USA - More than 3,000 Future Farmers of America (FFA) members gathered at the 90th Annual Tennessee FFA State Convention to compete and receive recognition for their work throughout the year.
Bandit Lites supplied the lighting for the event, including the stage that presented scholarship awards for accomplished FFA members.
“Turning a convention centre ballroom into a theatre is always a challenge,” comments Bandit Lites general manager Giff Swart, “but Bandit has a talented group of folks who can work magic in any situation when given the right tools. John Lucksinger was our LD, and he was the right man to make magic with this rig. Wayne Lotoza was our crew, and he is unmatched when you want something to get done right and in record time.”
Bandit Lites provided 110 minibeam downstage loaded with Bandit’s GRNLite Moving Washes for stage front-light along with lighting the room in between sessions. VL 2500 Spots and VL 3000 Spots outfitted with gobos painted the room and generated excitement with movement. A 50’ midstage truss featured GRNLite Moving Washes, GRNLite LED Pars and 54 sections of Chroma-Q Color Web 250 surrounding two projections screens and hung with black drape.
“The Colour Web was mapped entirely from the Grand MA console and was fed words and chases to create a unique backdrop for the event,” says Swart. “This midstage truss with draping also provided a mask on the 28’ deep by 70’ wide stage to create a backstage area at stage level.”
To complete the theatre look, Bandit provided 100ft of A-type truss with GRNLite LED Moving Washes and draping to completely mask off the back wall, with the LED Fixtures backlighting stage right and stage left positions and streak the ceiling.
