A multi-platinum recording artist. A super model who has graced campaigns by brands like Versace, Sephora, Calvin Klein, and Bulgari. An actress who has won numerous film industry awards… Elodie’s talents are as multi-faceted as a diamond. On May 12th, her gifts shined as brightly as this precious stone too, as she performed before a sellout crowd at the Mediolanum Forum in Assago.
Contributing to the glittering magic of the evening was a massive and dazzling light show by Blearred, a dynamic lighting design studio with offices in London and Milan. Filling the venue with intense monochromatic color palettes and bold videos fed to large LED walls, the design captivated fans as it drew them closer to Elodie’s magnetic personality and performance.
A lighting rig of international level dimensions and quality energized the show, which was produced by Vivo Concerti. At its center were 68 CHAUVET Professional Color STRIKE M motorized strobes, exclusively distributed in Italy by Zalight.
Ivan Russo, Technical Project Manager from Blearred, had this to say about the Color Strike M fixtures. “We used the Color Strike M during the event in 24 channel mode. Of the 68 units, 40 were positioned vertically on ladders between the LED wall portions, while the remaining 28 units were used as backlighting and effects on a raised upstage catwalk. Their full color wash, and white strobe functions gave the concert a vibrant and engaging atmosphere.”
Russo, who along with Davide Pedrotti, served as lighting designer of the show, credited the versatility of the Color STRIKE M with helping the team create a wide range of shades and color combinations, which, in turn, helped to emphasize the energy and intensity of the show.
“We definitely will continue to explore the possibilities offered by the Color Strike M, as we are always looking for creative ways to deliver unforgettable and engaging shows to our audience,” concluded Russo. “The Strobe module was particularly striking. The double row of LEDs generated an extraordinary visual impact, perfect for the moments when a great energy was requested. The strobe effects helped create an immersive and dynamic experience for viewers, boosting the intensity of the show in the key cues.”
Such bursts of energy were very needed for the lighting design to keep up with Elodie on this night in May, since this star’s talents are not only multi-faceted, they also shine with an intensity all their own.
