There is a scene in which Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone are walking along a street. They pass by a movie that is being shot. The equipment (like lights, etc.) looks old and classic. Why is that?

1 Answer 1


This type of equipment is still in use today. I live in a neighborhood in Los Angeles where many things are filmed. (We receive flyers from FilmLA saying there will be a shoot next Tuesday on your street and traffic will be stopped for 2 minutes at a time during shooting... etc.) I have sometimes seen lights like those being used in the last 5 years. I don't think they usually shoot with actual film, but I don't often see the cameras.

  • Yeah, we were still using these lights at school, too... the new LEDs are starting to take over but they're really expensive.
