Valère Huart-Gyors, 1979-2017

Thursday, 23 February 2017

France – Leading entertainment lighting manufacturer Ayrton has announced the tragic death of its export manager, Valère Huart-Gyors. The company’s statement said:
“It is with a heavy heart that we report the heart of Valère stopped beating last Sunday. He was 37 years old.
“Valère Huart-Gyors, our collaborator and dear colleague, was responsible for exporting Ayrton throughout the world. Since 2011, from Las Vegas to Sydney, he has spread our values with a rare commitment because Valère was an authentic fan of Ayrton.
“Methodical, organised and precise, he advanced quickly and well, exercising a detailed knowledge of his market. Societies and their politics, people and their past, excited him in addition to his many interests such as history, politics, music . . . Valère was both brilliant and cultivated. His humour, sharp and often caustic, made us laugh. He was also a rascal, and Norman . . .
“It was with the enthusiasm of a young graduate of higher education that he arrived in Paris at the age of 22, first as a salesman at AVLS, then as purchasing manager for La BS, before joining Ayrton to develop international sales. “It’s Ayrton’s second life,” he said humorously when he arrived in 2011, and success, which first struck in the US, spread throughout the globe.
“Now, sadly, Valère will no longer get angry at h

Tommy Stephenson, 1963-2017

Thursday, 23 February 2017

USA - TMB has issued the following tribute to its first employee Tommy Stephenson who sadly passed away this week . . .
“TMB fondly remembers our first employee, Tommy Stephenson, the loudest man in show business.
“After a record breaking stint as PA for Greg Lake (of ELP fame) Tommy joined TMB around 1984 (who kept track in those days?). He transformed the fledgling organization from Two Men in a Bedroom to Three Men and a Dog. Tommy’s primary role then was, and always remained, Confusion Analyst, but his early duties also included cable coiler, driver, shipping/receiving expert, and ace booth builder (specializing in the afternoon shift). Later, in the spare time between his ongoing confusion analysis, he grew to become TMB’s Sales Manager. His heavy focus on confusion was the origin of TMB’s famous Rule Three: “Do Not Believe A Word Tommy Tells You.” In 2013 Tommy sadly retired from TMB for health reasons.
Tommy was infamous for not listening – ever! Known far and wide as “Large and Loud,” his blustery voice carried like a foghorn, irrespective of the environment or situation, or the choice language he was also known for. A demure patron in a London Indian restaurant put it succinctly: “I want to thank you for sharing your entire evening with the entire restaurant. You sir, are an a***hole.” Once, during one of many long fligh

Elation helps energise Anaheim nightlife

Thursday, 23 February 2017

USA - December saw the opening of Rumba Room Live, an upscale Latin-themed nightclub and concert venue in Anaheim, California. Located at the Anaheim GardenWalk and built new from the ground up, the club, which features state-of-the-art Elation entertainment lighting and video systems, has energised the nightclub scene in Anaheim. The 10,000sq.ft venue has the flexibility to host 1,000 people and hold a variety of events yet maintains a chic, intimate feel.
Working with the club’s architect and ownership to develop the design and look of the venue was Michael Betancourt, general manager at Southern California-based Props AV, the production company that designed, supplied and installed the Elation lighting and video package. “When the Rumba Room Live project first came to the table the feel that they wanted to go for was a Latin-themed nightclub and live venue with a sexy Las Vegas feel,” Betancourt says.
“It was a completely new idea for Anaheim. With that being said, the sexiness and the party needed to start on the exterior. Elation lighting features throughout the inside of the venue - lobby, dance floor and stage – but it is outside where the lighting makes its first impression.”
Downlighting the Rumba Room Live facade in a wash of customizable shades are 12 Elation SixPar 200IP colour changers, weatherproof fixtures with six-colour LED

