Corona: High Frequency Productions selects Chauvet for Wub Life livestreams
Juan Ocampo, the owner of High Frequency Productions, has teamed up with Wub Life Entertainment, a Chicago area company that does dubstep, house and EDM shows, to create what has become weekly livestreams. The idea began in late April 2020. High Frequency contributes the facility and all the gear for the online shows, which are streamed on Twitch.tv and Facebook, while Wub Life provides the performers.
LD Aaron Clair and VJ Barry Sessons ran the rig that High Frequency furnished. Clair made ample use of the lighting rig’s output, sending blinding patterns of beams in every direction, punctuating his show with flashes to the beat of the music, and, at times, seeming to turn every one of his fixtures into a giant blinder. The lights flowed seamless with the video panel displays.
“We tried not to hold anything back just because this was a livestream coming out of a warehouse,” says Ocampo. “Our goal was to deliver the intensity that you’d find at a great club show. The Rogue R2 Washes in our rig played a big part in creating these looks. We used them behind the DJ booth to create a glow around the artists.”
Looking back at his early livestream efforts, Ocampo says that he underestimated the spatial needs of the production. “The first shows were all put together fairly quickly with little time to tweak,” he says. “By the time setup, we realized we needed more space so we went bigger.” The needed space was available in the High Frequency Productions warehouse.
