Sky Fortitude

Our expertise in filming and lighting using the invisible infra red spectrum 940nm, was put to the test again recently in a promo for Sky's second series of 'Fortitude'. Blindeye Films director Jack Lightfoot wanted to ramp up the fear factor for the new series in filming in a pitch-black room. The Prime Television team lit the event space with both conventional lighting as well as various levels of infrared lighting. The difficulty in shooting in the higher light wavelength is the higher the wavelength, the lower the light intensity, so we used over twenty different infra red lights in this production. To capture the infrared filming we used a combination of our Panasonic UE-70 remote control cameras and our Canon XF105 cameras, which captured all the menacing actors from the series scaring the punters from Peckham perfectly.
