Original Press Release

Magnalight Lights Used in HBO's True Blood and the New Green Lantern Movie

Press release date: August 24, 2010

Larson Electronics' Magnalight spotlights and explosion proof lights can be seen in several Hollywood productions, including the popular True Blood series and the upcoming Green Lantern movie. The Magnalight HL-85-HID handheld High Intensity Discharge (HID) spotlight was used on episode 10 in season two of the popular vampire series,' True Blood'. Andy, the drunken policeman, uses the light to illuminate Sookie's brother, Jason, as he pretends to be the god that the mesmerized townspeople are searching for. In the process, Sam turns into a fly and buzzes away to complete the illusion. The HL-85-HID [35 watt handheld HID spotlight] is one of the most popular 12/24 volt spotlights in Larson Electronics' line of utility lights for work, military use and hunting. "Quite a few of our [24 volt military lights] or our [explosion proof lights] are seen in various movies," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' "Our EPL-48-2L explosion proof lights are in the new Green Lantern movie. Our military light, the HML-6M, was shown in 'I am Legend' with Will Smith. The recent 'GI Joe' movie used several of our remote control HID searchlights, like the GL-3049H. If you are in the lighting business, it is hard not to watch something and not pay attention to whose lights are being used." Larson Electronics offers a wide array of handheld spotlights, remote controlled searchlights and explosion proof lighting for hazardous locations.
