Jordan Chance of Luxe Productions, lighting designer Sean Denny, and programmer Garrett Vanderveen decorated the Atlantic Ballroom at the Radisson Blu Aqua for the Gastrointestinal Research Foundation’s annual fundraiser with CHAUVET Professional Rogue R2 Wash moving lights.

  “This is a beautiful room, so you want to support its features with your lighting,” said Chance. “We knew we wanted the whole room to be involved with color.  Not just a feature of the room, but the entire room, so everyone felt connected to the event.  Figuring out placement of fixtures so that you felt that way no matter where you were in the space of the event was our biggest challenge. I’m happy to say we met that challenge with help from Chauvet.”

The 28 Rogue R2 Wash fixtures played a key role in colorizing the room, adding reds, blues, and yellows in to the mix.

“We strategically positioned 14 vertical truss structures at different points in the room and had two of the Rogues on each of them,” said Chance. “From this position, the Rogues painted the entire room in color. We selected colors based on what played well in the room’s décor and the event design,” said Chance. “The smooth color mixing of the Rogues really helped out. We also relied on the zoom to control our coverage and to pump up the energy when the entertainment started.”

The event also featured CHAUVET DJ SlimPAR Pro uplights, which were used as truss warmers and washed different architectural features of the room.

“Between the Rogues and the SlimPARs, we really pulled the whole room together with color,” said Chance. “At the same time, our looks harmonized with the general features of the room.”

Four CHAUVET DJ Intimidator Hybrid 140SR moving lights also added texture to the room during the evening.

“The Intimidator’s gobo features were a big part of our design,” he said. “We used a lot of textured dots, golden rings and straw patterns to create different looks. There were also times we used the patterns to alert people to dinner starting, or to Dana Carvey’s performance. In a way you can say that our lighting really communicated to people and brought them to the same page – which was what we envisioned for our design at the start.”