Justin Bieber back on the road with Mavericks

Thursday, 23 February 2017

Mexico - Justin Bieber kicked off year two of his comeback tour with a sold-out concert at Monterrey, Mexico’s Estadio BBVA Bancomer arena. Accenting the star’s performance and lending an aura of timelessness to the evening was a powerful and evocative Corey FitzGerald lightshow that featured 88 Chauvet Professional Maverick MK2 Wash fixtures, supplied by Serpro Producciones of Monterrey.
“We were very honoured to have provided lights for this concert,” said Renato Betancourt, CEO of Serpro Producciones. “Recently, we made an investment in the Maverick MK2 Wash because we wanted a fixture that could deliver the output and colours that would be needed for major productions – and at the same time would be flexible enough to work well for a range of musical styles.”
With 12 40W Osram RGBW LEDs, the Maverick MK2 Wash met Betancourt’s criteria for output and colour rendering, while its 7-49° zoom range provided the flexibility to cover widely different areas on a stage. All these features came into play at the Bieber concert, where the Maverick MK2 Wash was the principal fixture on the main stage truss, with added units also being arranged on the stage deck.
The Mavericks were used for backwashing performers, general stage washing and aerial washing at the Bieber concert. “It was exciting to see how the Mavericks performed,” said Edi Sos

Christie Pandoras Box at Meraas City Walk

Thursday, 23 February 2017

UAE - Christie Pandoras Box is synchronizing more than 100m pixels of Float4 content at Meraas City Walk in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. City Walk was conceived as a destination par-excellence for both locals and tourists complete with upscale shopping, dining and living with a park-like ambience by Meraas, a Dubai-based holding company with extensive assets in real estate, retail, hospitality and entertainment.
Meraas approached Float4, an award-winning studio that designs and produces site-specific interactive multimedia installations, to create a digital feature for City Walk. The scope grew to encompass an outdoor digital experience that includes more than 30 LED installations, nearly 30 projectors, and a water fountain show that uses water screens. In total, there are over 100m pixels that cover a space the size of 12 football fields.
“Meraas wanted to differentiate themselves,” says Alexandre Simionescu, co-founder of Float4. “One of the things they wanted to do was create a location that was pedestrian-friendly. It’s not something that you find in Dubai, so they’re very innovative. They like to question things beyond ‘can we do it bigger’ and ask ‘can we do it better?’“
Float4 worked with XYZ Cultural Technology, a long-time Christie partner, to design a system powerful enough to synchronize and control all 100 million pixels

 
 

PRG XL Video moves to larger London location

Thursday, 23 February 2017

UK - PRG XL Video, the UK operation of Production Resource Group (PRG), has moved to a new, larger, London location. Continuing its strategy for growth, the company has relocated within Central London.
The office, in the very heart of London’s theatreland, houses sales and support teams from four major market sectors – concert touring, theatre, television and film, and corporate and events. The location at 77 St Martin’s Lane, Covent Garden includes space for PRG XL permanent staff, hot desking space for clients and creatives to visit, and multiple meeting rooms, which are not only used by PRG XL’s own teams, but are utilised by industry organisations for their regular board meetings.
PRG XL Video’s director of human resources, Alistair Todd comments: “The space has been designed not only to house our growing team, but also as a hub of creativity for clients and visitors. “We aimed to create a modern, pleasant working environment. The location has lots of natural light, which creates a bright, open space which our team will enjoy working in.”
PRG president and Chief Operating Officer, Stephan Paridaen continues: “As our UK business continues to grow, we have invested in a larger London location. This has given us the opportunity to locate sales, production, event services, crewing services and support teams all together, promoting an a

