Look Solutions fog generators are out in full force at Broadway’s Hilton Theatre this year. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang uses a dozen of the German-made machines to create the required atmospheric effects, night after night.
Tiny Foggers are used in several props throughout the performance. Its tiny size and the fact that it’s battery-powered means it can go where no other fog machine has gone before. Specifically, Tiny Foggers are built into the Baron’s car, haircutting machine, breakfast machine, and wrecked car, with several additional units in the sweet factory.
Viper NT fog machines are utilized in smokestacks on the pirate ship and in the sweet factory. The ability of the Vipers to operate in a vertical orientation was an important consideration in their selection. By pointing the foggers straight up, an instantaneous and powerful jet of “smoke” can be created, whereas ducting the fog would seriously hinder both of those attributes. The Viper NT is also maintenance-free – no cleaning solutions are used yet the heater won’t clog – and its reliability has been well proven through its daily trouble-free use in many Broadway and Vegas shows over the past several years.
An Orka fog machine is used at one point to get a lot of fog onto the stage very quickly. At 9,000 watts, the Orka is the most powerful fog generator currently manufactured. It contains 3 heater blocks and 2 fluid paths in an extremely compact housing. DMX control is integral, as is a connector to control an optional external fan.
“We are extremely proud that our products have been chosen for this show” said Nathan Kahn, head of Look Solutions’ American office. “Customers are learning that there’s really something to be said for German engineering – it’s not just a myth. Anyone who visits our R&D and manufacturing facilities can readily see that our attention to detail is second to none.”
