With its new service office in south Florida, Production Resource Group (PRG) helped lighting designer Tom Kenny "bring down the house" in Miami at the only awards show geared towards Hip-Hop music. With a resume that includes designs for The Who, Santana, David Bowie, Jimmy Page & Robert Plant, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Lopez, as well as numerous award shows, Kenny is well-known for his high profile projects.
For this event, Kenny's lighting package included 48 High End Studio Colors®, 50 High End Studio Beams®, 40 Martin MAC 2000 Wash Lights, 32 Martin MAC 2000 Profiles, two ETC Insight IIx Consoles, four Flying Pig Systems Whole Hog® II Consoles and multiple ETC Source Four® PARs, Lekos, and dimmers.
"I wanted to fill the venue with lights from every angle without putting together a large rig," explains Kenny. "I collaborated with Tom McPhillips to come up with a design consisting mainly of MAC 2000s over the stage and Studio Colors and Spots over the audience."
The Source Hip-Hop Music Awards, created by the hip-hop magazine of the same name, is scheduled to air November 30th on BET.
