Cameo at the M.A.M.A. Awards in Lithuania


The M.A.M.A. Awards are the biggest music awards in Lithuania and were presented for the 13th time this year. In front of around 8,000 spectators in the Žalgiris Arena – the largest event arena in the Baltics – the most successful national artists gathered and performed their award‐winning songs on the impressive stage, designed by Julius Norušis. Lechas Bedulskij, Pijus Norušis and Andrius Stasiulis were responsible for the lighting design.


Baltic Production Service – which provided more than 250 Cameo lights for the event – acted as the overall technical service provider for the M.A.M.A. Awards.


“For an award show, it is important to develop a lighting design that is versatile and works for different musical genres – from pop to rock to electro and more,” explained Andrius Stasiulis, who was involved in the project from the initial lighting plan to the final time code programming. For the multiple‐award‐winning lighting designer, two aspects are crucial when specifying fixtures: "Light quality and reliability. Cameo offers both in full.” For this year’s M.A.M.A. Awards,

Stasiulis and his lighting design colleagues combined various models from the Cameo OPUS and ZENIT series to create a dynamic overall picture. In addition to the OPUS X Profile as a front and rear light, the OPUS H5 hybrid lights were primarily used as beam lights for all kinds of air effects.



Also not to be overlooked were the 100 ZENIT P130 LSDs, which were arranged as a light matrix above the stage. For wash effects and as strobes, the ZENIT W600 SMD Wash Lights were the perfect choice, combined with ZENIT W600 Wash Lights as audience blinders. Stasiulis has already realised several sensational projects with large numbers of Cameo lights in the past, including the open‐air opera production “The Flying Dutchman” and “The Contract” for the closing ceremony of the European Capital of Culture events in Kaunas. Over the years, the OPUS X Profile has become an integral part of Stasiulis’ lighting equipment: “With its large zoom and fantastic colour mixing, the OPUS X Profile is my permanent fixture as a front light.”



When asked which part of the show at the M.A.M.A. Awards Andrius Stasiulis remembers in particular, he emphasises a performance in which the large LED video wall was only used to a very limited extent: “If I had to single out one performance, it would be that of the duo Leon Somov & Jazzu. Here, the lighting design took over the main part of the staging and the Cameo lights were able to show what they can do particularly well.”
