Clay Paky Sheds Light On The Interactive Achievement Awards and AVN Awards in Las Vegas

Awards season is in full swing and every genre of entertainment has a gala awards ceremony. Clay Paky Alpha Spot lighting fixtures and were on hand for both the Interactive Achievement Awards at the D.I.C.E. Summit, which celebrated the best in interactive entertainment, as well as the AVN Awards for the adult entertainment industry.

The Interactive Achievement Awards was held by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The honors are also known as the D.I.C.E Awards, the acronym for Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain – the core tenets that power the annual D.I.C.E. Summit.

Lighting designer and programmer Chris Lose pixelmapped the entire stage with stock graphics and custom content implemented by the grandMA2. The pixelmapping enhanced sets crafted by creative director Chris Wu.

Lose also selected a complement of Clay Paky Alpha Spot HPE 1500s as front wash fixtures. “They were very impressive,” he reports. “We were able to get a nice CTO look and a lot of rock ‘n roll looks out of them.”

The AVN Awards take place annually during the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. Dubbed the Oscars of Adult by Entertainment Weekly, the show is broadcast on Showtime Networks and everyone who is anyone in the adult industry attends.

Chris Lose served as house lighting designer for the AVN Awards at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino; Jeff Ravitz was the show lighting designer and David Zuckerman the programmer.

Lose again deployed Clay Paky Alpha Spot HPE 1500s for the ceremony, finding them “great for the camera as well as for nice rock ‘n roll beams. They just punched through everything else that AVN brought in.” Lose notes that the HPE 1500s are particularly effective for making skin tones look good on screen.

“I’m pleased with their lack of maintenance, too,” he says. “I haven’t had to work on them once. They always work perfectly and are super bright.”

Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, commented, “I’m glad that the Hard Rock has had so many interesting shows that our lights can contribute to. Mr. Lose is a great designer and this is a great venue.”

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky.
