WorldStage Supports Vibrant Design on New CBS Series “The Job”

The-JobNew York (February 14, 2012) – When the new reality competition series “The Job” debuts on CBS early in 2013 studio segments will showcase lighting design by Christopher Landy of Vibrant Design LLC with support from WorldStage, the new brand for Scharff Weisberg and Video Applications Inc.

“The Job,” from veteran producers Michael Davies and Mark Burnett, pits five talented candidates from across the country who face off in a chance to win their dream job at one of America’s most prestigious companies.

“We basically turned the Grand Ballroom of Manhattan Center into a TV studio, building out walls adding an entire grid, all while working on a very tight schedule which was further compromised by Superstorm Sandy,” says Christopher Landy. “It was a very intense production schedule for ten shows during two of the worst weeks to try to do production in New York City.”

Landy was tasked with delivering “a daytime look” for the show. He specified a wide array of lighting fixtures from WorldStage, mainly LED’s for the scenic elements. These numbered over 200 Color Kinetics iColor Cove MX Powercore, 72 Color Kinetics iWhite TRs and 250 Color Kinetics Color Blast TRXs.

The automated lighting package consisted of 20 VL-3000 spots, 20 VL-3500 spots 6 VARI*LITE VL-2500 spots, and 60 MAC Auras. The complement of conventional lights featured more than 150 ECT Source 4 Leko’s and 18 Source 4 WFLs. Two Aramis and three Ivanhoe followspots from Robert Juliat were also on hand. Control was via a GrandMA 2 with back-up.

For WorldStage, Ben Rollins was the Account Executive for the project.

“It was great working with WorldStage – but on this one they really stepped up to the plate, overcoming enormous obstacles due to the storm,” says Landy. “While half of new York Sat in darkness the lighting and rigging loads ins were seamless, thanks to an amazing crew and the support of Ben and the folks at World Stages.”

WorldStage Inc., the company created by the merger of Scharff Weisberg Inc and Video Applications Inc, continues a thirty-year legacy of providing clients the widest variety of entertainment technology coupled with conscientious and imaginative engineering services. WorldStage provides audio, video and lighting equipment and services to the event, theatrical, broadcast and brand experience markets nationally and internationally.
