Lectern Rock

What is Lectern Rock? Lectern Rock, developed by the Belong Group for Westpac Banking Corporation, is a business presentation with difference; a hybrid of circus, theatre and rock concert. Lighting Designer, Scott Allan developed the production with Designer Andrew Bellchambers, early last year and after several successful presentations in Melbourne (Malthouse Theaters), put the show on the road for the rest of corporate Australia.

The ninety minute event, which includes live rock bands, live video, circus routines, acrobats and the odd light-saber dual, is aimed at delivering the latest Westpac initiatives to staff and clients alike.  

Scott has used 16x VL500, 15x Mac700, 10x TW1, 24x Source Four, 12x MRX/CXI colour scrollers, 12x LED IPix Satellite, ArKaos media server, Barco 10k projector, midi & click-track sequences and Unique Hazers.  

This was also a great opportunity to put GrandPA Lighting (http://www.grand-pa.co.uk/report%20viewer.html) new show file interrogation software to the test. Scott said “I found Report Viewer extremely helpful in tidying up preset focuses and working out what presets and pallets we had used throughout the show and where, and conversely what we had “missed”.”  

Lectern Rock is currently touring Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.
