That's a Wrap - CINEMILLS Promo Video Shoot

Last Friday, CINEMILLS completed it's very first company promo shoot at the Media Center. This video will be part of our newly redesigned website  It will give our viewers a real perspective of the space and the offerings available.

Planning for this video shoot took about three weeks in the making. Our biggest obstacle was scheduling all the extras and crew together. Alas, Director and Producer, Michael McDevitt along with the assistance of Amy Stierasuta they were able to make it happen.

Here are some pictures from the shoot.

CINEMILLS Demoed 1200/1800W PAR-NEL Lighting at a Major Studio

CINEMILLS recently demoed our 1200/1800W PAR-NEL lighting, at a major studio. We were thrilled to be invited in the back lot and be part of the experience! Spectators of the tour passed by Stage 44, and they got a glimpse of the new CINEMILLS CINEMINI.

The CMC 1200/1800W HMI was born from the ingenuity of the industry 'stand-by', 1200 watt HMI PAR; CINEMILLS introduces the next generation in high output, 'household' HMI 'big guns'. The 12/18 PARNEL® is the perfect blend of PAR output and Fresnel focus-ability in one, low cost and convenient product. The CINEMILLS patent pending, PARNEL® reflector was engineered to take your household lighting package to the next level. With a 1200W, single-ended (SE) globe, the PARNEL® gives approximately 1/2 stop of additional output for the same 15 amps of input power required by a traditional 1200W PAR. When the new 1800W, single ended (SE) globe is employed - together with the Power Gems 575/1200/1800W electronic ballast - you get the best power factor correction in the industry, at 17 amps of input power, together with the brightest 'wall power' performance in the CINEMILLS line. The CMC 12/18 PARNEL® is the perfect fixture for low budget or digital content film makers.