Claypaky Supersharpy lights up Super Bowl sky

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

USA – In the Texas tradition of going big, Houston welcomed Super Bowl LI with a number of exciting attractions, including the Houston Skylight high atop the George R. Brown Convention Centre(GRB). Houston First Corporation, which maintains GRB, asked Nimblist to conceive and execute the Houston Skylight, a rooftop beacon that marks the centre of the city’s cultural activities.
Nimblist designer and creative consultant Spike Brant devised an array of 36 Claypaky Supersharpy fixtures, mounted on staging on the GRB roof overlooking Discovery Green park. The Supersharpys swept the sky with powerful searchlight-style beams and created numerous lighting effects as well.
“We have an ongoing conversation with Mike Waterman with Houston First about using light as a beacon to connect all of Houston,” says Spike Brant. “The Houston Skylight would symbolize energy as light and serve as a visual metaphor connecting the Super Bowl festivities. The installation was commissioned as a proof of concept for a broader effort to illuminate Houston to the world and create a citywide attraction using multiple types of lighting installations.
A.C.T Lighting helped Brant arrange for Claypaky’s factory in Italy to build and ship 20 Supersharpys, which Houston First purchased through local dealer LD Systems. “A.C.T got us the lights quickly. I can’t thank

Gem and Jam Festival stage glows with Chauvet

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

USA - Set in the vast expanse of the Sonoran Desert in early February, the Gem and Jam Festival has a way of inspiring flights of imagination. Originally an after-party for the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, the four-day electronic music festival, which this year featured stars like The Trancident and The Floozies, pays tribute to its roots by embellishing its grounds with a captivating and sparkling array of crystalline artwork.
This enchanting atmosphere was apparent at the Festival’s Onyx Stage, the only indoor stage of the four gem-inspired stages, set to go off at closing of the mainstage and continue to sunrise. The building was centred in a fantastical courtyard that housed an eclectic mix of sculptures and vendors. The stage was bejewelled with enormous clear quartz matrixes, large wooden panels riddled with intricate cut-outs of coyotes, symmetric crystal and interweaving geometric shapes.
Cody Lisle brought out the full aesthetic qualities of the stage and its surroundings with a richly coloured and deeply textured lighting and set design that featured a collection of Chauvet Professional and Chauvet DJ fixtures supplied by LIT Lighting.
“The idea was to create an organic look that blended with the surroundings, and not just have a standard cookie cutter stage design,” said Lisle. “I put a lot of effort into even small details and tried

Justin Bieber flies with Q-7s at Fontainebleau

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

USA - SGM Q-7 strobes were the main cannons of the stage lighting for Justin Bieber’s exclusive show at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, FL.
Everlast Productions have carried out the New Year’s Eve Party at Fontainebleau Hotel for several years. It was the first year that Tyler Frank spearheaded the overall design. Tyler and his crew took the shell of the structure from previous years and incorporated that into the new design for the stage.
He wanted to create something that had more depth, immersion and dynamics, all the while fitting into the tight restrictions of the space. They built a 18m wide x 15m tall x 13m deep (60’ wide x 50’ tall x 40’ deep) structure and stage over an existing poolside bar. The lighting design had to be practical, bright and resilient to South Beach weather conditions. He explained why he chose the Q-7s for the stage setup:
“The Q-7s were the main cannons for the show. They were the only fixtures that I could trust to fill in the void between the LED walls and to have an output bright enough to make it across the pool. The Q-7s were going to be out in the open to the elements and so the IP-rating and the durability of SGM was a no brainer. The fixtures acted as bookends to the LED wall and really brought synergy between the lighting and video elements.”
Tyler was very satisfied with the performance of

Elation concept for Cologne’s Bootshaus

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

Germany - Production company LaserFrame recently installed Elation Professional Platinum HFX hybrid moving heads and ACL 360 Bar effect lights into one of the world’s top clubs, Bootshaus in Cologne.
Located at the Cologne shipyard, Bootshaus has been an integral part of the city’s club culture for more than a decade. Primarily a techno club, Bootshaus attracts a clientele of sophisticated clubbers who often dance to the beats of top DJs like David Guetta, Avicii, Hardwell, Afrojack and Tiesto. The club is all about quality and as a top club maintains high standards when it comes to its lighting and sound systems. Pyro, Co2, lasers and confetti are part of the standard repertoire as well.
Bootshaus houses three rooms – the Mainfloor, the BLCKBX and the Dreherei, an old workshop – plus a large outdoor area where open air parties can be celebrated. The Mainfloor is the largest space with a total capacity of 1200 guests. It is here that 16 Elation Platinum HFX and 20 Elation ACL 360 Bars are used as part of an integrated lighting concept around the dance floor.
“We decided on the HFX due to its excellent price:performance ratio,” stated LaserFrame owner Guido Schütz. He adds, “From my perspective it was the best on the market. We tested it against hybrid lights from some of the top manufacturers and it came out on top. The most convincing f

