Airstar, camera, action
QATAR: A pair of Airstar Gaffair 1.2K HMI lighting balloons were called into action for the recent production of a commercial for the new Es'hailSat Qatari satellite. The manufacturer’s lighting balloons are regularly used for TV and film productions as they reportedly provide ‘non-glaring, natural and efficient lighting’.
For this shoot, the first of the Gaffairs was on the main production Dhow while the second was on a supporting speedboat. The main challenge for the production came from the windy conditions. However, the lighting quality was said to enable a faster shoot.
