Matt Macar: All About Color Accuracy

With a background as a VFX compositor and colorist, cinematographer Matthew Macar has no time for color spikes and abnormalities that are commonplace with standard LED lighting. He’d much rather control the light in-camera. So he understands the benefits of BB&S remote phosphor LED lights. He’s the first one to tell you that to him its “All about color accuracy.” Whether its commercial, narrative, music videos or documentary projects, “ When I put these lights on the talent I know the color will be right.”  

His go-to tool kit consists of an Area 48 that he’s used for three years and still counting. Plus he packs along a Pipeline one-foot. “Its my multi-tool. No matter how big or small I can do whatever is needed with those two compact fixtures.”
