1st Ballyeaston Presbyterian are refurbishing their main hall, we have supplied specialist audio and lighting cables and will be completing the project with custom facility panels which we have designed and build in house.
Jordan Victory Church in Carrickfergus have converted a warehouse complex into their new church. ACK Productions has supplied the church with a state of the art stage lighting system including custom lighting bars and facility panels (built and tested in house) dimmers, generic and LED based lighting fixtures and memory lighting console.
New Robe Moving Lights
Twelve Robe Robin 600 Spot and twelve Robe Robin 600 LED washed added to hire stock.
The units have proved to be very popular with lighting designers and crews with their ease of rigging, being very light 20Kg for the spot and 10Kg for the wash, and very versatile.
The units have been used on several events including the anniversary production of Titanic the musical in the GOH, several productions for Northern Ireland Opera (L.D Kevin Tracey) and have just completed the tour of Titanic Boys (L.D. Sinéad McKenna).
New Heavy Fog Machine
We recently added a Antari DNG-200 Heavy Fog machine to hire stock. This unit produces a similar effect to "dry Ice" but without the hastle and danger of working with blocks of CO2 / boiling water and electric.
The DNG-200 comes with a built in smoke machine and fridge unit - to cool the smoke so that it stays low to the ground, it operates from two 13amp plugs and can be controlled manually at the machine or can be triggered by DMX.
Please call for further details.
Belfast Metropolitan College
We are please to have been chosen to fit out the main studio and mixed media studio in the new Belfast Metropolitan College's Springvale Campus.
In the main studio, 40m x 30m x 5m we supplied and fitted a complete Doughty Studio Rail suspension grid from which are suspended adjustable height Pantographs.
In the mixed media studio, 5m x 5m x 4.5m, we supplied a flexible fixed lighting grid complete with wired facility panels for dimmer outlets.
In both studios we also fitted a perimeter Doughty Six Track curtain track complete with diverter / storage sections to allow for the easy changing of curtain material between White Cyc / Full Blacks and Chroma Green Screen all curtains were supplied & fitted by ACK Productions Ltd.
October was a busy month for ACK Productions & AEL Video
we were lucky enough to work on several high profile events.
The first event was for Bombardier in their new multi million pound factory.
Pierre Beaudoin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bombardier along with Prime Minister David Cameron announced additional funding and jobs.
ACK Productions provided staging / PA system and press feed.
Working for Excite Display we installed over 80m of Litec truss and 50m of Prolyte truss into the Atrium of the Titanic Building for the Investment Conference organised by Invest NI.
Due to a lack of heavy mains supply all lighting was LED based including twelve of our new 100w Warm White / Cold White LED Parcans; 12 x RGBAW, 12 x RGBW Battens and 25w & 35w LED floodlights.
