Divergent - Movie Lighting

Cinematographer Alwin Küchler had really thought about the lighting that would be used in the futuristic cityscape where the Divergent film takes place.

A lot of time was spent thinking about how power was limited and the use of LED and low power light sources would be used to create some of the amazing sets.

Coldplay - Stage Lighting

In collaboration with Specialz, Surelight's EL wire, LED lighting and DMX controllers have been used to create the stage set lighting for Coldplay's worldwide Mylo Xyloto festival and stadium tour.

Misty Buckley, Art designer for Coldplay conceptualised the image of huge circular flowers behind the band on stage.

Aston Martin - Race Car Panels

Endurance races are tough and need technology suited to the demanding conditions.

Aston Martin turned to our Surelight EL panels and race car inverters to provide a paper thin light source that is ideal for night racing; light-weight, water resistant and with cars racing at over 200 miles per hour, highly durable.

Channel 4 - EL Wire Advertisements

Looking for something futuristic to attract the younger audiences their music festival adverts were aimed at, Channel 4 came to Surelight for some Electroluminescent (EL) Wire and inverters to power many meters.

EL wire is very effective on camera; it looks bright but doesn’t turn into heavy backlight.
