Zylight F8 LED Fresnels were chosen by DOP Terry Stewart to shoot out of the back of a car when following “Iron Man” competitors in Hawaii recently. He commented that he wanted an LED with some punch that could run off a battery. It was a huge time-saver for him.
Emmy award winning DOP Terry Stewart specialises in major sporting events and has shot Iron Man on 22 consecutive occasions. The event days have a gruelling production schedule starting at sunrise and ending at midnight. The natural light of course changes greatly throughout the day. With sunset at about 6pm several hours shooting at night are involved. He also has to be prepared to cover 2000 athletes with differing abilities over a large area. Crews often drive in front of competitors to shoot the action. This is where the Zylight F8 proved so beneficial.
