Producers Julian Marks and Clive McElarney of Event 360 in London called upon lighting designer Vince Foster and Bandit Lites UK CE Lester Cobrin to illuminate the team introductions for the fourth annual NFL game in Wembly Stadium, between the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos. The match was held on Halloween and had the definite Halloween flare you would expect! This was again sold out, just as the other three have been.
In order to produce a visually exciting show, but minimize power consumption, heat and impact on the environment, Foster chose to use a huge number of Chroma Q Chroma Strip Mark II's as well as GLP Impressions for the bulk of the dramatic effects effect. There are, of course, the obligatory smoke machines and pyro effects, all coupled with the always-stunning cheerleaders!
The demand for American Football in London seems insatiable and more events of this nature are being planned in the future. Bandit is proud to be involved in this great event every year and looks forward to many more in the years to come.
