Poland – March marks a prestigious event in the Polish calendar for those in music circles. The highly-anticipated and arguably the most important music awards in Eastern Europe - Fryderyk Music Awards, held at the International Conference Centre in Katowice celebrate the achievements of musical artists in a night of outstanding design, special performances and of course, the awards. 2019 marked a very special edition of the awards, being the first time in its history the public was allowed to purchase tickets to attend.
Much like the BRIT awards and the MTV awards, Poland knows how to put on a dazzling show and this year was no exception. With exceptional work from all, production - The Festival Group and LIVE along with broadcasting - TVN, the concept was fresh and marked a new level of achievement for the awards.
Green Beam Design of Poland were commissioned to design, conceptualise and bring-to-life the lighting for the event and chose PROLIGHTS fixtures to do it.
Talented Lighting Designer Jacek Chojczak of Green Beam Design along with his crew Michał Parzych and Tomasz Szwelicki, employed PROLIGHTS fixtures including: STARKBAR1000
. All fixtures were operated by the fantastic team at Green Beam Design through an MA Console.
When asked about the choice of fixtures and why this combination, Chojczak explained “PROLIGHTS have always been a range of fixtures that I trust and am constantly amazed with their output quality and lumen levels. The feature set is each fixture is designed for a purpose and to do a job – not just simply to pack it out. The PROLIGHTS Starkbar was chosen due to its flexibility to be used as a wash or light curtain. The individual pixel control was also key for show and the ability to program these seamlessly and reliably was vital. As a member of the same product family, the PROLIGHTS Starkblade was the perfect pairing and offered the continuous pan and tilt features which came in very useful when adding effects. The PROLIGHTS Sunblast was the obvious choice for a powerful LED strobe and blinder, the amazing lumen output filled the space like nothing else.”
The PROLIGHTS PIXIEwash completed the set. This fantastic little fixture features a single source with a massive 6-50° zoom and along with the whole PIXIE range, has become a staple for the rental and production market.
PROLIGHTS distributors throughout Poland - Show Design explained “Green Beam love the fixtures, they are Italian – beautifully designed, very well built and reliable, but they don’t compromise any output whatsoever and often perform better than the leading brands. It’s great that PROLIGHTS pay attention to the market and designers wants and needs and this really shows in their fixtures.”
