Everything Shines For Renegade At Battersea

London-based design house Renegade produced and supplied all the technical design and equipment - lighting, video and visuals, set and scenic elements plus sound - for the SHINE 2010 Benefit Dinner, staged at The Boiler House, a new temporary structure located inside the shell of London's iconic Battersea Power Station building.
The event featured a rocking 'greatest hits' performance by superstar Bryan Ferry, and raised large sums of money for the charity, which supports additional educational initiatives encouraging children and young people to raise their achievement levels.
Renegade has worked closely with SHINE for the last seven years, producing all their live events.
The high profile 2010 Benefit Dinner was project managed for Renegade by Mike Fidler working closely with Nick Gray as Lighting Designer.
Andy Cobb filled in with conceptual designs along with technical production manager, Chad Higgins, who completed the team.
Renegade's visual design included stunning large format video projections onto the visible end of the Power Station building, producing a lively and interesting visual montage that entertained guests during dinner, for which they commissioned Nathan Prince of Silent Studio to produce bespoke content.
Renegade and SHINE wanted a very specific look and feel to the event, and the venue allowed Renegade to bring in some of their own suppliers.
Nick Gray said: "Our key creative and production people have now all worked on several projects together, so there is a fluid ongoing exchange of imagination andcommunications which really makes the workflow on a complex, multi-layered show like this efficient."
With a limited amount of time on site, the Renegade team visualised and pre programmed as much of the visuals and lighting as possible in their WYSIWYG suite. This was then moved to Silent Studio's east London HQ for a day for fine tuning and to ensure that everything was harmonious both inside and out.
The weather was a major technical challenge whilst working on site, with heavy rain and gale force winds hampering the rigging and upping the pressure on the already short get in and technical set up times.
Renegade were pleased to report that despite this, the entire installation withstood the wind intact and there were no interruptions to power.
Commented Nick Gray: "We factored in as much pre-planning and preparation as possible. Having our visualisation facilities on hand really made a difference to the time we could devote to developing the show and results we achieved for the client."
