Relevant Audio + Visual light 2020 SMC Conference with Elation
The 2020 Student Mobilization Conference took place at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, USA. Wichita-based AV production house, Relevant Audio + Visual, designed a complete 3D visualization to fit SMC’s mission and budget, then provided, programmed and operated all audio, visual, and lighting equipment at the SMC Conference. Lighting design was by Brandon Deibler, Director of Design and Operations at Relevant Audio + Visual. Relevant Audio + Visual has been investing in Elation gear for the last five years and in that time has acquired an impressive inventory of fixtures that includes Elation’s Artiste Monet™ moving heads. “From the initial design standpoint, we knew we wanted to place a very strong fixture at the furthest upstage edge of the stage and utilize it for specific moments of worship,” commented Chris Derstein, CEO and Operations Director at Relevant Audio + Visual. As Derstein and his team solidified the design, they knew that with such a strong fixture on deck they would need to position punchy fixtures from above and ended up utilizing 16 Platinum Beam 5R Extremes™, 12 Fuze Z350™ single source Par moving heads and 24 ACL 360 Bar™ moving bar effects spread across four trusses raked low to high moving downstage. In order to widen the look, two ladder trusses were flown on each side of the stage, each incorporating 8 Fuze Z120™ and 4 Platinum Spot 5R Pro™ moving head fixtures.
