Ira Cohen Gaffer for Steven Poster, ASC, Reviews Cinemills Cinesoft

"I'm Ira Cohen, Gaffer, working in the Film Industry for over 30years... I came across your new product, CineSoft 2x2, working with Steven Poster ASC, on the pilot, "Hemlock Grove", for Gaumont Films. From this point on, the Cinesoft will stand as a fixture on all my future projects." Cohen wrote. 

Ira Cohen recently provided Cinemills testimonials for the Cinemills Cinesoft LED Luminaires. This is the second part, of our two blog post, see Steven Poster finds the Cinemills Cinesoft an effective tool.

Cohen wrote, "A true workhorse when shootin digital on an episodic series... Simplicity of use and design, the 2x2 with it's large footprint usually is the first light called for... The two 2x2 units Steven Poster ASC tested on our show have never faltered, producing a luminance of working quailty, heat free and minimal power draw...Your remote is an nice feature, allowing control of the CT+Intensity once the fixture is set."

ICG President Steven Poster, ASC, Finds Cinemills Cinesoft an Effective Tool

Steven Poster, ASC

"Now that I am almost done with this episode of what I know is going to be a fantastic series, I have one more day, I have to say that the Cinesofts have been a very effective tool for us," Poster wrote while in production in Canada.

Cinemills was very excited to hear the latest testimonial from one of Hollywood's top cinematographers, International Cinematographers Guild president,  Steven Poster, ASC.

Poster wrote, "The broad, soft quality and the punch of the light makes it a terrific tool for this new era of shooting at higher acceptable exposure indexes. The Cinesoft becomes a "big Light" in these circumstances, without much footprint and without much power needed. That's important."

Cinemills first met with Steven Poster, in Cinegear 2012, at the Paramount Studios. He was discussing with the team about the up-coming project he had that was going to be filmed in Canada.