Maroon 5 get X4 Bar 20 treatment at Mandalay Bay

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

USA - The latest in a succession of lighting professionals to adopt GLP’s award-winning X4 Bar 20 platform has been designer and programmer, Brian Jenkins. Part of an experienced team based on America’s West Coast, along with people like Roy Bennett, his verdict was unequivocal. “In the moving LED batten market, GLP has hit it out of the park.”
Jenkins is no stranger to the German company’s products, having originally been introduced to the Volkslicht by Seth Jackson when he was designing the Selena Gomez tour. This kick-started an enduring relationship with GLP and its staff. Now in his fourth year with Maroon 5, the LD says, “When we first fired-up in 2015, Roy Bennett designed the production and lighting, with Jason Baeri and myself handling programming and associate design duties. We’ve found a workflow that we both enjoy.
“Outside the main tour, which Roy designs, I handle all the other designs and show direction and am given creative freedom for each show.” And this included two shows at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Centre on 30-31 December.
Regarding his lighting plot as “an extension of Roy’s vision”, Brian Jenkins kept returning to a promising, and pre-existing structural concept but recognised that it needed some “extra legs”.
Having been introduced to the X4 Bar 20 by Matt Shimamoto at Volt Lites he could

Laserworld presents the Purelight Series

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

Europe - Laserworld's Purelight Series with 6W, 10W and 20W offers high power for a low price with a good white balance. This makes the units suitable for high power applications in bigger venues.
Laserworld’s Purelight systems are powerful white light RGB laser systems with a power range between 6 and 20W. The three offered RGB systems have a good white balance with homogeneous beam profile and analogue colour modulation.
Lasers in the new Purelight Series have a compact housing, thus they easily integrate with existing lighting setups and established room concepts. Due to the rugged mounting bracket, the Purelight laser systems can be mounted in standing and hanging position, thus it is possible to hang the units from a truss or mount them on top of a stand. Laserworld Purelight systems are especially suitable for beam shows with longer beam distances such as festivals or bigger stage shows.
"The Purelight laser systems are extremely efficient, especially for their low price," said Norbert Stangl, CMO of the Laserworld Group, who co-developed the Purelight systems. "There is a significant need of strong laser systems for festivals and large stages at a low price, which became obvious over the last few months. Due to the large manufacturing quantities and technical developments we had the chance to dramatically reduce the production costs."

Spheriscans deliver at Edinburgh's Hogmanay

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

UK - Claypaky Spheriscans were selected to deliver a display of spectacular lighting effects that merged architectural and entertainment lighting during Edinburgh's famous Hogmanay torchlight procession. The award-winning fixtures were supplied and installed on The National Monument of Scotland at Calton Hill by Edinburgh-based production and rental outfit Black Light.
Project manager James Gow from Black Light worked alongside lighting designer Grant Anderson and production manager of the torchlight procession John Robb, to create a lighting plan that offered maximum impact and versatility for the event.
Gow explains: "We chose to use the Claypaky Spheriscan thanks to its 360-degree pan with an IP54 rating, which makes it a unique fixture on the market. With no need to add extra weather proofing, the unit has a sleek and discreet design."
One Spheriscan was placed between each of the eight front columns of The National Monument of Scotland. The remaining two were positioned in front of the monument where the fixtures bright beams and inbuilt gobos provided texture and illuminated the stone - making it prominent against the night sky.
"A key requirement for this event was 'in air effects'," explains Gow. "The Spheriscans offered us fast moving, strong beams of light that were captured perfectly by the smoke given off from the event's bonfire, fire

