Film Riot Releases New Short Film BALLiSTIC, Sponsored by Ikan

HOUSTON, Texas, (June 28, 2018) — From Writer / Director and Film Riot host Ryan Connolly comes the short Sci-Fi thriller, BALLiSTIC. The film blurs the lines between Independent and Hollywood film, featuring quality stunts, gear and editing. In filming, Connolly’s team used Ikan’s Onyx and Lyra series lights to capture the desired effects.

“Our cinematographer Chase Smith lit the basement scene with just a handful of lights,” said Connolly in a behind-the-scenes video. “We used the Onyx LED from Ikan to simulate the light in our stairwell. It’s a great little bi-color light that we were able to stick in different places throughout production.”

Connolly is known for his Youtube series Film Riot, an online filmmaking education series with just over 1.3 million subscribers.
