Kaspar gets a call from Greig Fraser asking if we have any new lights to show to him. We do, but it is no where near ready. This kind of opportunity does not come every day, so we accept the challenge and get focused. With last bits of code written in the airplane, the light is ready to be given to Greig.
MEETING GREIG FRASER
A bit of nervous laughs and moments after we are in Berlin. We see the shoot happening from a distance. Greig is excited to see our product; he has a few of DS systems himself. Greig is one of the first cinematographers who used DS lights and he has trusted us all these years. He has questions about modularity, possibility of screen and button on the back cover, lightweight and other features that are or going to included in our Apollo 1.
LIGHT IT UP
After the visual checkup, it was time to plug our Apollo in and see what it can do. And It works without a glitch! We do not have a user interface yet, one of the Apollos is missing a back cover, but they work just as wanted. Everything goes smoothly and soon enough we see our baby on the set, lighting up Greig Frasers shoot!
As I mentioned, there is no User Interface for it made yet, so we are always ready to take Apollo and bring it to the set to set it up. It was so fun to see it used and be able to move so quickly with it. In a sea of wifi connections, Apollo has no connection problems, V- mount created on that same morning works and lets us use the light with no cables. We are so happy! And quite tired. Good work is rewarded with good sleep.
