Gian Carlo Vannetti uses Obsidian Control’s Onyx platform for various projects
Novellara, Italy-based lighting designer Gian Carlo Vannetti specializes in creating theatrical lighting designs using Obsidian Control Systems’ Onyx platform. He owns several Onyx-driven products including an NX Wing, NX Touch, M-Play, NX DMX, and Netron EP4.
Currently, Vannetti works on the theater side of the industry, collaborating with a dance company that has a creative approach to light. He is using Onyx on three productions - “Indaco”, “Boomerang”, and “Canova Svelato” - with a fourth, “H2 Omix”, coming in May 2023. They all feature transparent screens that reflect video and imagery but also create a mirror effect when dancers are near, complementing the choreography with visuals.
Two on-stage projectors pass effects through transparent screens toward the audience with one at FOH for mapping of the entire theater. “My way of creating these types of shows is through Onyx with a cuelist that has a lot happening, delays and timings on fixture parameters, and if I need some unique FX I have Dylos.”
