Mega-Lite and PR Lighting fixtures were recently installed on the set of competition show Esto Es Guerra. Esto Es Guerra, which translates to “This Is War” in English, features celebrity contestants who compete in a series of obstacle courses for a trophy at the end of each show. Lighting Designer, Rodolfo “Rudy” Echauri Jr of EVP Productions turned to Mega Systems, Inc. for the set’s lighting needs.
The set required fixtures to add eye candy that would appear well on camera. Echauri selected 20 XLED 1037 fixtures by PR Lighting to make the set come to life. When the game starts, Echauri has the lights move around to amplify energy on set. Then, the lights are programmed to display circular patterns during game time. Says Echauri, “the XLED 1037 produced exactly what I was looking for in a lighting fixture.”
Additionally, the 20 N-E Color FX9 fixtures were used to light up the walls of the scenic gladiator set. The N-E Color FX9 is also capable of eye candy effects with individual pixel control.
The lights all receive DMX via Mega-Lite’s newest wireless DMX transmitter and receivers, the Mega Air DMX. It has worked perfectly for the job. “Utilizing Mega Air DMX saves us the expense of running cables and it looks much neater and cleaner,” says Echauri.
The producers are very happy with the installation of the Mega-Lite and PR Lighting fixtures on set. The show is currently in its second season.
