Planetshakers Conference 2013

Planetshakers Conference 2013
Resolution X - Lighting & Rigging - Planetshakers 2013

Planetshakers City Church in Melbourne held their annual conference between the 2nd and 5th of April at Hisense Arena. Again this year, Planetshakers turned to Resolution X to supply lighting, rigging and crew to the conference. The production design was a collaborative effort between Production Director Dan Cornwell and Paul Collison of Eleven Design. The scale of production was the size of any international touring arena act with a comprehensive set that looked amazing while also being flexible enough to provide different looks over all four show days.

Dan was happy to expand on why Resolution X was again chosen for this very large production. “In my experience, working with Resolution X over the last few years, the support and quality of product that comes out of the warehouse is always exactly what’s originally promised. Tim has a stellar crew and his gear is always 100% reliable”.

Dan and Paul’s design took advantage of ResX’s new MAC Vipers and extensive stock ofBlinder Bars, Martin MAC 700 Washes, MAC 101s and MAC TW1s as well as Clay Paky Alpha 700 Beams and Sharpys for those vital mid-air beam effects. A very large number of offset and irregularscreens provided by Mediatec added depth to the overall look of the show. Paul operated the show using two GrandMA 2 Lite Consoles with an extra fader wing for added control. System processing was via two Grand MA NPU processors.

A rig with 200+ moving lights and more than 150 conventional fixtures doesn’t just stay up in the air by itself, the ResX crew with help from Capricorn Rigging hung over 75 motors and 330m of truss.