BlackTrax on track for Beauty & the Beast

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

Belgium - International creative design practice Painting with Light was commissioned to design lighting and a video system, plus produce video content for the recent staging of Disney’s Beauty & the Beast musical by Marmalade in Hall 8 at Ghent Expo in Belgium.
The Belgium based company’s Luc Peumans also seized the opportunity to use their new BlackTrax real-time motion tracking system for the first time on a major production . . . to ensure that all the principal cast members were perfectly illuminated as they moved around the performance space.
When Luc came on-board, the set designed by Stefaan Haudenhuyse - under licence to Disney with the producers having to meet certain criteria – was already initiated. Spectacular and dynamic, it was based around a 50m long performance area in the shape of a rose in the centre of the hall with audience seated 180 degrees in the round. Upstage of the ‘stage’ end was a large LED screen backdrop which split into four sections and tracked into different configurations.
The show, production managed by Bart de Coensel, also featured multiple flying props and scenery pieces which came in and out throughout, including large objects like show portals to books from the library and trees from the forest scenes, church windows and a host of others.

White Light on tour with Running Wild

Tuesday, 21 February 2017


UK - Originally performed at the Chichester Festival Theatre before transferring to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, Running Wild is now back and embarking on a UK tour. The show is based on Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling novel and uses live-action puppetry to tell the story of Will, whose visit to Indonesia sees her and elephant Oona having to ride deep into the jungle in order to escape a tsunami. White Light was called upon to provide the lighting equipment.
Running Wild is being produced by the Children’s Touring Partnership, which is a collaboration between producers Fiery Angel, CFT and a consortium of regional theatres.
The lighting design for the tour is by James Whiteside. He comments, “This is an extremely busy show, with the setting ranging from the Indonesian rainforest to a rural part of England to the tsunami itself. The highly-stylised set is based around the debris left by the destruction of the tsunami. We have a full-blown ceiling and masking legs of debris which form the jungle. One of my biggest tasks was to get the light pouring through the ceiling which would create the dappled light of the jungle.”
As the ceiling made it impossible to focus any lights above it, this meant that James would need to rely on moving fixtures. As a result, he drew on a series of 16 x Martin MAC 700 Washes for the backligh

Robe for Idols South Africa

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

South Africa - The twelfth season of Idols South Africa wrapped up with a stunning finale at Carnival City Big Top Arena in Johannesburg, broadcast live on the Mzansi Magic network with a highly vocal audience of 3,500 packing into the venue - and lighting designer Joshua Cutts of Visual Frontier choosing nearly 200 Robe fixtures to be at the core of his rig.
As always, the challenge was to make this final season look better and different than before, and with over 80m votes cast across Series 12, a lot of eyes are on it and production values have been honed accordingly to reflect the intense public interest and impress fans. A skilled and imaginative creative team once again united to produce amazing results.
Technical production – lighting, sound, video, set and rigging - was delivered by Dream Sets for producers SIC Entertainment and the series, which also included nine elimination rounds recorded on the Drama Stage at the State Theatre in Pretoria, was directed by Gavin Wratten.
The popularity of this and other singing / talent contests in South Africa, highlights how a diversity of music, song and lyrical based entertainment is integral to the culture and heartbeat of the country.
Throughout the 2016 Idols final series, there was a big emphasis on lighting supported by video – rather than the other way around – and this continue

