Thread: Where do you buy lighting gels from in the UK ?

    Default Where do you buy lighting gels from in the UK ?

    Hi everyone

    I can't find anyone who sells the damn things ! I'm talking about the heat resistance (well, to a point) coloured plastic sheets that you put over your lights to create colour tone effects. I've just spent an hour searching online, photography supplies and so on, and I have drawn a complete blank. Does anybody here know where to get them from ?

    South London Filters 020 7735 1900

    Panavision London 020 8839 7333

    VFG in Greenford (Haven't been there a while but I'm sure they're in the phone book)

    or go to www.formatt.co.uk and see what they have.

    PS: If you're looking for stuff in the "Digital Video" feature on lighting gels, the lads at South London Filters do Lightbreaks and coloured gels, mention the article and they'll know what you mean.

    Hi,

    Apologies for bringing up an old thread- but in case anyone finds this via google (like I did), I've found that the cheapest way to buy gels seems to be in sheets rather than rolls. One of the cheapest suppliers at the moment is Stage Depot- Lighting gel

    Hope that helps others who come across this page!

    Here are the sets:
