**Germinal** is a 6 part television series lit by Cinematographer Xavier Dolléans who used the dedolight Lightstream system extensively on this production.
Comments below from Cinematographer, Xavier Dolléans, on working with the dedolight Lightstream system, specially the dedolight PB70, which is a 1200W parallel beam light; and also the dedolight DLH400 HMI and dedolight DLED 10 with parallel beam intensifiers.
“The DPB70 is very powerful and consumes only 1200W. Its light power is much higher than that of a Molebeam 1200. And above all, what is very interesting is its "parallel beam" reflector, which acts on the light beam by making it parallel to the output of the projector, giving the impression that the projector is located "at infinity", at least 20 m behind the position where it is actually located. “
“We also use the DPBA range on Dedolight 400 HMI or on DLED 10. It is an optical system from the Lightstream range that amplifies the light beam optically by making it also parallel to the output of the projector (Parallel Beam Intensifier). I have to say that I got used to the very natural and powerful rendering of the beams, perfectly adapted to our desires of hard and intense light beams.”
“So the DPB70 has become for me the very concentrated projector that I can use in bounce on ceilings, in tunnels, churches, barns, all large volumes where classical cutouts are too small. It is very powerful and precise at the same time.”
“Dedolights Lightstream range (Parallel Beam, Parallel Beam Intensifier, mirrors) allows me to work the way I like to work in light: by mixing very hard and intense live beams with reflections on multiple surfaces, allowing me to constantly maintain the balance between hardness and softness, which is so dear to me.”
Thanks Cartoni France and Xavier Dolléans!
