Share this post

The current era that we live is an era of spreading information and exploding creativeness, and a new wave of creating has been pushed strongly by the rapid expansion of mass media, which gives everyone a chance–as long as you have an idea and use whatever you have to create, you may become a great creator, to adorn this era.

In recent years, NANLITE & NANLUX, the two brothers/sub-brands under NANGUANG, have won recognition from both working professionals within the industry and end users communities through the passion for lighting and achievements on products. And as brands that are always trying to be reliable partners to users, we want to further expand this spirit, to offer supports to creators and story tellers, and provide a place for them to show their talent.

What is “Project Spark”

Fuel Every Beam of Light

Project Spark, is a global campaign announced by NANLITE & NANLUX, together with four sponsors of ATOMOS, RODE, DZOFILM and ARTLIST, covering four categories of narrative, documentary, commercial and experimental. Project Spark is an invitation to creators, is a competition calling campaign for all creators around the world. Those outstanding ones within each category will be rewarded with bonuses and prizes provided by NANLITE, NANLUX and four sponsors.

“Call for Entries” Theme: Reflection

Light always originates from somewhere but nowhere to terminate. Different surfaces in nature could reflect the same light into different result–soft, hard, focus and spread, etc. Surfaces in heart and mind could sometimes reflect emotion and soul, even memory and reality. Surface could be defined by you, and what will be the reflection of your surface? The Spark is here, it brings the light, and your reflection will be the answer.