Iluminarc in harmony at winter festival

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

USA - Officially, the theme of this year’s Portland Winter Light Festival was ‘Between the River and the Stars’. In reality, though, it could also have been described as ‘connecting people to light’. Held at the beginning of February on Portland’s beautiful Willamette River waterfront, the free four-day festival engaged visitors with an abundance of immersive lighting displays and interactive events like Illuminate Bike Rides and a Glow Jam circus show.
Among the festival’s most engaging attractions was Harmony Park, an interactive exhibit created by Justin Metras, the founder of Portland-based Ellumiglow. Setting an appropriately immersive backdrop for this one-of-a-kind participatory exhibit was a celestial display created with six Iluminarc Colorist Line 6Qa fixtures.
Metras used the RGBA linear fixtures to create a starry night sky, which he set against a fantastical Harmony Park “river” that immersed visitors in a multi-sensory experience. At the heart of this river were custom designed LED lily pads that emitted light and sound signatures when pressure was applied to them.
Visitors to the exhibit encountered these pads “floating” on faux water. When they jumped from pad to pad, they sent vividly illuminated ripples running through the water-like surface below them. Along with these ripples came a sound s

Market Theatre invests in Robin DL4S

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

South Africa - The Market Theatre have invested in 8 Robin DL4S Profiles for their busy venue in Newtown Johannesburg.
The theatre was looking at an LED solution to save on costs and maintenance, a common factor these days. DWR Distribution was awarded the tender to supply the DL4S fixtures which will be used in the main theatre.
Nomvula Molepo, head of lighting at the Market Theatre, comments, “While we are yet to hang the fixtures on the lighting grid, I know that once they have been programmed they will work wonders and bring magic to our stage.”
“The gobo set and the framing shutters makes this an extremely versatile fixture for theatre,” said Kevin Stannett of DWR Distribution. “Because of the RGBW chip you get extremely rich and high-intensity colours. We are finding that this particular fixture is receiving positive feedback from theatres worldwide and it’s a privilege to now supply them to the Market Theatre.”

PRG XL Video at the National Television Awards

Monday, 20 February 2017

UK - Each year, the very best in television is recognised at the National Television Awards. Taking place in late January, the awards, which are voted for by the British public, honour television shows, actors and presenters in a range of categories. Producers Indigo TV bring together a variety of technical suppliers to support both the glamorous red carpet arrival space and the awards at The O2 in London, which are broadcast live on ITV.
Continuing a long-running relationship, PRG XL Video supplied both video and lighting technology for this year’s event. Video account manager Paul Wood has worked with Indigo TV’s Andy Bates for a number of years, and this year supplied the production team with the main LED backdrop made up of ROE Visual 7mm LED. The screen is used for all the main title logos, category information and video clips in the hall.
Playback footage was driven by two of PRG XL’s Catalyst media servers, with a PPU forming the link between the live camera footage and the four large IMAG screens located around the O2. These screens used 30k and 14k Barco projectors, and ensured the audience in the arena got a close-up view of the presenters and performers reactions as the awards were announced.
Paul Wood commented, “It’s great to work on the NTAs once again. Andy and the whole Indigo TV team put together a fantastic looking show each

New Linear Flares blast NBC’s World of Dance

Monday, 20 February 2017

USA - NBC’s World of Dance is currently in production for a 10-episode rollout this spring. Tasked with painting the stage for The Biggest Dance Competition in the World, lighting designer Oscar Dominguez of Darkfire Lighting Design brought his signature kinetic energy and a palette that included 24 Solaris Flare Q+ LR linear fixtures.
“I’m in love with these new Flare LRs,” says Oscar, “they’re a versatile, violent, shootable weapon! Brighter than the original Flare (which says a lot!), we put a few fixtures in the aisles and the rest in the air. They’re the ultimate in accent lighting, as a wash, strobe, or blinder, and pixel-mapped for special effects.
“The technology of these Solaris fixtures never ceases to amaze me: they keep outdoing themselves, improving on perfection. They’re very nicely designed and of the highest quality. They will always be a part of my arsenal.”
The new Flare Q+ LR was first seen on Dominguez’s hit show, The Voice and his special, New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly.
World of Dance is produced for NBC by Universal Television Alternative Studios and Jennifer Lopez's Nuyorican Productions.
