Cree's new bulb lights up the room Video Transcript
Hey I'm CNET's Ry Crist, and today we're talking about Cree's new 75-watt replacement LED bulb, and here it is right here in this lamp. You can see it looks just like the old Cree bulbs, but this one is a lot brighter. It's got 11,000 lumens as opposed to 800 in the 60-watt replacement Cree bulb. If you turn it on, you can see that it's quite bright. It puts out a lot of light. It's good for filling your room. It's enough light for a lot of residential uses. You'd like it quite a bit. It does cost a little more. It cost $23.97 as opposed to $12.97 for the 60-watt replacement. That's a lot of more. That's $11 more than the 60-watt replacement, but as bulbs get brighter, they do get more expensive. It's also worth noting that the Cree bulb is a pretty good price compared to competitors. If you look at the 75-watt replacement from Philips for instance, that would cost you about $30. So, $23.97, not great but not unreasonable by any stretch, and this bulb keeps a lot of the attractors specifications of the previous Cree bulbs. It's got a 25,000 hour life span. So, it'll last you over 20 years if you use it for three hours a day. It also has 27,000K of color temperature which gives it a nice warm yellowy glow, and it's got a 10-year warranty like other Cree bulbs and we love that. That's something that you can't find at any other manufacturer. Perhaps best of all is that this is a very efficient bulb. It gives off its 11,000 lumens of light using only 13.5 watts of power, and that means it's about 81 lumens per watt right there. That's a really good number. We liked that quite a bit. The 60-watt LED replacement that Cree put out got Energy Star's certification because it had 85 lumens per watts. So, we'll see if 81 is good enough for Energy Star. If that happens, the price of this bulb could go down a little bit. If you're looking for a better brighter bulb in your home, I think you're gonna like the Cree 75-watt replacement quite a bit. For CNET, I'm Ry Crist.

The second promo for Panic Cell for the track "Save Me", became the most voted for promo in the history of the rock satellite channel Scuzz, remaining in the top ten for eighteen weeks and at number one for six weeks. This was another three day shoot starting with the band performance. We wanted to shoot them in a confined metallic space like a shipping container with very low light. Unfortunately the logistics of filming in a freight container were too great so we came up with the idea of using the back of a truck. The truck we had in mind was too expensive to hire so we used the AFM lighting truck. We dressed the interior and hung 40 light bulbs only three of which were actually live, then cheated the band around into different positions to give the feeling of an enclosed space. The interiors were shot in the bathroom and living room of my flat and were lit by Tim, the master of understatement, with one kino tube and a bit of reflective milar. The exteriors were shot in a drainage pit at the bottom of a field in east sussex. The week before the shoot I'd dug a hole and sunk a plastic barrel into the side of the pit, the idea being we would stand our actor in it then fit a kind of sleeve around his waste and dress the earth around him. Unfortunately the barrel filled with freezing water. Add to that, he was topless and it was January. We shot quickly.
