DVD shoot for Wanessa goes for MA VPU

Wanessa Godói Camargo Buaiz, also known simply as Wanessa, is a Brazilian pop singer-songwriter. In 2009 she released her first single "Fly", featuring American rapper Ja Rule, for the album "Meu Momento". The song became the most played in the country, and was nominated for "Hit of the Year" at the MTV Video Music Brazil Awards. “DNA” is her seventh studio album, and the DVD shoot for this album in HSBC Hall São Paulo – SP was equipped with an MA control system consisting of 1 x grandMA2 light console, 1 x MA onPC command wing, 1 x MA NPU (Network Processing Unit) and 2 x MA VPU plus (Video Processing Unit).

Marcos Olivio, lighting designer and photographic director, stated: “We used the grandMA2 system due to its reliability. The past years working with MA products have given us a lot of confidence. The whole system offers so many benefits and it is easy to program as well, especially the multiuser function, which helped us a lot in realising this project. The MA VPU (Video Processing Unit) was as easy to handle as any fixture. It is a really powerful solution for controlling, live accessing and altering videos, still images and 3D objects in real time. Furthermore, the internal output synchronization of the MA-Net2 ensured the highest frame and DMX synchronicity.”

Joana Mazzucchelli was the DVD director, Ludmila Machado the set designer. Erich Baptista worked as video designer, Paulo Lebrão as lighting and video programmer as well as operator. Spectrum Design e Iluminação delivered the moving lights, MA consoles and MA VPU, Apple Produções delivered the LED screens.
