ICG Hosts Telling Stories with LED Lights At Cine Gear Expo, Los Angeles on June 3, 2017


LR-icglogoThe International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE, ICG Local 600) has announced Telling Stories with LED Lights, a panel to take place at Cine Gear Expo on Saturday, June 3 (10:15 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.). The panel discussion will feature leading cinematographers and gaffers examining the impact of new LED lighting sources on feature films and TV creativity and production.


The official synopsis of the panel: “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.”

The panel will be moderated by Michael Chambliss, technologist & business representative, International Cinematographers Guild IATSE Local 600, and will feature the following:

Mike Bauman, gaffer; Phantom Thread, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Iron Man 2

Ronald Dragosh, gaffer; Chicago Justice, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire (Season 1, electrician)
