Elite Multimedia Productions, the premiere event production and planning company in Nashville, has expanded its inventory for lighting design with a large complement of Claypaky Scenius Unico and Mythos2 fixtures as well as grandMA2 consoles. Both brands are exclusively distributed in North America by ACT Lighting, Inc.
The Unico and Mythos2 fixtures are earmarked for the 2018 tours of country stars Luke Bryan and Cole Swindell.
“Both Scenius Unico and Mythos2 define their class in hybrid fixtures, and their color saturation is stellar,” declares Jason “Cannonball” Jenkins, Elite’s Director of Operations. “Scenius Unico is one of the best fixtures I have ever seen. It has amazing optics and great horsepower. Up against its closest competitor, the color saturation is top of its class and decimates most other fixtures.
“Mythos2 is a workhorse that has an amazing range of features and functions,” he continues. “My personal favorite aspect of Mythos has always been the large aperture chunky glass that adds a layer of eye candy and some additional depth to a design.”
Jenkins notes that, “we love having multipurpose fixtures that can handle several functions without varying the fixture types too awfully much. We can build lighting systems out of these fixtures, and they can run the gamut: spot, wash, beam. Fixtures like these help me universalize a fleet and don’t require me to have so many types of lights. That helps me streamline a lot of other aspects, too, including repairs, parts and training.”
Elite also invested in a grandMA2 full-size console, a grandMA2 light, three NPUs, four 8-port nodes and two 4-port nodes. “There is really not much to say about the entire MA2 line,” comments Jenkins. “It is the industry standard for lighting control, and I never hesitate when our clients request MA products.”
According to Jenkins, “ACT Lighting, Doug Mekanik and Brian Dowd always give us some of the best treatment and service in the industry. They listen to our needs, both operationally and financially, and work with us as a production house to make the experience great for our clients. The best part is that I would truly consider the ACT Lighting guys friends first and business partners second.”
He says that while “some distributors have an issue focusing on what they need out of a dealer versus what the dealer needs from them, I have never experienced that with ACT Lighting. If we have a problem, they listen and will do just about anything to help us get to whatever solution the client requires. They have gone above and beyond, and that puts them on a very short list of preferred vendors.”
