Billerica TV Kitchen Studio

In the heart of Billerica Access Television's renovated space, a new era of community broadcasting emerges with the inauguration of the Billerica TV Kitchen Studio. Housed within an old-school building, this studio is anything but traditional. Designed and installed by JML Lighting, Jonathan brought this vision to life. Adapting an old-school building for modern video production presented unique challenges, including integrating complex lighting, accommodating diverse users, incorporating lighting fixtures that are inconspicuous and effective, and ensuring suitable lighting for both close-ups and wider shots.

The Fiilex Track System emerged as the lights in shining armour for this project. Its easy installation, sleek white finish, and user-friendly P3X lights with softboxes addressed the myriad of challenges. The system's color control feature, flexibility, hue control, remote adjustments, and LED technology kept the kitchen cool and allowed tailored lighting solutions for each production's unique needs. Under the expert guidance of Jonathan Lipsy, the Billerica TV Kitchen Studio is now a beacon of community broadcasting, proving that with the right technology, even the most unconventional spaces can become hubs of creativity and collaboration.

Lighting Design Details

This studio required a lighting solution that evenly lit the talent and culinary subjects while registering well on multiple camera angles in the 16'W × 14'L × 10'H space. With the talent's skin tone, and shooting requirements for tight culinary shots as well as wider kitchen views, high-quality and versatile lighting was a necessary yet challenging component to implement in the low-ceilinged space. The Fiilex Track System with P3X lights and softboxes provided an ideal solution - its color control, hue adjustment, and flexibility allowed the lighting designer to tailor the illumination for each production's unique needs, ensuring an optimal ambiance for both close-ups and wide shots without constant adjustments. The sleek, unobtrusive system respected the studio's aesthetic while providing even, high-quality lighting that showcased the talent's best look on camera.
