Imagination - Range Rover Velar World Premiere

Range Rover Velar

Project Overview

  • Taking its place alongside the design greats of all time, the Design Museum welcomed the new Range Rover Velar. Blinding Light were on hand to support Lighting Designer Jonny Milmer, Head of Lighting for creative agency Imagination who produced the reveal.
  • Velar is the first ever vehicle to be launched and displayed at the new Design Museum, which opened to the public in November 2016 after moving from its original Shad Thames location. The new model was simultaneously shown for one night only in a pop-up display on Kensington High Street, West London, alongside the Range Rover Evoque, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover.
  • Blinding Light provided equipment to light the main vehicle reveal and to light the vehicle line-up outside. The rig included Martin Mac Aura, Martin Mac Viper Performance, SGM P-5 LED Wash and SGM G-Spot moving lights. Blinding Light were able to commission a system of custom brackets and adapters, even creating custom fixture bodies and wireless DMX receivers to blend into the surroundings of the museum. This enabled wireless control of the moving lights through the venue tracklight installation, meeting Jonny’s brief for a lighting system so discrete that it was practically invisible as an overlaid event system.
  • The reveal was programmed by Ben Cash on an MA2 system comprising 2x MA2 Light and 1x Command Wing console which were responsible for merging and running control over a Luminex Gigacore 12 data system. Crew chiefs for Blinding Light were James Tomlinson and Simon Clench.
