Stage lighting powerpoint

  1. 1. Production Arts BTEC Subject 1 By Connor Johnson Stage Lighting
  2. 2. Name: Parcan Accessories:  Gel Frame  Adjustable arm  Bulb is encased unit  15 amp plug  G-clamp  Safety Chain Beam Angle: 24 degrees Function: Used in music gigs for general cover and is also aesthetically pleasing. Used during a ‘Chase’ sequence and also to add depth with colour. Comparison: Par Cans are good for lighting up certain areas of the stage, I would choose this light in place of a Source Four as a spotlight would be too specific and not provide a good general cover, also the Par Cans are excellent at creating chases.
  3. 3. Name: LED Parcan Accessories:  G-clamp  Adjustable arm  Safety chain  13 amp plug Beam Angle: 15 to 40 degrees Function: Used for general cover. Provides indirect beams of light. Can be controlled from the lighting desk. Can change colour automatically. Comparison: I would choose an LED Par Can over a regular Par Can as an LED is much better, an LED is more efficient as the diodes are energy saving bulbs, these also do not cause the light to heat up, an LED is also better by the fact it can change colour on its own and does not need gels to do this, this can be done directly from the light board.
  4. 4. Name: Source Four (Modern Spotlight) Accessories:  G-clamp  Safety chain  Built in Shutters  Gel Frame  15 amp plug Beam Angle: 19 to 50 degrees Function: Used to isolate objects or people on-stage with very bright light beam. The light can use different shapes because of the built in shutters. Can make either soft or very defined edges to light beam. Comparison: I would choose this over another light such as a Minuette Profile as the light beam on a Source Four is bright white whereas a Profile’s light beam is a brownish- white light, also a Profile does not have built in shutters whereas a Source Four does.
  5. 5. Name: Minuette Profile (Classic Spotlight) Accessories:  G-Clamp  Safety Chain  Gel Frame  15 amp plug Beam Angle: 15 – 30 degrees Function: This older spotlight was used before the Source Four was introduced, this light is considerably different from the newer version due to its light being a brownish-white light, the Profile also does not have built in shutters and must be placed manually. Comparison: I would use this light with a group of Profiles instead of using both a Source Four and a single Profile as the Source would draw more attention to the subject under the light because of its brighter light, therefore using Profiles would give equal light to all of the items/people underneath it.
  6. 6. Name: Pebble Convex (Fresnel) Accessories:  G-Clamp  Safety Chain  Gel Frame  Barn Doors  Pebble Shaped Lens  15 amp plug Beam Angle: 7 – 38 degrees Function: Used for a general cover of light but can also be used in place of a spotlight as the lens is different from other Fresnel lenses. Comparison: I would choose a P.C over a Par Can as both provide general cover but a P.C’s light beam can be directed in whatever way the performer wants whereas a Par Can cannot.
  7. 7. Name: C.C.T. (Fresnel) Accessories:  Rigid Glass Lens  Safety Frame  G-Clamp  Smallest Fresnel  Adjustable Knob  Gel Frame  Barn Doors  15 amp Plug Beam Angle: 18 – 57 degrees Function: Used for general cover. Has a rigid glass lens to give a defused spread of light. Beam angle is adjustable. Comparison: I would use this light in place of a P.C as this a C.C.T. has a defused light which blends in well whereas a P.C is very defined and will not blend in well.
  8. 8. Name: Selecon (Fresnel) Accessories:  Barn Doors  2 Adjustable Knobs  Rigid Circular Lens  15 amp plug Beam Angle: 6 – 60 degrees Function: This light is used for ‘General Washes’ and can have its light manipulated. Comparison: I would use this light in place of a Source Four as its light beam can be manipulated and can be used in general washes.
  9. 9. Name:1K (Fresnel) Accessories:  Safety Chain  Barn Doors  15 amp plug  Gel Frame  G-Clamp Beam Angle: 74 degrees Function: This light can be used in a general wash and gives a more defused light. This light is mainly used as a backlight to define people on stage and make them look more 3D. Comparison: I would use this light in place of a Par Can as a 1K gives a more defused light and can make people stand out on stage as a backlight.
  10. 10. Name: Flood Light Accessories:  Safety Chain  G-Clamp  Gel Frame (can be used)  15 amp Plug  500 – 650 watts Beam Angle: 60 degrees Function: This light is used to literally ‘flood’ the audience with light, this can be used to make the audience feel like part of the show. Can also be used to shine on giant white sheets with gel frames for effect. Comparison: Using this light is much better for use on an audience then an LED because an LED is too specific and will not be able to light the entire audience.
  11. 11. Name: Birdie Accessories:  Safety Chain  G-Clamp  Gel Frame  Barn Doors  13 amp plug  Halogen bulbs  Aesthetically pleasing Function: This is the smallest of all stage lights. This light is best used at art exhibitions to light exhibits, it can also be used to shine on the audience for effect but not enough to draw attention from the main performance onstage. Comparison: As it is used for subtle lighting, I would choose this light over lights such as a LED as an LED is too bright and will blind people such as in an art exhibit whereas a Birdie will give it enough light for it to stand out.
