This year saw the return of Winter Party to 3Arena. I was asked to design and operate a custom rig for the major dance event. Working with Session Hire we aimed to create a high impact and memorable show.
My main inspiration for the design was Vegas super clubs that usually have a large feature as the focal point. I also wanted the large arena to feel more intimate so we kept the trusses at a very low trim height to bring the lighting right into the crowd.
I was operating for every act with no guest LD’s so I had to have a very adaptable and complete show ready before arriving on site. My desk of choice was an Avolites Saphire Touch. It’s a great desk for on the fly operation with loads of faders and screen space. Avolites were kind enough to put out a feature about the event. you can read it here – avolites.com
I used Capture Argo for all my plot work and pre visualisation and their updates just keep better and better. here is the front plot for the show.
Have a look at some fantastic pictures of the show in the gallery and head to Sean Smyth Media to see more of the photographer’s work.
