Slovakia - The Farm (Farma) is a reality show competition that has been airing on TV Markiza since 2011. In December, long-time Bratislava-based production rental company and Elation distributor Adam A Syn installed 15 Rayzor 760 LED moving heads on The Farm set in a lighting upgrade that has increased the creative possibilities for lighting designers Michal Schmidt and Ondrej Štalbaský and boosted the overall appearance of the show.
Filmed at Shining Studio in the city of Stupava, The Farm takes a group of city dwellers and casts them out on a rural farm to fend for themselves. Living without modern conveniences and having to procure the necessities of life themselves, the contestant who best endures the trial and conquers a series of challenges emerges as the winner. Extremely popular, a quarter of the Slovakian population often tune in to The Farm each week.
Used to colour scenery and props and provide uniform washes across the set, as well as backlighting, the lighting designers are “very satisfied” with the LED wash/beam light according to Alan Pastorek, main technical engineer at Adam A Syn. “With the super wide zoom, the Rayzor 760 is an effective wide-coverage colour wash light and also has a good white colour. They are a nice complement to the other fixtures in the rig and are a good replacement for some of the more expensive wash/beam lights out there,” comments Pastorek, who adds that the low power draw of the fixture was also an important factor in its choice.
Located throughout the overhead rig, the Rayzor 760 produces a well-defined beam from its 60W RGBW LEDs and with a wide 5°-77°zoom can then spread wide for a full-coverage even wash. Adam A Syn reports that they plan to keep the versatile LED light busy on several events and techno parties throughout the year.
