OK, new show, and new mystery lights.

"Wednesday" on Netflix. Multiple scenes where the Nevermore Academy students are exploring dark and scary places, also numerous scenes where local law enforcement are searching the woodland for evidence of mayhem. Everybody is using LED lights, and different color temps are plainly visible in multiple scenes

Here's the puzzle: the lights appear to have been disguised by the production team, making the lights appear to be older than they really are. So, can anyone identify the actual make and model(s)?

This should prove interesting...

I found this image on one of the fan pages...it shows the light perfectly. I suspect it's a modern light with retro styling, but I'm just guessing.

Authoritative guidance will be appreciated.

Also, in the image in the immediately preceding post, you can plainly see the different color temps produced by the characters' lights. (I'm still searching for the model of light the boy is using.)

OK, I found something that looks like it might be a candidate. The light in the attached image looks like the light used by Jenna Ortega (aka Wednesday Addams), but I didn't find any beamshots, and I'm not spending any money to find out. Still, speculation is free.

I came here to post this as well. What light is that? It’s very warm like 2700 or something. I really like it.

It appears that CPF may have experienced a glitch. I posted the definitive update on the "Wednesday" light identification question last Thursday, December 2nd, but it appears to have been deleted, along with one or twos other posts commenting on the December 2nd content. I'll repost.

I was able to contact the set designer for the "Wednesday" series. His name is Mark Scruton, and his work is nothing short of amazing. (I encourage you to check out his website; it contains a looong list of blockbuster projects on which he was the set designer.) It speaks well of his character that he took the time to respond to my unsolicited inquiry, and from Mark identified the light as a vintage "Yale" brand 2xD incan, which his team modified by removing the original guts and replacing them with LED,s pushed hard by 2x18650 cells. An image of the vintage Yale light is attached.

Mystery solved.

It looks like Maglite made an appearance in episode 2 of The Last of Us this week.
