The red carpet was a podium of fashion fusion for the paparazzi
South Africa - Cape Town stepped out, for the second year running, for the Mercedes-Benz Bokeh Fashion Film Festival, held on the 27 and 28 March at the African Pride designer hotel.

Rental company Ultra Events were the full technical supplier, as commissioned by their client Mercury Productions, to take care of the staging, trussing, lighting, sound, lcd screens and a central flow LED screen and also to provide AV equipment for the break-out conference area, which held talks, discussions and presentations on the hour every hour.

The red carpet was a podium of fashion fusion for the paparazzi and Ultra Events used six Philips Showline SL Nitros 501 and six Philips Selecon Rama 1000 w Flood Fresnel for an effective result. "The photographers loved the lighting," commented Costa Champanis, owner of Ultra Events.

The festival included an awards ceremony, film viewing sessions and here Ultra Events incorporated eight Robe 600 LEDWash lights, six Robe Pointes, 12 Longman LED Parcans and 12 Longman Battons.

"It's an exciting and challenging production, incorporating a variety of technical genres including film viewing, car launch, fashion show, live band show and fashion installation" said Costa. "The fashion installation had scattered stage podiums on which models stood on and where lit from above while the drag act, ballet installation with four ballerinas posing and the 18-piece swing band and grand pianist also had to be lit on cue."
