The Plea – Laser Effects Pop Video
Working with talented Director Dan Ruttley was an experience on this intense laser effects shoot…all completed in a single day… very long day mind you! We supplied 6 high powered rgb lasers and 3 bald blokes and a versatile Pangolin control rig. Lots of mirror work involved to create the boxing ring, which when lit looked fantastic.
Safety is always the primary concern when delivering laser effects in studio, with performers, crew and client moving around the environment with high powered laser effects dangerously projecting into the space. The laser safety officer (LSO) becomes king in this instance and everyone must pay attention and adhere to the safety procedures put in place as its impossible to know where everyone is and where they are looking at every given moment.
High powered laser effects are a unique medium of their own…the coherent light and its ability to bounce and shape has mesmerised for many years and the technology and control keeps getting better, making them more responsive and adaptable than ever before. RGB systems are capable of all the colours of the sun and many more whilst scanning systems have improved in speed and overall angle. It is also possible to position lasers where they could never be positioned before with smaller, lighter units also requiring less and less power to run them…making them one of the most energy efficient high output lighting effects available. Bang for buck there’s nothing like laser effects to fill the “space”!
