Rosco's latest addition to its Supergel range of lighting filters — Light Relief Yellow 313 — was designed by Rick Fisher on behalf of the UK-based Light Relief Charity. The objective of the new color is threefold: to offer additional exposure to this important charity; to provide continual revenue to this important charity; and to offer a new color to this range of long life, high heat resistant lighting filters.
“I wanted the Light Relief yellow to be a warm late afternoon sunny color,” Fisher says. “So many yellows look harsh or acidic when used. Light Relief yellow should be a good bridge between the pale straw shades and the ambers we use all the time. I am thrilled to be working with this wonderful initiative of Rosco's to benefit Light Relief and bring about a new addition to the spectrum of Supergel.”
Intended to provide financial support to lighting designers who find themselves in personal difficulties, the Light Relief charity will benefit from sales of 313 Light Relief Yellow, as profits from this color will be donated by Rosco to the charity.
