Quasar Science Provides a Beacon of Light for Ember Films’ Refugium Theatrical Trailer

A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET) supplied Quasar Science RGB-X Rainbow linear LED fixtures to Ember Films, to provide ambience to increase the production values for the shoot of promotional film trailer, ‘Refugium’.

Ember – an Emmy Award-winning content creator devoted to crafting visually stunning imagery for Broadcast, Cinema and the Web – was approached by Canon to shoot a cinematographic film trailer using the brand’s new 4K digital camera, to showcase its quality and technical capabilities.

Ember’s creative team had the idea of creating a dystopian world which would emotionally engage the audience, as well as meeting Canon’s requirements. Ember storyboarded the trailer for ‘Refugium’, a film set in a near future in which humanity fights for survival as food chains have broken down and reserves have reached a critical low.

For the main set’s underground interrogation scene, Ember Creative Director, Jonathan Jones wanted to create a cyber sci-fi space where the actors were lit purely by incidental lighting.

Jonathan utilised eight Quasar Science RGB-X Rainbow fixtures to achieve the striking, neon-like soft lighting in the scene, with the output reflecting beautifully off the actors and the concrete surfaces.

Summarising his experience, he commented: “I had a vision of how I wanted the main scene to look and the Quasar lights really delivered. When we took the project into HDR with an output at 1000 nits, the overall tone of the image was epic. The fixtures really created an overall mood for the main scene between our two lead characters.”

He continued: “They are incredibly easy to fix in any position, the output quality is great and consistent, and they gave out a great soft light which was beautiful for skin tones.”

The Quasar Science fixtures were supplied by Ian Muir, Film & TV Development Manager for UK dealer, A.C. Entertainment Technologies. To arrange your personal demonstration contact the company on +44 (0)1494 446000 / sales@ac-et.com, or visit www.ac-et.com.
