UK - Game of Thrones, a top rated fantasy drama show, is back for another series and with such a large fan base it has its own companion series, Thronecast, which Richard Martin Lighting (RML) has helped to light again, assisting lighting designer Iain Davidson.

Aired every week after the main show, Thronecast sees Sue Perkins and Jamie East host interviews with members of the cast and crew, interaction with the audience and social media alongside analysis of the previous episode and a preview of the next episode of Game of Thrones.

The rig comprises Robin LED Beam 100s, Sharpy Wash 330s and, much like Jon Snow to Westeros, the VL4000 Spots have made a welcome return to the rig.

The VL4000 Spot boasts 33,000 lumens and features a quiet Studio mode outputting 25,000 lumens, which is ideal for a show such as Thronecast, allowing big impact without distractions.

With high resolution optics, the VL4000 Spot allows centre-to-edge focusing and an extraordinary contrast ratio. A 12-element 5:1 zoom optics system covers a range from 9-47 degrees with no sacrifice to output or clarity. CYM colour mixing, CTO colour temperature correction alongside a dual five-position colour wheel brings smooth colour mixing to the table. And with dual animation wheels and dimming flags combined with independent shutter blades, all this combines to create a valuable and vibrant addition to any stage.
