The new company will focus on the specific creative needs and demanding requirements of the live industry - from music tours to corporate presentation and everything in between. The move is also designed to enable Halo Lighting to concentrate fully on its traditional core businesses. Halo Live’s production manager is Steve Marley: "We’d reached the stage where we needed to separate the production projects from the straight hire and sales ones. With Halo Live, we offer more than just lighting - it’s a fully integrated visuals package." Other production areas embraced by Halo Live include video production and moving image and large format projection - where it can supply equipment, engineers/designers and expertise.
"We’re proposing something new - a bespoke lighting service," affirms Guenancia. "We’ve worked with every sector of the leisure industry and have a different approach to each of them," he states. "We’re proud to wear our client’s T-Shirts when required. Our aim is to become a lighting department integral to their operation." The new operation will carry the latest technology, including moving light fixtures from High End Systems and Martin Professional, consoles from Avolites and Flying Pig Systems and effects from Optikinetics and ANYtronics. Customised equipment requirements can also be accommodated. Additionally, Halo Live has a full rigging department with Lodestar motors, numerous trussing and metalwork options and a Thomas ground support system.
