direct beams or very soft nuances.
For the more directive and warm touches on the set, I used the L5-C and L7-C Fresnels, which were ideal to precisely illuminate a decorative element and create well marked shadows. Moreover, I could easily warm up their color temperature if needed.
It was very important in this film to maintain very precise shades, whether in the color temperature or in the green-magenta balance. The ARRI LED luminaires were all equally balanced, so I was able to base my camera work around them and only had to adjust the few other small sources that I added. This saved us a huge amount of time in prelighting and this precision was perfectly in line with the aesthetic vision of the film director Miao. The speed and discretion of the lighting adjustments also was a comfort to have during the shooting and was very much appreciated by the whole team.
