ON LOCATION – VIETNAM

BUILDING LARGE, SOFT SOURCES WITH TRUCOLOR HS™

Shooting outdoors in Vietnam could prove to be a daunting experience for any DP, but for Trevor Forrest, setting up to shoot scenes for “Noble” (the Christina Noble biopic), gaffer Eddie Knight brought his years of experience in difficult locations to bear.

Knight (whose credits are too deep to list here), chose to use TruColor HS to fill this scene and numerous other shots throughout the production.

“The soft strong light of the TruColor HS worked beautifully to fill an entire car scene in Vietnam, while we used a hard M18 HMI to raise the temperature and contrast to mimic the Vietnamese heat.

We had a great time in some challenging places, and the HS was used in most of them to give the reality of Vietnam a little polish and beauty whenever we could.”
