Lights 2 is a short film commissioned by FujiFilm Japan to demo it's new motion picture filmstock Eterna 500.
Conceived by Director/Producer Marcus Dillistone (above right), the film was written to show the filmstock in numerous different lighting scenarios, from daylight to near darkness.
The film was shot by four leading cinematographers: Phedon Papamichael ASC, Sue Gibson BSC, Ron Stanett CSC, and the Oscar winning legend, Jack Cardiff BSC OBE.
When Jack (90) filmed the scenes with Sir John Mills (Above left) (96), the combined age of lead actor and cinematographer was 186 years - a cinema record!
The 35mm film had to be technically perfect as well as creatively engaging. It is on release to audiences throughout the film making world, from Hollywood to London, Tokyo, Paris, etc.
Lights2 was made possible with support from key film industry suppliers, including:
Glory extends its thanks to the above for supplying a consistenly first rate service.
