New DS Webpage!
We have a new webpage! And with it, a new US online store, so to kick things off, we are running a limited promotion giving 15% off on DS1s from our new online store. Use the code NEWSTORE at checkout.
The promotion is limited to 20 x DS1. First come first serve! (edit: there are now only 7 left at the time of publishing this).
DS on Netflix Again
There is a new show on Netflix that was lit by DS lights. It is called 'Daybreak', so check it out.
DoPs Duane Manwiller and Jaron Presant.
Video-based pixel mapping using a visual drag and drop interface is working on the Voyagers through a wireless connection. On the video below, we used 20 x 4ft Voyagers to create a screen with a resolution of 20 x 80 pixels.
Congratulations to Green Book for the Best Picture Oscar!
As far as nominated films went, DS lights were involved in Vice (DoP Greig Fraser) and A Star is Born (DoP Matthew Libatique), so it’s very likely that DS lights will be used on their follow-up projects. For Fraser, it is Dune, as many of you know. We’re looking forward to it.
Fraser on his current workflow:
"When we (DoP Greig Fraser, Gaffer Michael Bauman) use LEDs, we need a fraction of rigging, a fraction of the cabling, a fraction of the manpower and time to rig, a fraction of the air conditioning and we're using significantly less electricity - FOR THE PRODUCTION IT MEANS MASSIVE SAVINGS"
