Cagoule Productions

Our Hire Team helped a cutting-edge video production company achieve a dark and compelling look for a pop video.

Project Details

Completion: October 2010
Location: Edinburgh
Client: Cagoule Productions
Kit List
  • Selecon Acclaim 650W Fresnels.
  • Arri 650W Fresnels.
  • ETC Source 4 Juniors
  • Selecon 1.2kW Fresnels.
  • KinoFlos.

The video was for for up-coming Scottish band Kid Adrift. The video’s lighting designer had worked closely with us in the past and knew he could rely on Black Light to deliver the equipment he needed quickly and at the high standard expected by Video Production companies.
  • We received the client order and prepared a quotation.
  • We turned the order round in one day.
  • We supplied all the lighting for the video production.

Results
The video, which was made by Edinburgh-based Cagoule Productions, was for Kid Adrift’s latest single A4 in Ecstasy. It features two boxers battling it out in a down-at-heel ring. It is a powerful piece that is lit in a starkly monochromatic style to emphasize the cinematic aspect of the boxers’ moves and to mirror the atmospheric and energetic music.


Feedback
The Lighting Director, Martin Palmer, was particularly pleased with the fast turnaround that we achieved on his hire order. "After attending a meeting on Thursday evening and then doing a recce of the location, I realized that I had to work fast to get the dark and stylish look my client needed, as the shoot was for Sunday," he says. Martin phoned us on Friday and was able to collect the equipment on the next day for an afternoon set up. "The Black Light teamresponded well to my needs, turning the equipment and the quotation around very quickly. This made for an easy shoot and a great result," he said.
