RML illuminates election results 2017
Monday, 12 June 2017
UK - Richard Martin Lighting (RML) supported lighting designer David Gibson in lighting the BBC coverage of the General Election, Election Results 2017, aired on BBC One.
Lighting designer David Gibson was called upon to light the BBC coverage that ran from when the polls closed last night all the way through to this morning. The overnight coverage was presented by David Dimbleby, who has anchored the BBC’s coverage of every General Election since 1979. Huw Edwards took over this morning as lead presenter recapping what had gone on through the night and leading the viewers through the day’s events, including the formation of a new government.
A vast rig was employed going into the Elstree Studio D in two parts, and David chose a mixture of strong and stable units including the Claypaky Sharpy, the Martin MAC Aura, James Thomas Engineering Pixel Par 90 and Pulsar Chroma Flood 200 TC and 300mm Chroma Cubes. The units combined to create a sophisticated and stylish look, keeping the studio looking fresh and bright as the night dwindled into the early hours.
