Color Force joins Phantom tour
Paule's prolific design portfolio includes creating lit environments for the highest profile international theatre and opera productions, and her work is renowned worldwide for its experimentation, invention and creativity.
She had not used Color Force products before, but sought a powerful, well sized lightsource that could be utilised as an even spread 'soft light' tool to illuminate the numerous cloths and drapes that give Cameron Mackintosh and Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic musical its period flavour and ambience.
Paule was impressed with the information available about the Chroma-Q Color Force range, so initially contacted Chroma-Q's exclusive UK dealer, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) Ltd., and spoke to their Northern lighting sales manager, Kevin Fitz-Simons about the capabilities of the product range.
After receiving a demonstration, she confirmed that Color Force battens were the answer for achieving the desired effects.
"For me they were easily the best" out of all the choices, she confirms, "The colour mixing is brilliant, especially in that pale 'sludgy' area of the spectrum which I use a lot, and they generally offer an excellent theatre palette and really bring the cloths alive."
Mark Burnett from Stage Electrics comments, "The units have proved to be extremely reliable, and the light output is excellent. The Color Force 72s are a great addition to our rental inventory."
