Asia 70
Asia 70 Scenic
The scenic production design for Asia 70 was fraught with challenges but in the end it turned out a beautiful project that had a contemporary yet elegant appeal to it. I designed the stage to be multi leveled, and threaded through the design was a southeast asian theme, pagoda, and mountainous farm ledges with foliage everywhere. The centerpiece was a beautiful, multitiered-interiorly-lit plexiglass mountain, lined with lenticular perspex to diffuse the light well.

The tree obelisks were another interesting piece which was interiorly lit. I used the latest Adobe CS6 photoshop high res features for large scale prints that were printed directly on the clear plexi front. The contoured stairs were all lined with aluminum and I side lit them with varilite VL5s. ShowFX's Dave Mendoza did a fantastic job fabricating this one for us and scenic install super, Mike Fortescue, head carp Derek Armstrong, and art director Arte Contreras were key in getting the set there and installed in time for the show.

Asia 70 Lighting
Asia 70 was a blast! Thank everyone for your incredible efforts in making this beautiful show what it was. I designed the lighting to light most of the structures internally which gave them a gorgeous glowing quality. PRG supplied the show with 14 Badboys and they were as bold as ever. It was the first time I used the Color Force fixtures and I must say I was totally impressed with the output on camera. I used 4 in each obelisk, 2 on each side, and they internally lit quite well for television.

In most of the medium and closeup shot backgrounds were the contoured stairs, so I wanted them to either be interiorly lit or reflective. The reflective option was affordable in this case so it worked out side lighting them. Whenever you side light sets on camera, it takes a good amount of control to watch contamination levels coming from the sidelights onto the fronts of faces. Warm colours can help at obvious times, as can lowering levels on one side. Programmer Andrew Giffin does a fantastic job of managing these levels.

Asia 70 - Scenic Rendering of Ctr Mountain. This was a preliminary proposal rendering I did to sell the centerpiece mountain. The centerpiece was fashioned after a farm tiered asian mountain as you see in villages that are perched upon mountainous regions. I wanted the mountain to be able to accommodate dancers walking from one side to the other. Also, it was part of the idea to have a river running through the gorge of the mountain.
