Martin LC Series at sea with Celebrity Eclipse

Martin Professional on Edge at sea

11 January 2011

USA - POET Theatricals designs and produces the shows on the Celebrity Solstice class of vessels. Their creative director, Michael McPherson, features Martin LC Series LED panels in the show Edge on the cruise ship Celebrity Eclipse.

McPherson comments, "I like Martin products and I have used them for years. We use them in all of our shows actually. Martin panels are robust and built well, so for the guys who have to load them in and out, they hold up well."

The Eclipse is the third new vessel in this line of ships, following the Solstice and the Equinox. POET is designing and producing the next three shows on the new cruise ship, the Celebrity Silhouette, which is set to launch in 2011. McPherson says, "I'll use them on the next ship too because they worked out so well."

Martin's LC Series is a semi-transparent, modular system of LED panels, suitable for displaying video and images. McPherson states he used them in Edge because he was looking for a real rock and roll look for this production. "The LC panels gave me that big powerful blast toward the audience that I was looking for in the show. I love the brightness - really awesome. That, coupled with the transparency of the panels, really enabled me to create unique looks on the stage and the set."

Other Martin gear used on Edge includes full colour mixing MAC 700 Washes with motorised zoom and low noise operation, and MAC 700 Profiles with Martin's proprietary gobo animation system. All Martin LC Panels on Celebrity Eclipse were provided by Chas Herrington of Zenith Lighting.
