Illumination Dynamics was once again proud to supply and support the lighting package for The AMC television series Turn: Washington’s Spies Season 3. Turn was shot in and around The Richmond, VA area including Historic Williamsburg and Petersburg, from November 2015 until February 2016. The show went extremely well, and ID looks forward to another season. Best Boy Electric, Wade Tyree, shares his thoughts on ID’s service of the project. “Out in the battlefields of the revolutionary war, in the forest amongst nature, or in the comforts of our soundstage our weapons of choice come from Illumination Dynamics.
As crew on season 3 of Turn: Washington’s Spies, we are constantly being challenged by the weather, the locations, and even the demands of the show. We line up our army, prepare for battle, and gather our equipment.
Timeliness, Efficiency, and reliability are words you could use to describe the set lighting crew and how they operate on Turn…but it can also be how you describe the rental house that you work with.
Part of your crew is your rental house…and any department is only as good as their weakest link. From quick turn-a-rounds, to going over and above the call of duty, Illumination Dynamics continues to deliver the goods every time.
If you need to fix something; they will support you. When you need a specialty light tomorrow; they will ship it. Need a reasonable quote for gear; it’ll be in your hand the next day. Source it locally or ship it in from across the country, when you have offices and support staff from Charlotte to LA that are part of an elite group associated with ARRI you have the world of lighting at your fingertips.
Our locations are non-conventional. Deliveries are made to the middle of fields on historic plantations and battlefields. Sets take us from the rolling hill sides of Virginia to downtown Petersburg; city life. Our needs change daily, but the expectations never do.
ID continually marches to the rescue, so we can light the set and capture the minds of our audiences across America, making make-believe a reality. Without light, it’s only radio and the adventure is not experienced to its fullest.”
