Arri M18 HMI with ballast

The Arri M18 HMI Lamphead (Sliver) is an open-face, lensless, more efficient lamphead built to work with a new power class of lamp - the 1800 W SE HMI (not included), which has an average life of 750 hours, a luminous efficacy of 92 lumens/watt and a Color Rendering Index (CRI) greater than 90 at 6000 K. DMX control and ALF (Active Line Filter) together produce much more efficient power use in an already very efficient lighting fixture. The M18 combines the best aspects of a PAR and a Fresnel, creating diverging rays of light to produce a very crisp shadow. This fixture is supplied for use with 90-125/180-250 V AC. This lamp has a beam angle (HPA) of 20 to 60 degrees, with a wide usable field angle. discounts available

super informative workshop that challenged me to think about lighting differently!

Equipment was in great condition, and super flexible! Not a lot of places you can return at on 8pm on a Sunday, so thank you, Luke for that.

Luke is the best! From the moment I picked up the Arri M18, he took time to help explain how to use it and was very thorough. He was also prompt on communication and very accommodating on the lighting rental.

Great class! Good info! Luke has some great experience and shares his insight. Good Demos and hands-on work. Might be nice to blast through a couple more set-ups.

March 2019

Good overview. Might like more tips and demos but understood it's hard to fit into a 2hr class.

This was more of a talk than a course, but it was interesting nonetheless.

Went with a friend and ran into some old contacts. Was an interesting mixer, Luke was charming and knowledgeable for sure. Felt like an appropriate price for a chill hangout with other BK filmmakers. Would love to catch another one, but I also think I have an idea for how these could be a bit more interactive without being intrusive..plz follow up. Thanks for a great time!

February 2019

This class was fun and informative. Luke had a direct, plainspoken way of sharing insights that had an overall effect of demystifying his lighting wizardry. I also took away some practical tips that I imagine I will keep forever. The mixer portion was a bit crowded, so I didn't stay long there. But overall, time and money well spent.

February 2019

A very thorough course on lighting for anyone with various levels of experience.

February 2019

Very informative!

February 2019

Very knowledgable and entertaining DP - a great start to the Kitsplit workshop series. I was expecting the class to be more hands on and was surprised that 80 or so people were there. Smaller classes that cover multiple lighting setups (that are shorter, more affordable) would be great!

February 2019

Amazing workshop, great to get some hands-on time instructed by an industry professional.

February 2019

Amazing workshop and learned so much about lighting from Luke! This is so worth it and thanks to Luke and Kitsplit!

February 2019

Great presentation!

February 2019

Great class! Would have preferred more actual lighting demonstrations, but Luke is a blast to learn from.

Packed with great tips and insights. Luke was so gracious to share all his hard earned knowledge.

Luke was a true professional! Gear worked perfect and pickup and drop-off were a breeze. Great resource for any of your production needs in Gowanus. Thanks again!

Luke was very helpful and flexible with arranging pickup and dropoff

Luke took excellent care of our gear. Despite the large amount of pieces involved everything came back extremely organized and in great condition. Friendly, punctual, and accommodating. Would be happy to rent to again!

Luke was very helpful and friendly. Renting from him for my first short was painless. I look forward to renting more from him. Thanks!
