Studio Design and Lighting


Studio Lighting Design and Installation

Cirro Lite have many years of experience in design, installation and training. Our ethos is to work properly to a brief by providing the correct types of solution appropriate for any particular studio. Our area of experience covers News, Commercial and Drama studios all of which have different requirements. Our experience with new technology is right up to date (we are currently showing some of the best and latest LED Lighting systems), we work very closely with some of the best manufacturers in the industry.

Regardless of the size of the project or quality of camera package, lighting is a key to achieving professional and compelling images. The two areas of planning that can sometimes be given less than adequate budget and thought are set design and lighting design. Without these areas being executed well regardless of how much has been invested images and operational efficiencies will suffer - we aim to provide solutions that work!

Planning & Budget

Regardless of size of project it is a good idea to have some idea of the setup you will be shooting. Will it have a set or a simple background or chroma screen? If it has a set it will help in the process of planning the studio if these ideas are shared with the lighting designer as early as possible. This will ensure that the budget is effectivley spent and will avoid unnessary waste. It will also help provide the most appropriate equipment and ensure the best images.

If your studio does not require a set, do you have a background or logo? Do you require branding or are you shooting against black? All of these scenarios will help to advise on the best combination of equipment to achieve problem free images.

Case Studies


That Lot - Social Content Agency studio lighting project

The client needed a very flexible studio space built within the iconic building 2 Waterhouse square, Holborn, so that they could create content onsite. The studio needed to deliver an easy to use high quality green screen space with the ability to quickly convert the space into any number of “looks” and setups. The studio needed to have an element of plug and play built so that quick turnarounds could be achieved without compromising quality.

Middlesex University London - VR studio lighting project

We were asked to design the lighting for Virtual Reality studio around the existing green screen setup. Only the lighting for the screen and floor was needed and the customer intended to use their existing keys and fills.

Due to the nature of the studio the lighting had to have a very good colour rendering, be very even and output had to be constant at any given colour temperature.
