UK - Recognising the work and achievements of National Health Service employees is the annual Celebrating Success Awards, with awards reflecting the organisation's core values of care and compassion, dignity and respect, quality, teamwork, openness, honesty and responsibility. For the recent awards, which took place at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool, LD Ollie Wilkinson specified Chauvet Professional Rogue R2 Wash, Rogue R1 Spot, and Rogue R1 Beam fixtures in support of his overall lighting concept.
With the night itself very much centred around the guests themselves, Wilkinson decided to focus his lighting concept accordingly, placing special emphasis on illuminating the tables with the Rogue R2 Wash fixtures, which were flown from a centrally positioned truss.
“This year, I wanted to place visual emphasis upon the tables without exposing the guests to unsightly glare," comments Wilkinson. "This was a challenge, but the Rogue R2 Wash's zoom range really helped. I could zoom right into the tables without affecting the guests’ comfort."
Providing a touch of eye candy to fill the magnificent Empress Ballroom during the awards presentations were the Rogue R1 Beams. Utilising this fixture’s 140W Osram light source and 5-facet and 8-facet prisms, Wilkinson was able to send light soaring into the rafters to ensure interesting and colourful looks.
In addition to R1 Spots, complete with custom heart gobos as requested by the client, Wilkinson also specified 34 Chauvet DJ Freedom Par Tri-6 fixtures to uplight the pillars throughout the room.
“It’s great to have been involved in such a good cause,” adds Wilkinson. “My preferred Chauvet rig normally finds its way onto rockier tours, but it’s a great feeling to deliver a lighting concept that has a positive influence on the awards themselves.”
