Martin Lighting Solutions Light Up The Christmas Season

News Image
Top Lighting Designers use Martin lighting solutions for major Christmas TV spectaculars.

Three leading, and highly influential, TV lighting directors have been making extensive use of fixtures from Martin, a HARMAN Professional brand, for their design solutions in the lead-up to the busy Christmas season.

Tim Routledge, Stuart Pring and Oli Richards have all sourced their Martin inventory from Nick Edwards' new TV lighting rental resource, Version 2, deploying mission critical solutions on a number of recent high profile shows.

While Routledge was responsible for Gospel Christmas, BBC2's big Christmas Day show, and also recently lit Tom Odell Radio 2 in Concert, Pring handled another Radio 2 In Concert show – this time with Robbie Williams – and also The Brits Critics' Choice Awards for Brit TV.

Oli Richards, meanwhile, used Martin fixtures on another Christmas Day special – David Walliams Celebrates Dame Shirley Bassey – for BBC1, and has also regularly used their industry standard MAC Aura wash lights on Alan Carr's Happy Hour for Channel 4.

Nick Edwards states: "Throughout my career I have been known for identifying workhorses. In my opinion the Aura range has long established itself as the wash light of choice for TV lighting directors; the Aura XB, with its even brighter output, now makes the HMI wash lights often surplus to requirements – and with no lamps to change it expedites our return on investment."
