Lighting designer Roger Williams knew the LEDJ Pixel Storm 12 Quad MKII battens would the perfect match for the job.
Hey Tracey! is a brand-new quiz show for ITV2, hosted by Joel Dommett, where celebrities play to win cash for members of the public… with some unpredictable consequences. This unique show needed vibrant lighting covering the full colour spectrum to really emphasize the changing mood.
Having used the Pixel Storm 12 Quad MKII battens on previous shows, Roger knew how these pixel mappable fixtures would not only provide smooth colour mixing for the changing atmosphere but would also make superb wall washers and cover larger areas due to their ellipsoidal beam angle.
The Pixel Storm 12 battens from LEDJ also have a 3000Hz refresh rate, ideal for studios and TV applications where flicker-free operation is essential! The fixtures are also extremely versatile with end and central brackets for multiple rigging or floor standing applications. They also come supplied with an eyebrow to reduce glare and hide the LEDs when uplighting.
Roger Williams said, “I was asked to light a new ITV2 show called ‘Hey Tracey!’, filmed at BT sport studios, a new space for a mainstream entertainment show. The original discussions were based on the set being black, but after seeing the space I suggested that they use grey studio walls as a backdrop to allow me to change the colour of the background giving more depth and different looks.”
Roger had recently purchased a large quantity of Pixel Storm 12 MKII fixtures and knew these would be ideal for the set, and when projected on the grey backdrops they truly showcased the vibrancy of the colours that can be created. He added “The battens were perfect, their 10 x 45° beam angle gave a lovely even wash up the walls and the quad-colour LEDs gave a rich variety of colours which worked so well with the set, making the whole look really vibrant… Fingers crossed for series 2.”
