ICG Hosts At Cine Gear Expo: LA on June 3

Telling Stories with LED Lights, a panel discussion featuring leading cinematographers and gaffers examining the impact of new LED lighting sources on feature films and TV creativity and production. Produced by the International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE, ICG Local 600)

Saturday, June 3, 2017 (10:15 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.)

Sherry Lansing Theater, Paramount Studios, 5555 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles, 90038. Cine Gear Expo pass required. Panel open to all attendees at no cost.

Cinematographers have a new creative tool in their arsenal: high quality LED lighting sources. LEDs offer increased flexibility, control and reliability. They enable greater subtlety and precision and open the door to new kinds of lighting schemas and new ways to design and control color palettes. Hear from leading cinematographers and gaffers discussing how they work with off-the-shelf products, custom built sources and lighting programmers to finesse traditional looks and to explore new visual territory. Learn about their artful use of LEDs to convey mood, character and plot points on highly regarded motion picture and TV projects.
