Lighting designer and AGi32 reseller in London, Chris Jackson recently designed, built and installed the lighting & rails for this unique opportunity.
In Chris’s words: I spent 4-weeks designing and building the LED obstacles, EL Snowboards, Energlo suits with EL as well as the wiring, controls, etc. We then spent 4-days and nights inside Europe’s largest snow dome building the set, installing the obstacles, wiring, filming…probably the hardest 4-days of my life. I think I totalled about 12-hours sleep as we could only film between 11pm and 8am and it ranged from -7 ~ -25 (C) at night…it was like snowboarding in Vegas…on the moon.
I designed the set using AGi32…of course! The model of the building was built in 3D Studio and then imported into AGi32 via DWG. There is no photometry used – apart from purple tinted floods to simulate what black light might look like – we simply modelled the light source (MONOFLEX LED tape) within the rails and then set the colour and luminance of those objects accordingly.
