A complete kit for building a versatile lighting tool, Westcott's theC47 Book Light Kit includes the necessary Slim Jim Cine framework, connectors, and fabrics to create an adjustable V-shaped light modifier that is well-suited for interview and narrative lighting. Created in collaboration with Jem Schofield, founder of the popular filmmaking educational site, theC47, this kit is designed to produce a uniquely soft, flattering quality of light by both bouncing and diffusing the original source.

The included Scrim Jim Cine frame tubes allow you to construct two 4 x 6' frame panels, and two Swing Hinge Corner Frame Connectors pair these two panels to create an adjustable V-shaped frame. The frame tubes all incorporate heavy-duty hook-and-loop tape on two sides for attaching the included touch-fastener-lined 4 x 6' fabrics. Both 3/4-stop plain diffusion and 1/2-stop grid cloth diffusion fabrics are included, for softening the light, and reversible unbleached muslin/black and silver/white fabrics are included for bouncing the light source. Additionally, a dedicated travel case is also included for protecting the kit contents during travel and storage. All combined, this kit is a portable and versatile solution for creating a uniquely soft quality of light well-suited for interviews and other stationary subject situations.

  • Scrim Jim Cine Frame Tube (46")

    The integral component within a modular system, this 46" long Scrim Jim Cine Frame Tube from Westcott is used to construct customized panels in sizes ranging from 1 x 1' to 8 x 8'. When paired with optional fabrics, such as silks or diffusers, frame tubes form the rigid support from which fabrics are attached to create flags, diffusion panels, book lights, v-flats, or numerous other light controlling tools.

    This tube is constructed from anodized aluminum alloy and heavy-duty hook-and-loop tape is riveted to two sides of the tube for attaching fabrics. A 3/8"-16 threaded mount is incorporated into the tube for mounting atop stands and additional dedicated self-locking connectors are used to combine several pieces of tube to create flat 2D frames or dynamic 3D light shaping tools.

    Tube measures 46" long and can be added to additional tubes through the use of dedicated, self-locking connectors.
    Anodized aluminum alloy construction and self-locking connectors both help to maintain rigid, reliable frame configurations in various sizes up to 8 x 8'.
    Hook-and-loop tape is riveted onto two sides of the tube and is used for attaching a variety of fabric types to the frame system.
    A 3/8"-16 mount is incorporated into the tube's design for mounting to stands or other accessories.
