300m Beach Projection-
Robe BMFL Spots blasted stunning, crisp, clear images of Australian broadcaster 7 News’ logo from 300m away, positioned near the top of the southern hemisphere’s highest building, Q1.The four 24m wide gobo images seared into the sand of the beach at Surfers Paradise right below the 322m high Q1 … for the launch of the new 7 Gold Coast News operation. The ingenious optical stunt was one of a number of high impact logo activations created for the event by lighting designer Adam Volz of TLD Services, who was asked by Channel 7 to sprinkle some visual magic and get their logo out there captivating audiences and involving known local landmarks.
Adam and the client decided on the concept of four logos beamed on the sand – the beach is right at the essence of Gold Coast culture and community – covering an area of approximately 100 metres wide as part of the visual sequence of WOW factors. The shot gave some serious camera candy for aerial ‘beauty shots’ enmeshing the logo and an instantly recognisable Gold Coast landmark.
Collaborating with Pete Coorey from Select Audio-Visual Hire in Brisbane on the project, Adam knew he needed a seriously bright stadium lighting instrument.
Having used BMFLs for numerous shows in many venues and scenarios, he hoped that for this application, the luminaire would exceed his expectations – and push every single lumen of light out of that intense 1700W output. The next challenge was to find a location for the four BMFLs. Adam suggested one of Q1’s penthouse apartments just below its famous observation deck … to which the occupants and building managers agreed. The fixtures were programmed and controlled locally in the penthouse by Adam. A full up and down movement from the sand to the water on the beach involved was only around an inch of movement for the BMFL Spot heads, but covered over 60m to the water! He programmed a 100% movement speed to ensure this fine movement was absolutely smooth.

There were plenty of toys to play with. The rig consisted of; Mac700spots, Mac101's, VLX washes, X-Spots, Duet's, new NRG spot and washes. There was also 8x Martin LC panels running Media Master off LSC Clarity. The LX system was controlled by a Roadhog Fullboar with extra wing.

Guys&Dolls The Musical -
Terrace along side Theatrical Director Miss Rachel Morel, TLD supplied a creative edge to their annual musical. Incorporating a 13m x 6m grey sharks tooth scrim with a 7k Panasonic Projector, the visual design had a lot of flexibility with animation and tricky lighting to make the scene changes and complicated transitions come to life with technology.
All controlled by a LSC Clarity system, both running the Media Master server and lighting. Two full universes where used with 3 channels to spare. The in-house rig + 8x Highend X-spots, 8x Mac301's and some sunstrips made the show come to life.
A big thank you to the support team.
Looking forwards to the next production with the college...
