Aurora Lighting Helps Install Huge Set For SKY One Production

News Image
Aurora Lighting Hire has worked alongside Lighting Director Gurdip Mahal to install a huge set for SKY One's extreme sports show 'Revolution'.

Filmed at Cardington Studios and hosted by Jackass star Steve-O and Maya Jama, Revolution is an extravaganza of high speed action featuring BMX riders, skates and boarders going head to head across a spectacular custom designed course.

Working with award winning Lighting Director Gurdip Mahal for the eight episode run, Aurora provided a vast array of lighting, control and rigging equipment to light up the large-scale production.

To achieve the intense colour applied throughout the show, a mix of over 200 Robe 1200, VariLite VL3500 and Martin Quantum Wash fixtures were installed to provide a highly controllable, vibrant, uniform wash across the cavernous interior. Almost 100 Clay Paky Sharpy fixtures, with their ultra-sharp beam abilities, were also included in the mix to accentuate the dynamic on track action.

Adding a neon-esque touch to the impressive set, created by Scenic Designer Dominic Tolfts and Art Director Ben Telford, Aurora supplied over 500 Encapsulites, used extensively to accentuate the semi industrial look of the production. Finally, to maintain control over the vast installation, Aurora provided the crew with a pair of ETC Cobalt consoles plus two full size Hog's.

Speaking about the show, Aurora Project Manager Ben Taylor said: "The space at Cardington is absolutely huge, so the task of lighting it is always going to be interesting. Gurdip and the whole team have done an incredible job in creating such a stylish feel to the show that works as a credible extreme sports challenge whilst also looking fantastic, both on the track and off."
