RML provides intelligent line-up for Ant & Dec

15 May 2003

UK - The award winning TV duo Ant & Dec arrived back on our screens recently with their live fun-filled prime time show Saturday Night Takeaway. With the same set as last year, lighting designer Tom Kinane was keen to create a very different look with his chosen lighting rig, which consisted of 12 Clay Paky Stage Zoom 1200s, 12 Vari-Lite VL2416s, 32 Martin Pro MAC 500s and six MAC 600s, all supplied by Richard Martin Lighting.

Working closely with the moving light operator Svend Pedersen, Tom comments on his choice of lighting: "The Stage Zoom 1200s are always a trusty lamp to use. The gobos dressed the set, which worked out great for the music numbers. The VL2416s were positioned to wash the set from behind, with the intention of punching colour into the twin wall, which is notoriously hard to light! I chose the MAC 500s because they are good 'workhorse' lamps and provide interesting beamage on the set, which I found particularly effective for the music numbers. I used them for backlighting an individual's position - for example I could iris in on Ant & Dec in particular spots. The MAC 600s were treated purely as backlights on the music numbers and on Ant & Dec."

Kinane was keen to thank the lighting team for their support during the show, including senior console operator Tony Nuttall, moving light operator Svend Pedersen, gaffer Dave Clements, Bob Balls and Steve Embury. The show was vision controlled by Sean Moon with Derek Murgette filling his shoes when required.
