Glasses for the TV & Film Industry
Let's get things straight. Glasses are a cameraman's nightmare!
You set up all of the cameras, and all of the lighting.. You get it prepared so that it's perfectly set up for when the talent arrives.. and wait.. they're wearing glasses!!!
Shock, horror, disaster!
You set up the rig making the assumption that they will have no glasses on, or that they’ll be wearing contact lenses or something.. but no.. they turn up wearing these highly reflective pieces of plastic in front of their eyes.. time to start from scratch.
Or is it?
Normally, glasses are a huge obstacle for camera crews to overcome. Even if the client has a standard anti-reflection coating on the lenses, let alone highly reflective uncoated lenses, the reflections caused by these lenses can be a huge issue.
Enter the "No Reflection" lenses supplied by The Eyewear Stylist in MediaCityUK, Manchester!
Recently invented in Japan, these "No Reflection" lenses remove as much reflection as is physically visible to the human eye from the lenses, and whilst it's impossible to remove 100% of reflections, the effects are dramatic! Watch the video below to learn more..
