Blackburn, UK, based lighting rental company HSL supplied Vari*Lite moving lights and over 700 Pulsar ChromaStrips of varying lengths for the new ITV series, Magic Numbers, produced by CPL and aired live weekly in the prime time Saturday night slot of 8 p.m.
The show’s lighting was designed by Tom Kinane, who has used HSL to supply lights to numerous shows in recent years. HSL’s Project manager was Sean McGlone, who comments, “It’s always good to work with Tom and his team. The show looked fantastic, interesting and different, and we’re specially happy to be working on such a high profile new production”.
