Gaffer, John Busch, with over two decades of experience constantly turns to the Para for its ability to create beautiful light. “It gives that wonderfully round catchlight in the eye, really great when we’re doing cosmetics and close ups on the face.”
He adds, “the light is beautifully specular but with a shadow quality that changes between focused and defocused position. Focused or spotted, the output is so punchy.”
With their level of clientele, VSNY must rely on their tools to perform without flaw. Busch explains, “there’s already so many things that can go wrong, so many technical systems.” In this, the HMI 800.1600 electronic ballast, features three modes – color optimum, low noise, or for high-speed frame rates, all with broncolor’s renowned reliability.
Even with experience with other parabolic-style reflectors, the Paras continue to find a home in their work, unrivaled in simplicity and versatility. VSNY continues to rely on broncolor to exceed expectations to shape and craft light in a strong diversity of creative needs.
