Ground Control Reinforces Lighting at Breezer Vivid Shuffle



Pixel tubes on unique slant trussing design were used for Breezer Vivid Shuffle

Pixel tubes on unique slant trussing design were used for Breezer Vivid Shuffle


Breezer Vivid Shuffle is one of the biggest and first hip-hop leagues which has built a vast community and a platform to showcase talent, build skills and share the love for all things Hip Hop. The event sees the active participation of over 6,000 people and about 150 finalists all over India. BVS stands out as a unique event to find the country's best breakers, rappers, Graffiti artists and showcase crews. The show is judged and mentored by leading hip-hop artists such as Raja Kumari, Divine, Dino James, Poppin Pete and many more Indian as well as international names. BVS is hosted and supported by some of the biggest superstars such as Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Vijay Deverakonda, Raftaar and many more. The finals were shot at Famous Studio from 6 to 10 pm In Nov 2021.

Nodwin Gaming wanted to represent Breezer Vivid Shuffle's tagline 'Live life in colour' on the ground event. Manish Chandnani, Head of Live, Nodwin Gaming, visualised a colourful palette with minimal Led usage and to make this vision a reality, he reached out to Ground Control, to execute the lighting design with a massive play of colours that would differentiate each segment such as rap battles, dance, breaking, popping etc. The lighting designer, Naveen Deshpande who's also the Founder & Director of Ground Control suggested having Pixel tubes on a unique slant trussing design instead of using Pixel tubes just as lighting fixtures for effects.

"We focused on using a lot of video content on these pixel tubes. Using MA Lighting's Bitmap technology, we were able to stick to the tagline 'Live life in colour' by using various custom-made pixel mapped content making it a very unique design. We also successfully managed to achieve a lot of text content as well on these pixel tubes, something that hasn't been done before in the country making the stage look spectacular," said, Naveen.

Ground Control utilised Vector works to pre-visualise the whole rig using a GrandMA3 compact console at their studio. The team spent one month building the show in the studio, which helped them to keep the programming time minimal on-site and focused on getting the set upright. Pixel Tubes, Single eye blinders, SGM Strobes and GrandMA3 full-size gears were used at BVS, which was supplied by Star Dimensions a Mumbai-based rental company.

The most challenging aspect was getting the rig ready, Ground Control had one day to lay out all the pixel tubes with the other fixtures. "We spent most of our time building the show in our studio hence managed to keep the programming time minimal on-site and focus all our time and energies on getting them set upright," said, Naveen.

The Ground Control team faced technical issues during the pre-check and realised a few of the single eye blinders were not working due to moisture and had to replace them immediately.

"We had to take the whole slant truss rig down to replace the blinders. Thankfully the back-ups were available on-site and with SD's efficient team we were able to replace those very quickly," said Naveen.

"The team at Ground Control went out of their way to ensure the show looked lit. The lighting looked incredible with the limited time we had available to plan and execute the show. Naveen, Satvinder and his team of engineers have changed the way we look at lighting for live shows. This one had a great play on colours and various elements of design, which connected brilliantly with the various phases we had in the show with different styles of hip hop/dance during the competition. They get deeply involved in the look and feel of the show to ensure we get the best possible outcome," said, Manish.

"The experience was fabulous. We always wanted to keep a new and a fresh approach in our designs and this event was special as we were thinking of something completely out of the box and not driving it by a traditional box or goal post design. It clicked well with the client, and we are grateful for companies like Nodwin who understand this new approach to lighting design, and we are thankful to people like Manish Chandnani, Pratik Shah, Sukriti Chopra, Dharam Saraviya, Raashi Sanghavi and the rest of the Nodwin Team for giving us a free hand in this project," concludes Naveen.
