New DoPchoice Snap Bridge Models & Bluff Bounce Collaboration

At Cine Gear 2024 in Los Angeles, DoPchoice was showing new versions of its Snap Bridge system that were designed to be used with The LightBridge CRLS reflection panels as well as a collaboration with Bluff Bounce.

The first new product was a smaller sized version that can be used with the smaller CRLS reflection panels. These are handy if you don’t have a light with a very tight beam angle to prevent any spill from occurring.

The second version utilizes Bluff Bounce fabric.

If you are not familiar with Bluff Bounce, it was created by Danish cinematographer Nicholas Bluff. After moving to Brazil in 2019 and having to deal with a more harsh Brazilian sunlight, unlike the soft Scandinavian light, he spent a year testing and searching for fabrics to create a more natural way to bounce the light. Bluff Bounces are made to reflect the light in a more natural way than a white, silver or gold butterfly bounce would do. The white, silver and gold butterfly bounces were created at a time where film stocks really needed that extra punch to get the exposure. Bluff Bounces are great for the modern sensors and they bring more hues to the skin tones as well. The colors of the Bluff Bounces come into play with darker skin tones, as they can create some really beautiful colors.

The DoPchoice Snap Bridge Models are available in a range of Bluff Bounce colors.
