The TorchLED TL-50 light provides the equivalent of 50 watts of 5600k daylight balanced light, up to 3 hours of operating time and is the only compact LED light fixture to include an integrated rechargeable battery pack. With the ability to run without cables, the TL-50 light can be used to provide multiple angles of light, achieving more depth and limiting shadows while filming. The light output can be easily controlled with the TL-50’s on-board dimmer. The replaceable lithium polymer battery charges in only 2 hours and each unit has 1/4-20 thread mounts on the top and bottom of the housing allowing it to mount virtually anywhere. With its brighter light output, quality constructed metal housing, internal lithium polymer battery, 3-stage battery meter, battery charger and standard CTO, 1/4 frost, and clear filter set, the TL-50 truly shines.
I wanted to share a few set construction pictures I took of the new Superman Movie that begins shooting next month. I only live a few miles from where the small town set is being built. When viewing these pictures, it looks like the buildings on the right side of the street were always there. In reality that’s all set! I will continue to add more pictures.
Last summer I was given the opportunity to be on set with director Michael Bay and actor Shia LaBeouf for TRANSFORMERS 3 “Dark of the Moon”. I wasn’t expecting to get a call back out of the 4000 people that attended the casting call.
Two-months went by before I got that call. I pretty much forgotten all about it! It was shocking to hear the girl on the other end of the line say…This is Amanda from Transformers 3 and I would like to know if you would like to be in our film? Now… for the people that know me, I’m a pretty big fan of Michael Bay’s films. I always told myself, I will some how in some way get on a Transformers set. Now I can’t tell you really anything about my scene, except this picture above shows where my scene was shot. I can tell you that I play an FBI Agent and that I got to act with Shia in the scene.
I had a chance to sit down with director Kevin Otterness a while back and talk about what he is up to and many other topics. We covered breaking into film, film education, whether film school is important or not, gear, and how to find and create story. For more information on what Kevin is up to, check out his blog, and/or follow him on twitter @KevinOtterness.

It was a nice and relaxing way to do an interview, Otterness said. We talk about how I started out in the film business to my small role in Transformers 3! I’m just like any other independent filmmaker out there! If I can inspire other filmmakers and tell an amazing story with cinematic visuals and great sound, then I have done my job! One thing I didn’t get to say in my interview was…If you are attending NAB in Vegas this year and you see me on the show room floor…please grab me and introduce yourself!!!
