Adlib Supports Jimmy Carr U.K. Tour

PLSN Staff • International News • February 5, 2010

{mosimage}LIVERPOOL, U.K. – Adlib, which has worked with comedian Jimmy Carr for the last four years, once again supplied lighting and AV for his latest U.K. tour. Adlib's Tim Spilman designed and operated the lighting rig, which included a front truss with eight Martin Professional MAC 250 wash lights and three 90 degree ETC Source Four profiles on side booms positioned on each side of the thrust stage for downstage side illumination.


There were also six floor PARs, fitted with front filters to eliminate facial shadows, and a black back curtain was up-lit with another five floor PARs.


There were three main performance positions – centre stage, sofa stage right and table stage right – each of which was lit with two profiles and two floor cans.


Spilman programmed and operated the show on a Hog 3 console.


Adlib's Tristan Bryant coordinated the video, which featured two 12-foot-by-nine-foot Stumpfl side-of-stage screens, each fed with a Sanyo XP200 projector. Two Sony D50 cameras were positioned at FOH and to the side of the venue, and fed into a Panasonic MX70 vision mixer with Datavision Preview monitors. Playback was from Laptop and DVD and controlled via an Analog Way Opus. Iain Christie mixed the show.
