Lighting the way to Sustainability

Summary

Sargent-Disc's partner, BAFTA albert, hosted a sustainable lighting seminar in July with panellists from the film and lighting industry.

Lighting the way to Sustainability

 

Lighting the way to Sustainability, the second of the BAFTA albert Quarterlies took place on Thursday 12th July at Bafta chaired by Aaron Matthews and with a panel including Gavin Finney, Roger Williams, Steve Howard and Vanessa Whyte. The event brought together the lighting community to examine the progress made so far, and to question the way forward. Aaron (BAFTA albert) kicked off the discussion with facts about the industry's carbon emissions- every hour of television produced emits 13 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

 

The panel explained how the benefits of LED lights contribute to reducing carbon emissions on production. LED lights use less power and therefore require smaller generators, which in turn reduce the need for air con on set as they generate less heat. Vanessa showed the audience a make up commercial that she worked on which made use of LED lighting. She highlighted the financial benefit of less make up being used as the location was a cooler than it would have been with non-LED lights. The models were also a lot more comfortable throughout, which made the shoot a easier to complete. Vanessa also cited the flexibility and efficiency of LEDs for low budget productions. If there has not been time for a recce, it is quick and easy to fix a sky panel to the wall and match the colour and brightness correctly.

 

In order to maintain the authenticity of the Tudor era, Gavin filmed everything for Wolf Hall by candlelight and firelight. Nominated for Best Photography and Lighting at the BAFTA Television Craft Awards, the production did incorporate artificial lighting at times when the cast could not be seen clearly by candlelight. Gavin used Kino Flo Celebs LEDs because they are bi-colour, can be dialled from daylight to tungsten and dim down to 1%. Aside from the financial benefit, using LEDs also proved to be a safer option when used in close proximity to fabrics on set.

 

When referring to carbon savings made by steps taken already to reduce emissions, Aaron pointed out that ITV's Victoria reduced their carbon spend by 83% by choosing LED lighting. This also gave them the added benefit of lower financial spend on the energy needed to power the lights.

 

The panel emphasised the significance of educating the entire industry as to the benefits of using LEDs on production in order to encourage the use of sustainable technology. Employees at all levels, from HODs, to the directors must understand the creative, practical and financial benefits in order to understand the need to change methods of creating film and television. Vanessa and Steve spoke in detail about the creation of the Ness Light, from its initial inception when a battery powered light was needed for a small film in Thailand, to its development as different versions are built to improve the quality. It is important to highlight the need to continue to improve the technology available now to ensure that the creative elements of a shoot will not be hindered, discouraging more productions from choosing LED in the future.
