Robe Trips Light Fantastic with MegaPointes
UK – Technical production specialists Light Fantastic Production Services has just made a large investment in the latest Robe moving light technology. The order includes Robe’s brand new MegaPointe and LEDBeam 150 moving light fixtures plus a selection of Pointes, Robin 600 LED washes and DL4X Spots in a custom white bodied finish.
Based in Elstree just north of London, the company services a wide range of prestigious projects providing lighting, audio, video and scenic services. The company also provides extensive dry hire services to other industry clients.
The total investment value is over a quarter of a million pounds and the kit will be used to service Light Fantastic’s action-packed ongoing project schedule and dry hire requirements.
Working primarily in the premium events sector, from high profile experiential events to spectacularly jaw-dropping private events, the company founded and headed by Rob Myer has built up a reputation for imagination, excellence and attention to detail.
The 25 MegaPointes will join the Robe Pointes already in Light Fantastic’s inventory which are out and working constantly on a variety of shows and events. The company made its first Robe purchases around 2012 and now almost exclusively stocks Robe intelligent fixtures.
Rob’s choice of MegaPointes was based on the power and multi-functionality of the fixture and the belief that it will become a “totally rider friendly luminaire just like the Pointe”. He thinks it’s a very versatile, well built, robust all-in-one fixture and a perfect choice for the diverse nature of Light Fantastic’s work.
Added to that, the great service and support from Robe UK is a major consideration that underlined the purchase decision.
Light Fantastic have already taken delivery of its 25 LEDBeam 150s which went straight into action on an experiential event for superhero movie, Justice League, staged for ten days within a disused building in central London. The lights are being used to help re-create the moody ambience of Batman’s lair.
These powerful and tiny sized fixtures can be squeezed into almost any space and are an upgrade to Light Fantastic’s existing LEDBeam 100 stock, which continue to work hard.
Launched earlier in 2017, the LEDBeam 150 is already proving a big hit due to the intensity and extremely useful 3.8 to 60 degree zoom, which opens up a whole new range of creative and practical possibilities, together with the excellent colour range.
The white bodied Pointes, Robin 600 LED wash and DL4X Spot fixtures will be perfect for events in specific settings and spaces where working with white hardware integrates and blends the technology more discreetly into the environment. Light Fantastic is a unique supplier of white equipment in the UK with a range of lighting and audio equipment available for dry hire; the new Robe fixtures will form a central part of this offering.
Rob concludes: “We know that Robe’s quality and build means the kit will go on working day-in-day-out with minimal issues. LDs are always happy to see Robe kit on a show and these are all reasons why we’ve invested so heavily into their product range.”
