Christmas Lights is a short film produced for the Central Christian Church 2012 Christmas program. It's a video using non verbal communication to demonstrate an important theme at Christmas time; love and family.
This video was filmed in Las Vegas, over about 4 hours in the evening. I was only able to utilize one light source, and that was the Kino Barfly 200. We had to improvise using natural light from interiors, houses, and other ambient light sources. The day of filming, I ran to Home Depot and picked up a few small LED hand lights, which acted as rim and backlighting during a few of the medium shots, especially on the street scene.
