Following the successful launch of the Frog range of desks earlier this year, Zero 88 recently held a competition, the prize for which was a brand new Fat Frog lighting console. The competition generated a great deal of interest, both online and at the tradeshows with people entering from across the world. The eventual winner was Dave Godin, technical manager for the Royal Opera House. In addition to his work at the ROH, Dave is heavily involved with activities in the education sector, providing training in lighting and staging. On 3 May, the Royal Opera House is relaying ‘Othello’ via an LCD screen to a free outdoor audience on the Piazza, Covent Garden, and Dave anticipates using the Fat Frog for curtain calls on the stage in front of the screen. Our photograph shows Dave Godin receiving the Fat Frog from Cheryl Ryan (Zero 88) at the recent ABTT show.
