Lit a 90’ x 50’ built set in such a way as to facilitate sweeping camera moves showcasing fashion models.

This was high-end commercial lighting to fulfill deep stop requirements & simultaneously provide flattering light for high key 270 degree views. Equipment included a Briese, (2) 18K booklights, a 16K HMI balloon with 40x40’ diffusion at the ready; Vortex8s and 1200d Pros were rigged to the set and in scissor lifts on wireless control.
