Robe MMX Spots on SA trivia show

The first series of Musiek Trivia is currently being broadcast on Kyknet, DSTV

15 August 2012

South Africa - Technical production company Blond Productions supplied Robe Robin MMX Spots and 600E Beam moving lights to a new games show, Musiek Trivia, recorded at ZSE Studios in Johannesburg.

They were asked to come up with a visual concept for the show by presenter Johan Stemmet, having worked with him on several series' of the popular music quiz Noot vir Noot for SABC.

Musiek Trivia features two contestants at close quarters in the studio facing each other off - Weakest Link style - and is fully focussed on the subject music trivia, encompassing specific eras from the 1950s to the present.

Blond Productions' Christiaan Ballot and Peter Rieck combined creative forces to produce a streamlined set and lighting design that involved maximising the small studio area with scenic LED set elements and clever lighting.

Very prominent are six 'totems' vertical truss pillars, with the six Robin 600E Beams mounted near the top pointing downwards into the contestant area, together with12 MMXs, six on the trusses, and six dotted around the floor shooting beams up into the celling behind the contestants. The light weight of the fixtures was a great asset in this situation.

The Robes and other lights involved were operated via a grandMA console.
