Olivia Rodrigo - Drivers License
Music Video / Aerial Lighting
Aerial lighting illuminates Olivia Rodrigo’s hit music video “Drivers License” and holds the top Billboard Global charts 200 with over 100 million streams world-wide in just one week. The aerial lighting aesthetics thru out the video are created using 2 drones, an aerial lighting drone and an aerial cinematography drone operated by LA drone pilots JJ Trinidad and Chris Feuermen of Skyecam. The debut single from the 17-year-old Disney actress became a TikTok smash, broke Spotify records and topped the Billboard chart released on January 8, 2021 by Interscope Records and Geffen Records. “Working with Olivia was a blast, most of our portion of the filming was at night and it was snowing and cold” say’s JJ Trinidad and Chris Feuerman on location in Utah where Disney’s High School Musical is currently filmed. Our high powered aerial lighting LED Light Emitters are extremely bright. Our design makes it easy to combine multiple modules and create blindingly bright LED arrays and projects 130,000 lumens. The system is designed to keep shadow edges as sharp as possible by grouping the LED Modules close together. It also allows for dynamic shadow control with a tilt-able base controlled by servos. Subjects can be lit from any angle to stretch shadows across the landscape.
Before the music video release of “Drivers License,” Rodrigo was gaining popularity through Disney. She started off on Disney’s Bizaardvark, and has been the lead actress on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, a Disney Channel show. 17-year-old Disney star’s debut song is an emotionally potent early contender for song of the year.
