Ashfield Boys High School Studio
Having sufficient lighting for a white cyclorama studio can be difficult, as you need to consider how far light travels and whether you’re able to completely cover all shadows evenly. This can be even more difficult if keeping lights off the ground is necessary.
For Spine Street Studios, they wanted a ceiling mounted rig where they could have all their lighting mounted inside a large “softbox” type frame, that allowed for this even spread of soft light. This was achieved by constructing a large 6x6m aluminium square frame, which allowed for softbox diffusion fabric and blackout fabric to be attached around the outside, with 4x Lightpro DF-2000XL Studio LED’s mounted inside the frame. While we would usually recommend getting more lights inside the softbox frame to create a completely even spread of high-quality light, this now allows the studio the flexibility of getting more lighting installed in the future.
Additionally, this softbox frame was mounted onto a mechanical hoist system, with 4 hooking points allowing complete flexibility with height adjustment, as well as the ability to make adjustments and do maintenance with ease.
