Aurora Lighting support LD Gurdip Mahal on Channel 4’s Stand Up 2 Cancer

UK – Aurora Lighting has supported lighting designer Gurdip Mahal and gaffer James Tinsley for the 2018 Stand Up to Cancer live show.

Hosted by Alan Carr, Maya Jama and Adam Hills in front of an audience at Central Methodist Hall, Westminster, the evening featured appearances from John Legend, Liam Gallagher, Little Mix, Michael Bublé and James Corden taking part in celebrity versions of some of Channel 4’s most popular shows to help build awareness of the fight against cancer.

To help set the stage for the show, Aurora provided a mix of automated fixtures, tungsten and LED which the crew used to great effect, creating a stylish contemporary look that contrasted perfectly against the grandiose interior of the venue.

Martin Mac Auras delivered intense colour washes to the performance areas, matched with ProLights Smartbat and SGM P5 LED uplighters plus GLP X4 Bar20 adding highlights to the surrounding walls and internal features. A combination of Claypaky Mythos, Martin Viper Profile, Vari* Lite 4000 heads allowed the team, which included generics operator Rob Bradley and moving lights operator Ross Williams, further versatility and control, adding sharp beams, colour and movement throughout the installation.

Speaking about the production, Aurora project manager Ben Taylor said: “Live events held within prestigious venues such as The Westminster Hall are always an exciting challenge to be involved with. Gurdip and his team created a stunning, modern look to the show, we are delighted to have helped them build the look and to have been part of an event delivering such a tremendously important message.”
