Marc Wasserman has been designing the lighting for comedian Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out” tour, employing Rogue R2 Spot fixtures from CHAUVET Professional.  

“My Rogue R2 Spots are my go-to moving light,” he said. “I can’t say enough good things about these versatile movers.  Some of mine have been on the road, touring for six months at a time.  They’ve bounced around in trucks and been placed in temporary storage near O’Hare Airport during the winter weekdays (sometimes at 20° below zero), and they still make me a profit on weekends.”

Using some older ellipsoidals and pars for front light, Wasserman positioned two of his Rogue units upstage left and two upstage right, with the remaining four flown over center stage, just downstage from the Wild ‘N Out banner. From these positions, the Rogues provided some intense specials, colorful downlighting and engaging aerials.

“We got some great looks from the Rogues,” said Wasserman.  “As the tour has expanded into arena venues, we’ve added more fixtures from local vendors, but I always like to have my Rogues in there, because of their versatility and brightness.”

 “Front and rear lighting truss positions can get tricky because of the fly points or lack thereof,” he added. “Also, video projection and sightlines are a challenge, as all of our shows are selling out.  Another issue is that some venues do not allow pyro/fx. We’re addressing that by using (CHAUVET Professional) Vesuvio RGBA foggers.”
