Caso Brings Litepanels to New Series – “The Defenders”


Litepanels, a Vitec brand, announces that cinematographer Alan Caso ASC (Lie to Me, Big Love, Trauma) has again chosen Litepanels for his new series, The Defenders. The CBS one-hour drama centers on the personal and professional lives of two very different Las Vegas Lawyers.

“I’ve been using Litepanels for about four years now,” says Caso. “They are small, compact, and have a lot of punch. They fit into places that other lights of equivalent luminance can’t fit. I have two 1×1 panels and two bricks on The Defenders, and they are working all the time.”

The Defenders is not your staid, courtroom bound legal series. The characters are bigger than life – and that includes the city of Las Vegas and the casinos that are such a big fabric of the town. Caso and company may be shooting flamboyant locations with a lot of flash, but he is always in need of that extra kick or flattering light. “That’s where Litepanels are so important,” he says. “I can get a soft source out of small corners or inside a car. Litepanels are always my saving grace.

“I remember when we were shooting Trauma and we were often in a green screen process helicopter sequences,” he recalls. “Litepanels fit easily in those hard-to-fit areas in the helicopter to provide small source lighting. It worked quite well.”
