With Astora lights you can make any type of film, anywhere, with any crew and camera. Our features packed lights are super bright, strong and mobile, enabling you to only be limited to your imagination.
To prove this we challenged five young filmmakers to make a short film. We gave them full creative freedom, but also several obstructions to overcome. We sent them to the middle of nowhere, forced them to work with multiple cameras or light an entire studio with a single light. We were confident in the outcome, but the resulting films exceeded our expectations.
The Astora lights pack all you need in a sturdy package. Lots and lots of brightness, top level color reproduction, silent cooling, wireless remote control, V-lock battery mounts, all in one strong light weight metal housing.
Set it up, turn it on, and action!

We gave five young filmmakers full creative freedom to make a short film, along with a limited budget and limited time and random obstructions to disrupt their normal process. Each of the five films turned out completely different. They are a testament to creativity of the filmmakers and shows the versatility of our lights.
From a small studio talk show to a short drama and further into art, fashion, thriller, anything is possible.

Sanja Marusic used two PS 1300 lights. The brightest possible.

We asked Sanja Marusic to shoot a film in the middle of nowhere. She then went to Death Valley in California, only assisted by her husband. Joey de Leeuw shot his film in the dunes of Calais in France and on the other end of the spectrum were Sem Voortman who made a tiny set in a workshop and Kurt Platvoet who ended up making his film in his kitchen and backyard. It doesn’t matter where you shoot. Astora lights are easy to set up anywhere and make it look good.

Every camera handles light differently, so to show what the Astora lights can do we challenged Kurt to film with four different cameras. As his primary camera he used an Arri 35mm film camera, but then also used an iPhone, a drone and a Canon DSLR. Only the resolution changes, never the quality of the film.
