UNITED KINGDOM – Since Soccer AM first started in 1995 it has developed a cult following, with generations of y oung men spending their Saturday morning in front of the TV to tune into features such as ‘Can He Kick It’, ‘Big Tackle’, ‘Fan of the Week’, ‘Third Eye’….not to mention the Soccerettes!!
In addition to the weekly TV show hosted by Helen Chamberlain and Max Rushden, every year Soccer AM also host a live event with music and special guests. This year it included performances from legends Soul II Soul and rapper Tinchy Strider.
Long term LD Malcolm Reed designed the show which was supported by Richard Martin Lighting (RML).
Malcolm always sees this show as an opportunity to use the latest products available and this year was no different. The rig included Sharpys, Nexus 4x4s, Jarag-L’s and our most recent purchase the Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE K20.
The high performance wash light not only has a great beam but it also creates a completely new visual effect. The front lens can be rotated to create lots of small bright compositions, which might be opened and closed like petals.
The fixtures zoom ranges from 4° to 60° and it is therefore suitable both for environments with low ceilings such as small theatres and TV studios, where large angles are extremely useful, and for shows in arenas or large environments, where a tight zoom is perfect.
The World Cup is going on and it’s a really exciting time for football fans: what better way to kick to start proceedings that with a festival!
