The music video “4 Uhr Nachts” (“4 O'clock at Night”), a collaboration of the German Hiphop artists Sido, Haftbefehl, and Kool Savas, was already viewed seven billion times on YouTube. During the shooting at the end of 2018, directors Alexsandar Jelic and Juri Mazumdar together with DP and Steadicam operator Nikola Krivokuca and gaffer Christian Mansmann worked with ARRI LED lampheads for the lighting. Specifically, one large SkyPanel 360-C and two medium sized SkyPanels S60-C.
They were already familiar with the advantages and creative possibilities of the various modes and the remote controllability of ARRI’s LED luminaires. “I remember when the SkyPanels S60-C came on the market. Because of their clean and vivid colors, but especially due to their full-color spectrum, they quickly became my standard tool for a wide variety of productions. I can’t remember how often I’ve used the light effects,” explains Nikola Krivokuca, who also likes to use SkyPanels as a “cold light source when shooting without an infrared filter.”
