Potential to revolutionize TV scenography, says DoP Massimo Pascucci.
San Fernando, CA (United States), 15th October 2020: GLP’s pioneering new KNV collection has
been used for the primary time in Italy, on two excessive profile broadcast TV exhibits. The primary of those was
Radionorba Vodafone Battiti Reside, the place DoP Massimo Pascucci, featured a big number of
KNV Dice, KNV Dot and KNV Line within the scenography, working alongside set designer Luigi
Maresca and present director, Luigi Antonini.
This common musical present is produced by Radionorba and broadcast by TeleNorba and
Mediaset on the Italia 1 channel. Hosted by Alan Palmieri and Elisabetta Gregoraci, it options
main artists and their hits of the summer time.
Usually, the normal 5 episodes are recorded throughout the months of June and July in 5
completely different places that symbolize the principle cities of Puglia. Nonetheless, this 12 months, because of the Covid-
19 pandemic, the present would have been cancelled have been it not for a supreme manufacturing effort
and the speedy drop off of infections. Thus a single location was chosen—the sq. instantly
in entrance of the Aragonese Citadel of Otranto—to be able to keep away from shifting tools and manpower.

mixed to kind an enormous, modular graphic show.
“In reality, the iconography of the present is concerning the coronary heart, therefore the Battiti (beats),” he continued.
“So the Cubes have been used within the centre of a construction that represented the center Itself, housed in
the central a part of the roof. The opposite GLP gadgets (Line and Dot) have been used across the stage
perimeter, giving form and linearity to the construction.”
Bespoke lighting scenes and states have been programmed for every of the acts, as Pascucci
defined. “For every tune a special graphic is produced which is then displayed on big LED
partitions, that make up the principle scenography. The luminaires have been calibrated to this to be able to

He stays in little question as to the numerous methods during which the distinctive KNV collection enhanced the
scenography—and might see limitless prospects for the long run. “The acute brightness and

typical highly effective beam motion delivered by automated spots. As an alternative it’s doable to
focus extra on the stylisation of the scenes by integrating the lighting system with graphics, as far
