Another fascinating documentary, looking into professional lighting by Rick Young on Movie Machine. Dedolight have been referred to as the most innovative lighting system ever developed for motion picture and television. These lights are rugged, dimmable, can be dropped without destroying the lamp, many are bi-colour and many feature an internal focussing system – allowing for a strong clean beam without stray light.

The dedolight system has been recognised by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences with a Technical Achievement Award in 1990; a Cinec award in 2002, and an Academy Scientific and Engineering Award and Emmy Award in 2003.

Simply put, for the cinematographer the tools offered by dedolight are a must. These lights have been used widely for feature film production, commercials, documentaries, in television studios, and for still and DSLR work. Dedolights are used wherever quality images are required.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

One thought on “The master of lighting Dedo Weigert let’s us into some cinematic secrets.

  1. The most annoying thing I find is that the widest setting on them is not wide enough – the light never spreads enough :-(. Great if you are filming in a barn, not much good in an office.
