Rotolight Anova PRO 2 makes an appearance on Dancing on Ice
Fans of the much-loved series, Dancing on Ice, may have spotted the recently launched Rotolight Anova PRO 2 make an appearance in the glamour and profile shots, helping to create a dramatic new look for the tenth series of the show.
30 lights in total were used, provided in five custom-designed rigs for the filming of the TV idents, with the unique rigs each featuring six lights mounted in large ringlight configurations. Chris Yacoubian, director of photography for the glamour and profile shots for the show sought out the Rotolight lighting based on the popularity and capabilities of the range,
"I saw the Anova PRO 2 clustered together and that just sparked my creativity. The lights are powerful, portable and beautiful in terms of their colour rendition and skin tones. They are a fantastic tool and deliver and perform perfectly. I'm thrilled with the result."
The Rotolight Anova PRO 2 is a pioneering continuous light and High-Speed Sync (HSS) flash for creative professionals and is one of the brightest LEDs ever launched in its class! The light includes a customisable suite of Rotolight's award-winning CineSFX™ (Fire, Lightning, TV, Gunshot, Paparazzi etc.) which eliminates the need for expensive, time-consuming legacy 'flicker-box' workflows. The LED light provides the best power to consumption ratio in the industry, with a mere 72W consumption.
"Everyone is really pleased with the end result. The Anova PRO 2s have been amazing. They look stunning and have the ability to flash, pulse and change. They gave us that edge over other TV shows and provided the cherry on the cake for the glamour shots. I really love them" says David Sutton, VT director.
This is not the first time the award-winning Rotolight range has been used for the big screen, with popular films such as James Bond "Skyfall" and "Captain Phillips" requiring Rotolight's range of high-performance lighting.
