Event Details

LD Cameron Birchill lit Beartooth’s The Journey Below livestream on July 14 with a rig supplied by Squeek Lights, which also supplied the metalcore band’s six-week U.S. tour in support of their latest album, Below. That tour kicked off with an Aug. 14 show at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. Squeek Lights owner Victor Zeiser is no stranger to the band, having worked with them for years and serving as LD for their 2018 tour. And while Birchill has lit the band for numerous live events, he turned to Zeiser for advice on lighting the band for the livestream broadcast. “Because this was for video, it differed from a typical live show rig, so I bounced design ideas off of him and his team at Squeek,” Birchill explains. “They helped me make the adjustment from live show to livestream with things like LED refresh rates, color temperature, etc. so that it all looked good for the camera.”
