Creative Rental Solutions provides Visual Mystique for Fantasia with CHAUVET Professional


Forming the central visual backdrop to the Fantasia Festival’s stage was an awe inspiring representation of an exotic burlesque palace measuring 15-meters tall by 45-meters wide. Providing dramatic visuals to accentuate the mystique of the stage was an impressive lighting design by Creative Rental Solutions (CRS) that included a collection of CHAUVET Professional Rogue R2 Wash, RH1 Hybrid, COLORdash Par H12IP, STRIKE P38, and COLORado Panel Q40 fixtures. “Given the ambition of Fantasia’s organizers to create ever more impressive stages, we went back to the drawing board to come up with something especially unique this year” said Thomas Vandekerkhove of Creative Rental Solutions. “Our solution was to develop a lighting rig that awarded a certain mystique to this year’s stage theme by creating powerful looks and vivid colors.”

To douse the palatial stage designed by CRS’s Lieven Tacq (complete with three large burlesque masks) with a variety of pulsating atmospherics, Vandekerkhove and his team incorporated a carefully curated combination of 18 Rogue R2 Wash, 18 RH1 Hybrid and 28 COLORdash Par H12IP fixtures into their design. The resultant blend of saturated colors and powerful wash effects gave a vibrant feel to headliners Gers Pardoel and Cherry Moon Trax, while awarding a sense of mystery and exoticism to the surrounding stage area. “Having the output and power of the Rogue and COLOR dash combination was essential for a stage of this magnitude,” continued Vandekerkhove. “What’s more, even though the majority of the festival takes place during daylight hours, we were still able to create powerful looks to underline its multi-sensorial mystique.”
