The sensory calming quiet room at Our Lady of the Prairies Elementary School in Edmonton on Jan 8, 2016. The room is a getaway from the noise and buzz of an ordinary classroom, an important break for students who may feel overwhelmed by a busy day. It is also a place for students who have outbursts to calm down in private before returning to their peers in class. Video by Ryan Jackson, Edmonton Journal

I loved making this video! Ryan Ford is a really cool guy and lives up to his nickname.
The interview was shot with a Sony FS7 with a Sigma 35mm f1.2 and a Panasonic GH4 with a Canon 100mm f2.8L Macro.
I lit the interview with six LED lights. A Dedolight DLED4.1 as the key on the right, LEDgo 560C as a fill on the left, Dedolight 2.1 and LedZilla as rim lights, and a couple small LitePanels as background detail lights.
We arrived at the gym an hour before the interview to set everything up and dress the background. All the action shots were lit with a bare bulb Dedolight 4.1 set to tungsten.
