Robe flies on The Millions
30 July 2012
Israel - Robe continues to be a popular choice of moving light for the leading Israeli TV shows, and especially with one of the country's top lighting designers Ofer Jacobi - who specifies Robe constantly for his busy schedule of productions.
This recently includes the popular Fly On The Millions quiz show, recorded in Studio 4 of GG Studios, Neverelan, Jerusalem, the country's main TV production facility. This show is in its third series and will soon be rolled out in the US via NBC and also in Europe.
Contestants answering questions wrong are spectacularly dumped from the set via a trap door opening beneath their podium. The show is broadcast on prime time Friday night, on Channel 10.
Lighting is being supplied by Danor Rental and the Robe count includes 20 Robin 300E Beams, 10 ColorWash 700E ATs, six ColorBeam 2500s and 10 ColorSpot 1200E ATs.
Jacobi's initial starting point involved conferring with the set designer Avi Fahima and the series editor. The editor explained the format and rules of the programme and from that, Jacobi formulated what lighting and effects were needed where and when in the environment.
Jacobi comments, "Using Robe has definitely made my life easier. I am very happy especially with the new LED ranges."
