LED Creative Helps Revamp Blind Date

News Image
LED Creative is working with Scenic Designer Dominic Tolfts on the latest run of the dating show Blind Date for Channel 5.

Hosted by Paul O'Grady in front of a live audience at ITV London Studios, the show features a newly updated set design filled with rich colour and featuring opulent gold fittings against a lavish, deep purple velvet backdrop.

Crafted by Tolfts, the 'framework' façade that encircles the stage areas incorporates LED Creative’s Alpha 60 flex, providing discreet, uniform illumination to subtly highlight the latticework and add intensity to the vibrantly coloured drapes.

LED Creative Project Manager Tim Rees said: "Dominic has made perfect use of our Alpha 60 RGB system to ‘invisibly’ add illumination to emphasise the detail in his design. The overall effect helps build to the layered feel across the backdrop."

A key element in the design is the 'chandelier' that hangs above the stage stairway. Formed using LED Creative Pulse Wands, the feature is controlled via the company's BYTE system, which allows users incredible levels of control; over 2000 pixels on less than a single universe.

Rees added: "As 'plug and play' rental kits, our Pulse Wands are perfect for creative designs such as this. Particularly when teamed with our BYTE controllers. Dominic and the crew have done a wonderful job creating a bold, fun looking design - a perfect fit for Blind Date."
