One of the other key challenges of this shoot, as with most, was time, and again the Rotolight Anova really came into its own. As well as featuring DMX as standard, the Anova incredibly also features its own in built Wifi Network allowing wireless remote control of brightness, colour temperature from an iPhone or iPad, which allows more time to create the perfect shot.  Using Rotolight’s Magic Eye iPhone App, the crew were able to control all of the lights in one hand and even create custom “Designer Fades” for the perfect fade to black first time round “We used the Canon C300 with prime lenses to capture the driver and static car shots in studio. The innovative iPhone Control feature of the Rotolight Anova was essential to create the right colour temperature for the final look and feel of the shot. The final films were to be shown on a 60 metre long screen, which meant capturing the raw footage in a crazy 6:1 ratio on set. This was certainly a challenge given the difference in scale of the drivers, cars and a race track, whilst only having a small amount of visual area to work in during filming. Everything was captured in HD to make sure the final quality wasn’t compromised” said Chapman. “Our end client was delighted with the finished films and I was very impressed by the Rotolight Anova, in particular how we were able to use it in environments where traditionally far more expensive solutions have been necessary. We look forward to using them again on our next production “ (Kevin Chapman, MD, MAKE Television) The Rotolight Anova is in stock and available to buy from Visual Impact(www.visuals. and CVP(, as well as to hire from VMI (, Hammerhead TV( and Alias Hire ( amongst many others.
