UNITED KINGDOM – Blue Peter is one of the longest running shows in television history! Richard Martin Lighting (RML) are lucky enough to have been involved in the show for a long time now and continue to support Lighting Designer Lee Allen, who is hugely influential in the studios and TV world. He is so interested in products, technical trends and the latest innovation, that when he is super keen to try a new fixture on one of his shows, everyone know they are onto a winner!
Recently RML announced the purchase of the new Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE K20. The K20 is a new and exciting wash light, a breathtaking beam light, and a creator of completely new spectacular visual effects. Its unparalleled versatility makes it an extremely interesting creative tool for all lighting designers. What makes it really interesting and different is a completely new feature: the front lens may be rotated to create lots of small bright compositions, which may be opened and closed like petals. By adding colors and dynamic graphics, the B-EYE generates never-seen-before graphic light effects.
Blue Peter was one of the first RML shows for the B-EYE’s. When asked about his experience so far with the units Lee said “The great beam effects are very quick to achieve with the shape function, this mode keeps the number of channels to a reasonable amount and within minutes nice interesting beams were in the air” .
A great testament and one that hopes we can expect to see them on lots of Lee’s specs in the future.
