Stage lighting design skills in the party

Location of main effect lights

There are not many computer effect lights in our station, so how can they play a greater role? First of all, it is to meet the needs of cameras, and each camera is at least given a fulcrum of "light". Our station usually uses four cameras to record programs. Cameras 1 and 3 cross shoot at the front. Camera 2 is responsible for covering the big view and small panorama. Camera 4 is a rocker arm.

During the shooting of the program, the use of camera lens in No. 1 and No. 3 stands is the largest. Therefore, the shooting fulcrum of these two stands should be satisfied first. I choose these two points at the back of the two corners behind the stage, close to the corner of the rear bottom curtain, and keep a safe distance from the bottom curtain. Each point is equipped with 6 computer color changing lamps, which are divided into two rows, one row of tube lamps with color changer marshalling on the left and right sides for extension of this point.

In this way, the upper part of camera 1 and camera 3 is no longer empty. Almost every camera has rich color and full picture. The fulcrum of camera 2 is selected at the back center of the stage, extending to both sides with the center of the last two lamp poles as fulcrum. The last pole is hung with 16 tube lamps of color changer, the second pole is hung with the remaining 6 color change lamps, and the four scanning lamps are hung in the gap between the four rows of 2000W backlight lamps of color changer. In this way, camera 2 is either enlarged panorama or reduced panorama Jing, the back three points will match the lens to give it a satisfactory picture.

The fulcrum of No. 4 rocker arm is generally selected on its lifting frame. Usually, on the theme or representative scenery of the party, effect lights or fixed-point lights are used to make several effects for rocker arm selection. This is to use the existing lamps and lanterns to meet the needs of the camera lens as much as possible. Colleagues say that the picture taken is better than the scene. Maybe that's why we are "opportunistic".

Highlight the theme

Sometimes it's not bad to change channels in the middle of watching TV, but after watching the program for a few minutes, you can't see the theme, which will make the audience unclear and the leaders and sponsors dissatisfied. Therefore, in light distribution, we should first consider highlighting the theme and the important signs related to the theme. Such an effect is usually achieved by fixed-point light or mobile light.

In order to lighten it and make it have a three-dimensional sense, it is necessary to choose a suitable angle, such as oblique side light. At the same time, according to the atmosphere of the program, a suitable color paper is sandwiched on the lamp mouth to make the theme more distinctive. In addition, in the back and both sides of the performance scene, in order to set off the theme, some scenery or plants will be placed embellished. Of course, these also need to be decorated with light, with appropriate color paper, the effect of using side light or side backlight is far better than using smooth light.

For example, two green bamboos are placed on the right side of the stage. If the 2kW spotlight sandwiched with green paper is used to decorate the opposite position on the right side, it will make the bamboos look more green and vibrant.

Height of pole

In large-scale programs, there are many actors with great momentum and rich content, so the height of the effect lamppost needs to be raised from the back to the front in turn.

Small programs, such as song club, individual concert, etc., are mostly in the form of individuals. Individual programs have 4-6 people to dance with clear subjects and few actors. The height of the effect lamppost can be lowered from the back to the front in turn, which can achieve two purposes:

First, the backlight lamp with the color changer is more colorful with the smoke, and the beam of the computer effect lamp is more prominent, making the space of the performance area colorful;

The second is that the performance area is full and not empty. The overall feeling is like a soloist standing in the stamen, surrounded by the petals around, with rich vision and long artistic conception. Of course, such an effect should be applied flexibly and not in a single style.

Application of color light

Color is the keynote of the program. In the process of the program, with the development of the plot and the needs of the characters, we can display the environment with light and color changes, render the atmosphere, create the sense of stage space, time and the artistic conception required by the program, and use appropriate color and light to reflect different atmosphere, which will deepen the festival Objective infectivity will undoubtedly play a role of icing on the cake.

The color of light and the direction of light column have strong plasticity. It can imprison people in a spot cast by the top light, and can also extend the stage into a vast universe. In recent years, black curtain is often used for shooting evening parties. Except for the special needs of individual programs, in general, I put a pair of primary blue paper on the sky and ground row lights. Its function makes the black curtain not die in black, and the quiet blue can give people unlimited reverie, which makes people feel the infinite extension of the rear of the stage visually.

The color light in the program should not be too much, and the color light in a program should not exceed three colors. The change of color and light should change with the ups and downs of music. The movement of light column of computer effect lamp should also determine the movement speed and action form with the atmosphere of program and the speed of music.

In general, I set the color changer of four rows of backlight lights to dark sky blue or green to make the backlight base light; I use four sets of downlights and three sets of color changing lights sandwiched with the color changer to make the atmosphere color light of rendering program mood. When using dark sky blue or green as the background light, the pictures taken are clean and have depth of field, and at the same time, there is no lack of Mengmeng artistic conception.

While the beam of downlight and color changing light is relatively hard, with strong directional plasticity, rich color and fast transformation. At the same time, the positions of these groups of lights are designed for camera positions. Therefore, it is more appropriate to use these groups of lights as the main effect lights to render the atmosphere of the program.

If we take the light color as the mood of the program to participate in the creation, we can create an ideal TV effect.
