Cyclos & co

Comments Off

The camera works fine with infrared lights now, thanks to help by Guillermo Casado (Fotograma, Paris), Michael Janssen & Gregor Van Mulders (De Pianofabriek, Brussels).
For this particular Poitiers-set-up, the lights we needed could not be provided by the festival, so we went with yet another solution proposed by David, the local light technician. We used:

– two cyclos with punched filters (1×120 + 1×027)

– 2 infrared strips that were costumized by Wendy & Matthias to illuminate the corners. Look at their report here.

The question that kept the technicians occupied for some time, was how to hang the camera high enough with a clear vision without having to remove beamers and spots that are necessary for the other performances. This is the festival spirit, there is no way that can move ‘the tower’ in between 2 performances.
