Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit Soars With Freddie Wong

Freddie Wong's YouTube channel FreddieW is one of the most watched in the new age of web content. Between FreddieW and his new site, there have been over half a billion video views to date.
To feed the excitement, Wong needs to keep the content coming. One of the things that helps him get the most out of his shoots is Litepanels new Sola ENG Kit."We're very run-and-gun in a variety of environments," Wong said, "and we rarely have time to map out the power grid at wherever we're shooting, or often times simply don't have access to it. Litepanels LED lights allow us to plug in and move quickly, not incur huge amounts of heat, and are lightweight and portable enough to be brought along to everything we do.
"Recently, we had the opportunity to interview Timur Bekmambetov [Director of Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter] in conjunction with one of our videos we did on the channel. Our Sola ENG Kit saved us," he explained. "We had a very narrow window of time to shoot the thing and we were shooting in the post production offices of ALVH, literally as the movers were putting all the furniture into the trucks. The Sola ENG let us throw up a kit quickly without any danger of tripping a breaker somewhere in this building that was being torn apart all around us, and we were able to get the interview done quickly and efficiently.
"We also do most of our behind-the-scenes interviews lit primarily with the Sola ENG Kit on stands," he added. "Once again, we are grabbing our writers and crew for quick interviews and the kit allows us to have a very mobile lighting set up for sound bites and interviews."
Because Wong is always on the move, his gear has to be easy to set up and break down and transport. The Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit's wheeled case is so compact it can be carried onto a plane. Not only does this save him time, it assures him that vital gear will reach the location when he does. The Sola ENG kit includes three Sola ENG Fixtures, three Gel Kits, three stands, mounts, adapters, barndoors, AC/DC power supplies, and a softbox and diffusion.
