RENT "Test-Drive" Recognized Nationally

Our guest lighting designer for RENT was Chris Wood, who is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Lighting Design at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Chris has a working relationship with Elation Professional Lighting Products, and he arranged for them to provide us with a significant package of lighting equipment for Chris to "test-drive" on our production. 

Chris said "They are very excited to work with us. We should be getting 6 moving light wash units, 4 moving light profile units, 6 LED Ellipsoidals, and 6 LED strip lights. This is around $65,000 of gear."

 

The work Chris did with RENT was recognized in both national and international magazines, showcasing the working candles and LED lights in Angel’s dress.
