If you are planning a large event or wedding, custom event lighting design is essential to make your event space stand out and be personal to you. Using a professional audio-visual supplier such as On Tour Events can have several benefits to help make your imagined event a complete reality, giving your guests a unique and individual experience to your special day or corporate function.
Lighting can be used in a number of ways at an event. It can highlight a single area of the venue, it can add to the atmosphere of the room or it can help with and live acts such as a band or performance on stage.
Custom lighting design for events is defined when a meticulous plan is made for the lighting involved at a show. This plan would include; how many and what lights to use, where each light is to be positioned and what effect each light will create. With a fully detailed plan of the lighting effects, a proposal is made that clearly explains how the lighting equipment will be installed for the clients' event.
+PLANNING A CUSTOM LIGHTING SHOW
In order to kick start the planning process, we firstly require a site visit. Walking through the venue with our clients gives an opportunity to discuss the aspirations of the event as well as the possible lighting options for their show. Our team of designers then process all the information from the visit onto a 3D render and a visual representation of the proposed event can clearly be shown.
From here all the lights can be pre-programmed a computer system and shown via a video clip to the client. All requirements including the use of specific colours or lighting effects can also be included at this point to achieve the desired effect. Scenes such as entrances, awards or when it’s time to party can also be pre-set and ready to be triggered at a moment’s notice on the day of the event.
Pre-programming light shows have many benefits to an event. It allows the engineer the ability to be creative and precise with their designs, allowing intricate effects to be carried out at a moments notice. Clients may also have a long list of demands and effects they want to include for their event. These scenes can then be custom-designed, then organised in the order of the show. This is vital if your event is to have many intricate changes within the lighting – such as award shows, or events where there are a number of different acts on stage such as a talent show. Pre-planning the lighting show also gives the client the peace of mind that what is programmed prior is exactly what is wanted for the actual event.
+CUSTOM LIGHTING OPTIONS FOR BRANDING AND MONOGRAMS
If you want to be unique with your custom event lighting hire, you may want to consider using some of our bespoke, tailor-made lighting options. These one-off effects made only for your event and used to make your event absolutely unique to you and / or your brand. With the use of personalised gobos your brand, logo, monogram or message is able to be projected anywhere within the venue.
A GOBO is a stencilled plate that is placed Infront of a light source inside out lighting fixtures. Each gobo is cut out with the clients personalised image. These can be made a number of materials including glass and metal and can include coloured pigments to match a logo or image. Once the light is turn on the stencil image is projected with in the event space producing large lit up image. Guests at an event are able to clearly see this marvellous effect, making your image stand out amongst everything else at the party.
Many weddings have used this effect on dancefloors and on walls displaying the couple’s monogram. This makes the event very personal and also looks great on photos. The projected image usually includes the bride and grooms initials and can have details such as the date of the event or venue where the wedding is taking place. This adds a very personal touch and a beautiful feature to include
Many corporate businesses, when hosting events, use custom gobos to project their brand or name of the event. This is a very powerful eye-catching effect that is clearly visible by all the guests. Used on stage backdrops, step and repeat walls as well as being projected on the exterior of venues having a custom gobo sends a clear and bold message to your guests that can be seen from a large distance.
There a several benefits to include a custom gobo projection at a corporate event. They are a cheap and effective method to broadcast your brand or event compared to large format prints or screens. They are also reusable, meaning they are a perfect solution when the effect needs to be used again and again on conference tours or trade shows with various locations.
Lighting can be projected at certain times of the event and can be changed throughout the function to include different gobos or lighting effects. This cannot be achieved with printed Foamex boards that cannot be moved or changed when guests are present. The Gobos can be fully controlled by our lighting engineers meaning movements, brightness and colours can all be changed during the show, which is also unique to this effect.
Overall having custom lighting for your event makes it completely one-off, standing out amongst other events and functions. It allows the lighting to be designed to meet the clients' exact requirements and the demands of the show.
