Chauvet stars in new Tyler Perry movie

April 5, 2012
Date Announced: 05 Apr 2012 ATLANTA, Ga. – More than 60 CHAUVET® Professional fixtures make their big-screen debut in Tyler Perry’s new romantic drama, “Good Deeds.” Southeast Staging, Inc. set up the runway and brought in lighting for the design team’s “Club Riot” scene. To light the scene, Bob Daniel, president and chief executive officer of Southeast Staging, Inc., recommended COLORado™ Tour fixtures because of their on-camera capability as well as their efficiency, powerful output and precise color temperature settings.“We chose the COLORado™ Tour series because they are the brightest and most versatile lights in their class,” Daniel said. “We dialed in the exact temperature needed for film and they performed flawlessly on camera. Each light did everything it said it would do.”To light the translucent 40-by-8-by-3 foot runway, Daniel and his team placed 12 COLORado™ 1 Tour and 18 COLORado™ 1 VW Tour wash lights underneath the structure to create a soft glow. Twelve COLORado™ 1 Tour fixtures warmed two, 11-by-12 foot truss arches while 12 COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour linear wash lights provided uplighting and projected a seamless backwash. Four Legend 6500 moving heads also appeared in the scene and provided effect lighting. To easily relocate fixtures and avoid inundating the space with cables, Daniel controlled the COLORado™ package using Satellite™ D-Fi wireless DMX systems. “This film is the first major motion picture for Southeast Staging, Inc. and we’re ecstatic to be moving into lighting in Atlanta,” Daniel said. “Technology is at a point where achieving exact color temperature with LED fixtures is simplified —this is the future for film.”
