Dark Phoenix, this summer’s latest installment of the X-Men series was a much-anticipated event. Lighting Dark Phoenix premiere entailed two completely different looks, mirroring the mutant powers of the main character, Jean Gray.
Instead of a red carpet entrance, the event planner, Jennifer Wang, wanted a “cracking ground” texture. We used high resolution glass gobos and extended the look into the main entrance area and its fountain. We also created a “blowing fire” effect for the lobby walls using a mixture of rotating glass gobos and projected a “X”in circle gobo on top of the blowing fire.
In the ballroom, the event planner wanted to represent the electricity of the Dark Phoenix. Our team, led by lighting design Nicholas Blasi, did this with a foundation of vibrant LED blue uplighting with a blend of high resolution glass “electricity” gobos over the walls.
The ground was and
guest seating was washed in a soft gobo texture that carried the electricity
feel throughout the ballroom.
