Lightcycle is an artist-designed room where a 24-hour cycle of light will be shown off in a 10-minute light show created by DoPs, lighting directors and gaffers.
The 27th International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, EnergaCAMERIMAGE, considered unique by many, is a great forum not only for presentation but also for further development of international moviemaking. EnergaCAMERIMAGE helps young filmmakers and integrates the community of those already recognized, allowing them to explore new artistic areas. Is it also an event where art and technology meet creating a unique and unforgettable atmosphere.
For the 27th edition of EnergaCAMERIMAGE, Lightbridge has prepared a new concept. Held in the Centre of Contemporary Art in Torun November 9-15, 2019, just a five minute walk from the main exhibition, the Light!Room will allow cinematographers to explore lighting in a uniquely artistic environment.
24 hours cycle of light in 10 minutes
According to Lightbridge, the centerpiece of the exhibition is the Lightcycle— an artist-designed room where a 24-hour cycle of light (night, morning, day, evening and magic hour) will be shown off in a 10-minute light show using the CRLS Cine Reflect Lighting System, BB&S Lighting fixtures, DoPchoice Snapbags, Gaffers Control and Rosco’s SoftDrop.
The Lightbridge invites DoPs, lighting directors and gaffers to relight the different times of day as part of the art installation—so what happens on one festival day will look different from the next! Adjacent to the Lightcycle a hands-on area is open to visitors who want to test the same type of tools that create the exhibition.
Master classes and round tables
Based on the fundamental belief that the most valuable lighting tool is the DoP’s unique way of seeing the world, Lightbridge hosts Light!Room a creative resource where lighting people from all paths can search, discuss and exchange experiences, thoughts and interests. Through this collaborative process the most revolutionary tools can evolve. The Cine Reflect Lighting System is an example, forged from the work of DP Christian Berger in collaboration with his gaffer Jakob Ballinger who founded The Lightbridge.
The Lightbridge will also host a number of round tables and master classes featuring prominent DoPs and gaffers— all focused on the topic of light. These include: CRLS creator Christian Berger AAC, Checco Varese ASC, and Alan Jacobsen, as well as gaffers John Roche, Frank Omo and Lightbridge founder Jakob Ballinger.
