In 2018, one of The Australian Ballet’s most popular works sprung to new life. Spartacus tells the story of a gladiator who led a slaves’ rebellion against the Roman Empire. One of the most important scenes is held in the Roman bath house and Head Electrician Adrian Siggs was tasked with recreating a steam effect.
Adrian didn’t have to look any further than the Power-Tiny, the new battery-operated fog generator from Look Solutions. It completes the range of the off-mains operated machines (Tiny-Fogger and Tiny Compact) perfectly and fills the gap between high flexibility and powerful fog output.
“The Power-Tinys were placed inside seven prop baths and utilised a system of pipes to disperse the smoke through small holes located in the bottom of the baths,” explained Adrian. “They were suitable for the space restrictions we had plus they also provided the run time and smoke volume that we required.”
Power-Tiny is a high-output battery-powered fog machine used on most Hollywood blockbuster movies and top Broadway shows. Extremely reliable, it provides 10 minutes of fogging output from a fully charged battery or up to 150 single bursts with 5 seconds can be produced.
“The machines themselves performed their task very well,” concluded Adrian. “We just had to go through a couple of versions of pipe infrastructure to solve the problem of condensation build up on the dance floor.”
Wherever fog is needed quickly and efficiently, the Power-Tiny is the perfect alternative to ‘normal’ fog generators.
