Since 1985, Fisher Productions has been supplying a complete production service to a wide array of corporate and private clients. Their quality bespoke service has secured the company as the preferred suppliers at many of the UK’s premier visitor locations including the National Portrait Gallery, the V&A and the Tate Modern on the South Bank. Its sister company, Fisher Hires, has recently invested over £5m in new lighting fixtures and control. Head of Fisher Lighting and Hires, Robert Baker explains: “When investing in our new kit we chose to purchase some key items from Ambersphere Solutions who have a reputation for really knowing and understanding the industry, backed up with strong service support which was important to us.” Ambersphere Solutions is the exclusive distributor of MA Lighting in the UK.
The L’Oréal Colour Trophy Tour 2015 was the first event to benefit from this new kit. The lighting design for the tour included a dot2 XL accompanied by a dot2 Node4 (1K) in charge of control. Clay Paky Mythos fixtures, Clay Paky K10 B-EYE and a number of Clay Paky Showbatten 100 were used as well. Baker comments: “This state of the art kit helped us create a show loaded with impact and dynamic looks with plenty of visual effects and atmosphere.”
The visual style of the show is of paramount importance to this live hairdressing competition which toured the UK. Corporate accounts director at Fisher Productions, Naomi Ambrose says: “We are proud to produce this prestigious tour, allowing us to be creative in our concept and design whilst ensuring that all staging and logistics work to best effect across the mix of regional venues.”
Excellence in customer service is a quality that Fisher shares with Ambersphere Solutions as Baker testifies, “Our recent investment included MA control, Robert Juliat Super Korrigan followspots as well Clay Paky units throughout our purchase process and beyond, Matt Cowles from Ambersphere’s technical sales has been a helpful, friendly face!”
