Uses Fill-Lite On The Neighborhood Pilot

Fill-Lite solves problems lighting tight sets.

Fill-Lite units showed up at the pilot shoot for The Neighborhood, so we put them through their paces. Roy and his gaffer,  slid the fixtures into tight spots, sometimes just inches from talent, and got the soft light they wanted in the shot. The fixtures quickly dropped in place to add soft lighting during night shots.

I love the Fill-Lite light. It’s built by an experienced gaffer who understands our daily problems. This is an exceptional light that is easily placed in the most difficult places. Very rugged and efficient. I highly recommend this light to all those who want to invest with a lighting manufacturer who listens to the end user. You can quote me….


IMG_5835 2 Roy Wagner ASC, Freddy Cintron, Fill-Lite The Neighborhood pilotTrue to the marketing materials, the highly-efficient Fill-Lite units slipped into tight spots and kept on shining. Only needing a couple of inches depth, Fill-Lite fixtures deliver a subtle punch “with an even spread with a nice fall-off,” according to Freddy.

IMDB says about The Neighborhood (TV series) – “Brooklyn mob soldier Benny Zerletta (played by William DeMeo) is torn between fulfilling his mother’s deathbed wish to seek guidance from above and the responsibility forced upon him as a made man of a powerful crime family.” The Neighborhood is written and directed by William DeMeo, this is DeMeo’s first directing credit and he is shooting in the familiar Brooklyn neighborhood where he grew up. The cast includes James Russo, Louis Lombardi, Paul Ben-VictorLeo RossiCorey Parker Robinson, and many others familiar from earlier mob and police dramas.
