Cape Town-based rental company Core Productions has taken ownership of a dot2 XL-F, dot2 F-wing, a DMX King Pro1 (which integrates with Dot2 on PC software), and a dozen Longman Facepars.
For the tight-knit group of creative individuals who make up Core Productions, the new equipment will bring ‘peace of mind’. “We are always motivated to come up with amazing ideas, sell it to the client, stress on how we will pull it off, and then pull it off – blowing the socks off people,” says Bernard Gramann, owner of Core Productions.
Gramann says he decided the dot2 console and DMX King Pro1 thanks to the functionality of the operating system and the after-sales service he will receive from DWR Distribution. “The dot2 also has the Resolume Profile which we often use for effects on shows, and my team is very excited about ‘giving it a go’ as well as triggering the dot2 through our Watchout for different video cues and so forth.”
Adding to their existing stock, Core Productions also purchased an additional 12 Longman Facepars. “These are handy light fixtures that are small and punchy,” comments Schalk Botha from DWR. “They are particularly useful for corporate events, lighting up trussing, backlight, sidelight and even for FOH on small stages.”
Bradley Bruchhausen, based at DWR Distribution Cape Town, delivered the gear and will be presenting training to the operators within the next week.
