Black Coffee's Brandon Bunyan with the Clay Paky Mythos
South Africa - Durban based rental company, Black Coffee, has purchased 12 new Clay Paky Mythos fixtures which will go onto the 14th Metro FM Music Awards for lighting designer Fran├žois van der Merwe and Dream Sets, the official technical suppliers . The awards will be hosted at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Conference Centre (ICC) in Durban on 28 February and will be broadcast live on SABC1. Black Coffee will also be receiving six Stormy Colors.

Brandon Bunyan, owner of Black Coffee, was introduced to the projectors comprising of The Mythos, The Stormy and The SuperSharpy on the South African leg of the Clay Paky Roadshow held at the end of last year. Once Massimo Bolandrina and Giovanni Zucchinali had completed an indoor demo, they took the fixtures outside to do an informal outdoor demo. "I was late for beers at the demo," remembers Bunyan. "It was night time and from a distance of 3km with ambience and lights in the area, I could see the beams and colour of the Mythos in the sky."

"Once Brandon had seen the demo, he knew he was onto something and immeditaly ordered The Mythos," said Duncan Riley of DWR, suppliers of Clay Paky in South Africa. "He also ordered six Stormy Colors." The units form part of an upgrade at Black Coffee.
