theC47 Book Light Kit provides superior light modification for interviews and narratives. By placing any light source near the opening of the Book Light, filmmakers and cinematographers can simultaneously bounce and diffuse their light.
The Book Light Kit features two 4' x 6' Scrim Jim Cine modular frames. These frames connect together to form a book-like configuration with the included hinge connectors. These connectors allow for effortless placement and adjustment of the Book Light.
After more than 20 years in the filmmaking industry, producer and director Jem Schofield recognized the need for easily-accessible production education. Outside of sharing his knowledge through workshops and seminars, Jem founded online educational website theC47.
TheC47.com offers free and comprehensive equipment overviews and forums for anyone interested in the art of video production. After releasing the Scrim Jim Cine system, we partnered with Jem to create 2 versatile and customizable kits, theC47 Book Light Kit and theC47 DP Kit.
This kit includes a reversible silver/white bounce fabric and a reversible unbleached muslin/black fabric giving you the ability to customize the appearance of your light source. Soften the output with either the included 3/4-stop diffusion silk diffuser or 1/2-stop grid cloth.
For filmmakers and photographers who want total control of their lighting, Scrim Jim Cine frame components are available individually to build the lighting tools of your dreams.
Scrim Jim Cine 1-inch tubes are constructed with anodized aluminum which can withstand heavy abuse on set while maintaining a lightweight form. Connectors feature a positive-locking system which keeps your frame builds in-tact throughout your shoot while still being easily removable for quick teardown and setup.
Scrim Jim Cine fabrics feature hook-and-loop edging for instant placement on frames with corner security tabs to ensure mounting even on windy locations.
“It's all about versatility and with the multiple fabrics available and sizes the Scrim Jim Cine is the one light control I always have in my bag.”
Eric Eggly, Top Pro Elite Photographer
“The Scrim Jim Cine is the most versatile modifier I have. I quickly change the material to customize any lighting need, from diffused, reflective or subtractive lighting. I also use it to create a bay of soft light by placing flash heads behind. When explored, truly an invaluable tool for any photographer.”
Hernan Rodriguez, Top Pro Elite Photographer
“The Scrim Jim Cine really saves the day for location shoots. I can use it to turn the sun into a beautiful softbox. No more harsh lighting on those shoots that have to take place at the wrong time of day.”
Terry White, Top Pro Elite Photographer
“Scrim Jim are the most versatile and best designed of them all. They have the widest selection of panels and the reflection materials produce a nice soft light. Other brands are to reflective and tend to be very harsh.”
Ted Wilson, DP Review
“I've used scrims for years, since my days as a commercial photographer. They naturally made their way in to my portrait photography as well and there is no better way to achieve soft, window-like light from just about any light source. Diffuse the sun, a flash, even an LED light. Use them as soft reflectors. They are your true portable window light.”
Kevin Kubota, Top Pro Photographer
“This reflective surface is the one of the keys to my success as a Hollywood portrait photographer. I have this reflective surface in multiple collapsible reflectors as well as in multiple sizes for my Scrim Jim Cine system.”
Vincent Versace, Top Pro Photographer
“Provides a portable bounce card needed on a commercial automotive and marine shoots.”
Chris Garrison, Top Pro Photographer
“What you get is a nice, big rectangular reflector that is basically the size of a model in heels. Perfect if you ask me.”
Dana Pennington, Breed
“I have been using Scrim Jim for over 15 years and they're still the most versatile photography equipment I own. I wouldn't even consider going on a location shoot without it.”
Ed Pierce, Photography by Edward Pierce
“While on location in Congo it was imperative to carry light weight gear that offerd easy set up. The Westcott Scrim Jim was the perfect way to modify a large surface area of light. The translucent fabric created a soft contrast in the harsh Jungle mid day sun. The Scrim Jim is durable and reliable.”
Randy Kerr, Top Pro Photographer
