The Design Oasis and Helm Projects use Chauvet fixtures at Suwannee Huluween
This October, the Suwanee Huluween Festival, a three day event located in Florida’s Suwannee Music Park, featured over 200 Chauvet Professional fixtures throughout the grounds as well as at two of the stages. The fixtures were supplied and installed by The Design Oasis.
Abbas Ritscher and his team at The Design Oasis, which included John Hollignshead and Joe Donnelly, positioned 150 Colorado 1-Tri IP fixtures around the lake that served as the “festival centerpiece.”
They used the RGB fixture to wash monsters, goblins, mad beasts and other freakish figures in a range of scary colors. Drawing on the Rogue fixture’s 16-bit master dimmer, they also relied on the interplay of moving light and shadows to endow the ghoulish scenery with menacing sense of animation.
In addition to illuminating scenic elements, the Colorado units were used to direct light on the lake itself as well as the surrounding trees to impart a haunting sense to the festival grounds. Ritscher also installed the fixtures on the festival’s Lake Stage, which was designed by Andy Caroll.
At Suwanee Huluween’s big Amphitheatre Stage, Justin Casey of Helm Projects and his programmer Alex ‘Herm’ Schneider called on a collection of 30 Rogue R1 FX-B fixtures, also supplied by The Design Oasis.
Casey’s design called for twenty of the 5-headed Rogue R1 FX-B units to be positioned (five apiece) on each of the four PA scaffold towers that flanked the stage, two on each side, with the remaining ten being arranged vertically and horizontally on upstage truss. With the five moving heads on each Rogue R1 FX-B being aimed in various directions.
