Recommended Posts

A.C. Lighting have supplied 169 Chroma-Qâ„¢ Color Blocks to prime time BBC One programmes Comic Relief Does Fame Academy 2005 and Red Nose Night.


The star-studded Comic Relief Does Fame Academy returns this year to see another 13 well-known celebrities go head-to-head in the ultimate singing competition to raise money for good causes in the UK and abroad. Hosts Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty also return to present the extended series from the new Academy location on the banks of the Thames.


The show aired for the first time on Saturday 26th February and sees the students perform live from the Academy every night on BBC One. At the end of each show, one is expelled until just three are left for the final showdown during Red Nose Night on Friday 11th March. Extended backstage coverage of the show is also running for digital viewers on BBC Three and BBCi.


Show lighting is by Mark Kenyon and Roger Williams, and features 69 Chroma-Q Color Blocks providing a wide variety of effects lighting as part of the overall rig. Lighting includes 25 Color Blocks around the rear perimeter of the stage at floor level in an arc batten format, built into the set and facing the cameras. A further 12 units are mounted vertically but individually on the walls either side of the stage, and 4 horizontally, as side fill/mini blinders again facing the cameras. Finally, 28 truss mounted Color Blocks are used at 1m centers to wash the audience.
