Private Party: The Great Gatsby

Private Party Great Gatsby 2

Project Overview

  • In December Blinding light were asked by Mirage Parties to assist with turning a dark & draughty agricultural barn into a scene from the Great Gatsby and a Chinese street scene for a 50th Birthday celebration.
  • Turbo took up the challenge, and with limited rigging positions and limited power proceeded to transform the space. Using Clay Paky K10 LED fixtures as room washes to both spaces helped with weight & power issues. Miltec battens uplit the Great Gatsby space and played onto white voiles very effectively to dress the area.
  • The Street Scene required a number of generic fixtures to accent the various props and provide custom “window” gobos to the dividing drape, whilst the band stage in the Gatsby space benefited from Clay Paky Sharpy wash lights, Clay Paky HPE 300 profiles & additional Miltec battens to really bring the space alive.
  • Rick Parfitt’s RPJ band provided the evening entertainment and produced a faultless show. The show was programmed on a Chamsys MQ100 desk by Martin Seymour.
