Lighting designer Jonathan ‘Leggy’ Armstrong on using High End Systems’ SHAPESHIFTERs and Hog 4 on David Guetta.

> “Being an EDM show, it’s all about being dynamic,” says Leggy. The SHAPESHIFTERs have proven to be extremely versatile. We can keep it simple and treat them almost like a standard wash fixture, then let loose with a barrage of effects. Whereas I would normally use wash fixtures to supply a base and rely on my profiles and beam lights for the impact, I found them taking a back seat as the SHAPESHIFTERs could give me the animated beam action we wanted, but in a form we’d never seen before. SHAPESHIFTERs give the ‘shock and awe’ that we are looking for, but I can also see the potential to give much subtler effects, which I look forward to exploring on a different production. The output is even more impressive than I’d hoped, which is important for the scale of shows we do which can be very large open air performances. Also, the Indigo back-lighter has a much bigger impact than I first imagined; it’s a great effect in its own right. So far the fixtures have been extremely reliable – I’ve finished every show with 100% functioning.”
