Sam MacLaren of Lightlab Creative Ltd recently specified a Barco/Flying Pig Systems Hoglet4 and extra super-widget for the second series of Mongolia’s Got Talent.
The console is a no compromise front end for any computer running hog4pc software, offering all of the usual hog4 features and the powerful plot view and pixel mapping options. With limited control equipment available in Ulan Bator, Sam had MongolHD, the television channel making the program, supply a Dell all in one touch PC for the brains of the system, and took the hoglet4 with him from the UK.
“It all just works these days” says Sam of the hog system, adding that he had no qualms at all that it could handle the job.
The hoglet4 adds to Lightlab’s equipment roster available direct or via equipment partner OutOfKontrol. Contact Sam for more details.
Lightlab Creative have spent 18 months on tour for the Arctic Monkeys with Sam MacLaren as their Lighting Director, first with Show Designer Andi Watson at the helm, and latterly with Paul Normandale.
The tour, named “AM” after their 5th studio album, spanned 2013 and 2014 and was their largest yet. It featured many spectacular highlights including headline slots at Glastonbury Festival (operated by Andi), Leeds/Reading Festival, Madison Square Gardens in New York, Staples Centre in Los Angeles and two sold out nights in London’s Finsbury Park.
Sam had operated many tours prior to this including several years with Placebo, and also Bloc Party, where Andi spotted him.
