“Technological advancements are, of course, a major driver for studios looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Screen Gems’ “Think Like a Man” was the first major studio film shot entirely using LED lighting. But LED has really taken off in the past few years, quickly becoming a standard, reducing the amount of power needed and keeping sets cooler.
“Our sets get more efficient as we keep getting more LED lighting and our power needs [decrease], and then we’re able to power for that by things like solar on the stages,” Bart says.
NBC/Universal recently acquired Cineo Lighting and continuously invests in LED. This year, Cineo will release a hard light product called Reflex, which will be much more energy-efficient compared to lights currently used to create the same effect.”
