Rental house Pixipixel has added 40 Titan X2 and X1 cinematic lights from Rotolight to its inventory. Pixipixel offers rental equipment in camera, lighting and grip, serving commercials, music promos, television and film productions across the UK.
Recent credits include TV dramas such as Behind Her Eyes (Netflix), I Hate Suzie (Sky) and Save Me Too (Sky Atlantic), as well as feature film The Courier starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
The Rotolight Titan family of LED soft lights utilises RGBWW technology and features the latest generation Lumenradio CRMX as standard. Additional highlights include SmartSoft technology, which enables users to electronically adjust Titan’s diffusion, focus and spread without the need for gels.
Steve Knight, CEO at Pixipixel, said: “We’re very excited to have made a new investment to expand our LED lighting inventory with the Rotolight Titans. The Titan X2 panels are packed with numerous features that will be appreciated by cinematographers and gaffers, and the X1s are great for stills photographers and filmmakers. I’m very pleased we have added these to Pixipixel’s offering.”
Leading gaffer Howard Davidson, who has now joined the team at Pixipixel, recently wrapped period feature film The Colour Room, lit extensively with Rotolight Titan X1 and X2s. He said: “The Rotolight Titans have been a workhorse, they just slid into my workflow on set seamlessly and that was really important. Their CRMX implementation is fantastic and the user interface is also really terrific, and very easy for people to use for the first time.”
Johnny Colley, director of lighting at Pixipixel, said: “The Rotolight Titans are a great addition to our lighting department. Versatile, easy to rig and manoeuvre, and with 16.7 million colours to work with, these offer a lot of flexibility and creative possibilities. The intuitive full-colour touchscreen display will enable filmmakers and photographers to set up fast and save time on set.”
Rod Aaron Gammons, CEO of Rotolight, said: “We’re delighted with Pixipixel’s investment in the Titan cinematic lights and look forward to partnering with them to bring them to gaffers and DOPs on their upcoming productions. Pixipixel is renowned for investing in the best technology the industry has to offer and outstanding customer service, so we’re delighted to be joining their arsenal of great products.”
