Rosco’s Contributions from R313 surpass $31,000 to Light Relief
Rosco CEO Mark Engel presented Light Relief with its annual benefit cheque from the proceeds of Rosco’s 313 Light Relief Yellow colour filter. The cheque was presented to Light Relief co-found Rick Fisher on Rosco’s booth at PLASA London.
During the presentation, Engel had this to say about Rosco’s continuing support of Light Relief, an organisation established to support entertainment technicians in times of hardship: “When we introduced Rosco’s Supergel 313 Light Relief Yellow in 2004, you [Rick Fisher] were quoted as saying “I wanted the Light Relief Yellow to be a warm, late afternoon, sunny colour…,” which seems to me the perfect sentiment for this colour and this charity – a comforting ray of light when it’s needed most. Thank you to every designer who uses Supergel 313 on stage for helping us help our community offstage. We donate the proceeds from this colour here every year, and it is a satisfying moment for me. It truly is my pleasure to present $3026 to Light Relief today, raising our support to over $31,000 to date.”
As he accepted the check on behalf of Light Relief, Mark Fisher replied: "Knowing that we have regular donations, such as this from Rosco, enables Light Relief to respond swiftly to those who need our help - and sometimes our help is needed extremely quickly."
Light Relief Yellow 313 was created by Rick Fisher on behalf of the Light Relief charity, the objective being threefold: to offer additional exposure to this important endeavour, to provide a revenue stream to the charity and to offer a useful yellow colour filter for designers everywhere.
