Take 15 “live” dinosaurs, add in elements of escapism, excitement and factual information, and what’s the missing piece of the puzzle? If you answered “special effects”, you’ve nailed it down. And so have the talented folks at Illinois- and California-based theatrical lighting company Upstaging, Inc., who used Look Solutions’ water-based Unique2 Hazer for the new theatrical production WALKING WITH DINOSAURS – The Live Experience North American tour.
A largesse show slated solely for arenas, the production calls for the thin, translucent atmospheric effect that the Unique2 Hazer delivers for visual enhancement.
Dinosaurs return to the earth in a live theatrical arena show. Based on the award-winning BBC Television Series and after playing for ten sold-out weeks in five cities in Australia, WALKING WITH DINOSAURS is now on tour in North America for two years. 350,000 Americans have already seen the production since it opened in July 2007. The show also incorporates other technologies borrowed from the film industries – like computer hardware and software used to control the “animatronic” creatures featured in this riveting show.
The German-made Unique2, a follow-up of Look Solutions’ Unique Hazer, incorporates a plethora of features heretofore non-existent in a hazer, such as an Internal Timer and the new Haze-Density Control System (allowing for an individual profile of a show to be programmed). Staging personnel appreciate Unique2’s minimal (approximately 60 seconds) warm-up time, continuous output, adjustable (at the touch of a button) pump, fan, density and output, minimal sound and easy-to-read LED display (for the reading of adjustable data). And one can of fluid (guaranteeing minimal fluid consumption) ensures up to 50 hours of continuous output.
“We love the Look Solutions products for their dependability,” comments Upstaging’s Equipment Manager Tony Skiroock. “The hazers have been low maintenance with no serious issues.”
Tour Support Coordinator Chris Johnson adds, “The staff at Look Solutions has always been very responsive and have filled our every request.”
