Imagination: Land Rover Discovery Launch

Project Overview

  • In a show stopping reveal on 28th September featuring Bear Grylls, Sir Ben Ainslie and Zara Phillips MBE, the new Land Rover Discovery was unveiled to the world.
  • Blinding Light worked with Lighting Designer Harry Tabner from creative agency Imagination to light the record-breaking launch which took place in the grounds of Packington Hall, Warwickshire.
  • The new Land Rover Discovery showed off its unrivalled capability on a Guinness World Record-breaking LEGO structure of London’s Tower Bridge made from 5,805, 846 LEGO bricks, beating the previous world record by 470,646 pieces.
  • Blinding Light provided equipment to light the main vehicle reveal. The rig included Martin Mac Viper Performances, RGBAW Outdoor LED Pars and Litesky Aquabeam moving lights. The reception marquee made use of Blinding Light’s increased inventory of Mac Aura XBs and Colorforce LED Battens. Over fifty battery powered wireless fixtures were used to illuminate the vast grounds of the estate and the various vehicles and exhibits spread around it.
  • The reveal was programmed by Ben Cash and Adam Hodgson on an MA2 system comprising 1x Full Size, 2x Light and 1x Command Wing consoles which were responsible for merging and running over 70 universes of data from 12x NPU processors tied together by our Luminex Gigacore 12 data system.
  • Crew Chief for Imagination was Ross Corbett.

LD Harry Tabner commented: “I was very pleased, as always, to be working with Blinding Light on this unique event. The constantly changing objectives were always met positively and enthusiastically by Loz and the team. The lighting department at Imagination are a small team within a busy agency, so having the ability to trust suppliers to make the right decisions and advance projects without my direct interaction is invaluable. For me, the knowledge that whatever the problem, the solution is only a phone call away, is essential. The quality of crew and equipment is of course great, but it's the fantastic support and service that sets Blinding Light apart.”
