LEE Urban Effects Filters

Written By: Steve Roudebush

Welcome to November everyone! It has been a hectic fall here at BMI Supply. Back in September, LEE Filters launched seven (7) new gel colors under the umbrella of “Urban Effects Filters”. These are specialized filters intended for a distinct design purpose – presenting sodium streetlight/industrial color temperatures using standard theatrical or studio fixtures. Each filter was developed to work with specific source temperatures to yield a variety of strengths/types of sodium lighting effects. These will help many designers take the guesswork out of picking traditional filters to mimic an “urban” lighting look. Unlike traditional new gel color introductions (which usually consist of random colors across the spectrum), LEE has smartly addressed a niche design need. Kudos!

Why write about this now? Well, the gel is finally here in the USA! Our first order is en route from LEE in California. We’ll have stock by the middle of next week. As with all standard LEE colors, BMI Supply’s price is $5.85 per sheet.

Here are the colors in detail:

You can check out LEE’s new colors at the LEE Filters booth at LDI2009 in Orlando Nov. 20-22.

Feel free to call or email with any questions

Have a great weekend!
