Mack Back with a Quack

Aurora returns to the studio with LD Oli Richards for SKY1’s new series of Duck Quacks Don’t Echo.

Quick fire comedian Lee Mack is back on prime time screens with a new series of the popular fact-finding panel show.

Filmed live in front of a studio audience, lighting director Oli Richards is taking care of the lighting installation, with assistance form crew chief David Francis.

Set designer Markus Blee has created the backdrop to the show using an array of pictorial acrylic blocks arranged to form a cascading effect. Aurora worked closely with the designer to populate the boxes with hundreds of metres of LED ribbon, adding colour and depth to the set pieces.

Elsewhere, to wash the set Aurora supplied Martin Mac Auras augmented with a selection of Viper Performances that add versatility with their superb framing and focusing capabilities. Martin Rush pars are also included in the installation to keep the audience illuminated during camera sweep and wide angle shots.

Talking about the show, Aurora MD Nick Edwards says: “This latest series for Sky1 is a welcome return for us; it’s always great to work with both Markus Blee and Oli Richards on any project as they constantly push for new and exciting ways to employ the fixtures we supply.”
