When The University of Rhode Island brought their RC4Magic 900MHz system, they quickly learned that they too could make magic with ease.
Lighting Designer Chris Woods interviewed James Horban (Assistant Professor of Design & Theatre Technology), Haley Ahlborg (Master Electrician), Sam Cote (Student Master Electrician) and Meghan Turner (Student Master Electrician) and learned how they incorporated RC4 Wireless into their design and production process.
For the production of ‘By The Way, Meet Vera Stark’, the set featured three revolves, and a RC4Magic DMX4dim lived within the center to power sconces, uplights, practicals, and PAR16s for the entryway.
On the production of ‘Into the Woods’, their story was told through the lens of a bookshop employee. The story itself was borne from a magical book whose characterizations were driven by light throughout the show. This project was entirely student-built, and done in a way that allowed the load to be disconnected for charging without disassembly.
