Philips Selecon PL1 MK II luminaires make touring debut on Land of Our Fathers

01 November 2015

Described by The Stage as a 'breathtaking masterpiece', Land of Our Fathers focuses on a group of Welsh miners trapped underground as Margaret Thatcher is elected. Kemp specified five PLprofile1 MK II and two PLfresnel1 MK II luminaires, using them to provide an underlay of saturated color to the various lighting states.
"We wanted to create a gritty, oppressive world, which becomes more heightened as the piece develops," explains Hartley T A Kemp. "The PLprofile1 MK II LED units were used to suggest light glistening off wet rocks, to help convey emotion especially during some of the more hyper-real sequences, and to add colour when needed."

Philips Selecon delivers ultimate versatility on world premiere of Peter Gill play

05 June 2015

International lighting designer Hartley T A Kemp has turned to the versatile color changing of Philips Selecon's LED range of luminaires for the world premiere of Peter Gill's new play As Good a Time As Any. "I was very impressed with the match to tungsten in the RAMA LED Fresnel, with the lack of warming at lower levels the only noticeable difference," says Kemp. "Sometimes this could be a hindrance but I can also see it being a help, especially when working with a white or pale set and wanting to maintain cleanliness of colour.
