ACQUISITION On set of BBC’s “In the Flesh” lit by the Rotolight ANOVA V2 EcoFlood D irector of Photography, Dale McCready recently lit the second series of BBC’s award nominated Zombie drama “In the flesh” with the Rotolight ANOVA Bi Colour V2 LED flood light. New Zealand born DoP, and Steadicam operator, McCready, has worked on some of Britain’s most highly rated series such as Atlantis, Dr. Who, and Merlin including the feature fi lm; ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’. McCready offers a brief insight on his use of the new Version 2 Rotolight ANOVA Floodlight: plugged in via DMX. Need a lighting desk program but don’t want a desk? Use your iPad instead!” The new Rotolight ANOVA Bi Colour V2 Flood light can be electronically set to accurately reproduce any colour of white light from candlelight through to full daylight in 10 degree Kelvin steps 3150K – 6300K maintaining perfect colour temperature across the whole dimming range. Each light is hand calibrated using a Laser Aligned testing process for outstanding colour accuracy. “I measured on my Sekonic colour meter early on and found it to be very neutral in terms of green/magenta cast.” “At IBC I came across the Rotolight booth and thought that their Anova lamp, a nice, punchy, lightweight, round LED panel with unique fl ower like barn-doors could work nicely for me. It dims, is adjustable in colour temperature with a digital readout and also contains a WiFi chip to create its own network which you can access through the Rotolight Magic Eye app. (download from the Apple app. store).

I’m using it directly as a nicely rounded soft spotlight, bouncing it off poly, diffusing it with Depron, gels, a Chimera Softbox (new Rotolight accessory), hanging it from stands and also often just bouncing it off the ceiling for fi ll. It’s not “that tricky LED lamp for last minute eye-lights but not the ladies faces”, instead, it’s the go-to lamp for nearly every setup. The lamp’s colour is good enough there’s no need to think about it as a separate tool. It’s just another lamp in the truck. It fi ts in with the 650’s, it fi ts in with the HMI’s, it fi ts in with the Kino’s. I measured on my Sekonic colour meter early on and found it to be very neutral in terms of green/magenta cast. It’s quick to adjust, and if I can’t reach the control on the back, then the iPhone app can be used to tweak it from by the camera.” Featuring totally fl icker free ‘best in class’ LED technology with an overall CRI=95 and skintone=98, the ANOVA range is now available in 6 new fl avours; Bi-Colour, Solo 5600K and Solo 3200K, with a choice of Beam angle 110º ‘ULTRAWIDE’ for beautiful soft lighting or 50º ‘STANDARD’ for greater straight-line output. Each Anova unit includes V-Lock battery mount as standard and DMX or Wireless control via the Rotolight Magic Eye iPhone / iPad app. “I go back to shooting Atlantis next month and the Anova is going to be very handy indeed” “I did a setup today where I wanted very fi ne control of the level for convincing night fi ll and could tweak
