I love this Fiilex light kit. I had occasion to get it for a shoot overseas in Paris since I needed a something compact and portable but with lots of flexibility.

Filmakr creator George Spyros shoots an interview and demo with Rod Aaron Gammons of Rotolight — using a Rotolight! And of course also using Filmakr the all-in-one camera editing app solution…
Short films made with a single video camera app
George shot on his trusty iPhone 6S+ 4K 100 Mbps. The RL48 LED ringlight was mounted on the Beastgrip Pro via a Beastgrip cold shoe mount. A Filmakr custom preset was created for this series of films. The 4K to 1080p preset included a Music Bed, Intro / Outro titles and Intro Bumper. After he shot the interview, he then he recorded all the slow motion b-roll footage. He edited by slicing the interview clips and removing unwanted sound bites. After rearranging the sound bites to tell the story, he used Filmakr’s drag-and-drop b-roll to illustrate the interview.
