Show Systems Creates Spirited Visuals with CHAUVET Professional

Godspell, a captivating musical structured as a series of parables based on the Gospel of Matthew, was on full display in a recent production of the show at Hellyer College in Tasmania, Australia. Providing students with the visual tools with which to recreate the spirit of the original performance was LD Michael Westcott of Show Systems Australia, who specified 12 CHAUVET Professional Maverick MK2 Spots and four Rogue R1 FX-B fixtures for their production. Westcott and Systems Engineer Matthew Adams hung half of the Maverick MK2 Spot fixtures on overhead trussing. The remaining half were arranged on the stage deck to create a scissor-like curtain of light effect. “The director wanted to be able to go from very basic looks to big looks in an instant, and I was able to achieve this very easily using the generous selection of gobos and punchy output of the Maverick MK2 Spots,” commented Westcott. In addition to the Mavericks, Westcott positioned four Rogue R1 FX-B units on above stage trussing. Thanks to fixture’s infinite rotation of both pan and tilt for each of its five individually controllable 15W RGBW LEDs, a number of crisp beams and lightning quick movements could be achieved. “Although the R1 FX-B might not have been the obvious choice for a theatrical production of this kind, the fixtures enabled me to try something a little bit different, and in the process create some refreshing looks within what is essentially a traditional theatre environment,” said Westcott. Supplying a blanket of wash effects on stage were 14 CHAUVET DJ Core 3×3 fixtures, positioned on rear trussing amidst the RI FX-B and Maverick fixtures. By pixel-mapping the nine RGB LEDs on the Core units, Westcott was able to create all-encompassing wash effects. “The 3×3 created a number of classic wash looks for the stage,” he said. “I especially like that the fixture can be combined in a modular way, which in turn creates a unique visual aesthetic at the back of the stage.”
