The fourth season of the top-rated ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’ franchise in Slovenia was produced by POP TV and featured eight celebrities engaging in a series of singing impersonations – taking off local and international artists - over 12 episodes, which was voted on by a combination of judges and the public, with the public having the final say on the winner.
It was lit by Ziga Krajnc who worked closely with Matjia Kacin who designed a scheme of LED strips and panel products closely related to the set, and scenic designer Milan Vukadin. Ziga this year chose Robe moving lights as the main fixtures on a dynamic rig, including BMFL Blades, Spiiders, LEDWash 1200s, Pointes and LEDBeam 100s, around 80 in total, which were supplied to the production by Event Lighting, Slovenia’s largest rental company.
Twelve LEDWash 800s were at the back and front above the stage and on side ladders. They were ideal for lighting additional performance factors like choirs or dancers.
Twenty-four Pointes were rigged at the back on ladders and on the floor and sides, used for whizzy chases and the powerful and dynamic beam effects for which they are known and loved, together with all the bumps, accents and quick hi-impact transformations that are so vital for this style of television.
He also used 8 x Robe MMX Spots high up at the back, essentially in the final lighting layer position of several making up the wide shot looks. He commented that they were a well-sized profile light for this size of studio space.
Other lighting includes stripes and 20 x Robe LEDBeam 100s fixed to the sides of the set and a ShowLED RGB starcloth which wrapped the entire studio in POP TV’s HQ in downtown Ljubljana.
