What a great show this was! During 2018, we worked on a show in which Olly Walker presented GENESIS. The event took place at The Quarry Theatre in Bedford and it turned out to be even better than we expected! The show took just one day to build and was run by an excellent crew and management team. The visuals were created by the amazing Rob Brown!
Above you can see the Olly Walker (GENESIS) drawing. The theatre rigging (bars) was very basic, so we couldn’t do as many interesting things on the stage as we would like to do. But we were determined to create a spectacle and in the end it looked incredible! The rig was almost an all Chauvet rig which included 4 MK1 Hybrids, 2 Intimidator Spot LED 350s, 4 Intimidator Spot 100 IRCs and a Hurricane Haze 1D on stage left. It also included 2 Chauvet Geyser RGBs. The floor package included 4 R1 FXBs from Chauvet.
This plot was Version 2 as we were given a great opportunity to hire in some incredible equipment to augment the V1 design. The rig also included 4 IMG Stageline Minizoom 712s, 6 Showline SL eStrips, 1 JEM smoke machine (under riser), 1 Look Solutions hazer (stage right) and 1 ADJ Mister Fog with fan (FOH).
Amazingly, we also had a chance to use lasers for this show. We had 2 lasers built into the floor package which the crew and members of the audience described as “magnificent”. The two lasers were DS 1000RGB’s from Laserworld and everybody loved them!
In the picture above you can just make out the visuals at the back of the stage, made and operated by Rob Brown from VJ Robbie B. The visuals were controlled on Resolume during the show and they really did top off the design, making the stage more alive and exciting.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this show!
