Aurora Lights Up 'The Graham Norton Show'

News Image
Aurora Lighting Hire is working alongside Lighting Director (LD) Chris Rigby to deliver a flexible lighting installation for the new series of 'The Graham Norton Show'.

The 12 week run is recorded live in front of a 600 strong studio audience at the 10,800 sqft Studio TC1, part of the newly re-vamped Television Centre development. Retaining the look and feel of the previous series, the show features a lighting installation designed to easily blend looks created for both the main interview area and musical performance stage.

In updating the specification of the previous studio set up, the LD has replicated the show's vibrant style with a lighting package that includes a combination of Fresnels, LED, automated heads and effects.

Fixtures applied to the design include Martin MAC Auras, Rush Par2 and ROBE Pointes which provide a smooth, uniform illumination across the red sofa plus additional wash beyond the guest interview area.

On the adjacent stage, the show's eclectic selection of featured musical artists requires a fresh new feel each week. Here, high output, versatile Martin Viper Profiles are in place to assist in delivering colour and movement across a broad variety of moods. Here, Chris adds to the mix by making great use of Clay Paky Sharpy, ROBE BMFL and MaxiBrute fixtures along with an array of additional effects including Chroma-Q Colourforce 72 and GLP X4 Bar20 to build the wide range of creative lighting looks that complement each performance.

Commenting on the production, Aurora Project Manager Tim Massey said: "We're delighted to be supporting the The Graham Norton Show. The team have done a super job at TC1; the overall look of main set is fantastic and the crew continue to create an incredible mix of moods to accompany the show's diverse assortment of guest performances."

The Graham Norton Show airs Fridays at 10.35pm on BBC One.
