Scene Change Adelaide added Martin Professional RUSH MH7 and MH6 fixtures to their inventory prior to Christmas. The resourcefulness these fixtures offer was essential for the busy holiday season and Nick Waterman, Director SA, Scene Change, commented that versatility of lighting was key to working within their clients’ budgets.
Pictured are a couple of Christmas themed events held in the Adelaide Town Hall, a heritage building with the famous organ creating the backdrop to the stage and the use of haze is not permitted.
“So you lose the beam effects and instead have to work on lighting the walls and organ to create your looks, as well as include some visual effects from stage,” said Nick. “Our Lighting Designer, whilst in correspondence with the client, came up with a Christmas tree truss upright to sit on the front of stage. This was adorned with ShowPro Hex strips acting as the tree branches and Martin MAC101’s as the baubles.”
Some of the in house stage wash fixtures were removed and replaced with the RUSH MH6s.
“These lights were incredibly flexible, acting as room wash on arrival, stage wash for performances and dance floor lighting later in the night,” remarked Nick. “We also rigged four RUSH MH7s to deliver gobo effects onto the organ and floor, plus these also doubled for the awards section of the night spotting winning tables.
“Our whole team love the RUSH MH7 fixture with its range of modern gobos and high light output. Then combined with the zoomable RUSH MH6, we can create some fantastic shows while still giving our clients great value for money.”
