Miami's E11even Nightclub

E-mail Print PDF

E11even serves up a theatrical experience with its hybrid gentleman’s club/nightclub/dayclub design. Photo by Chibi Moku, Courtesy of Yami Alvarado, Carma PR Here’s a little math quiz. What do you get when you add 600 square feet of video wall units, one major “party pit” boasting nearly 60 moving heads and 360 LED video bars, and $40 million in construction and soft costs? The surprising answer is E11even — a 24-hour cabaret/nightclub in Miami, Florida, that made its debut earlier this year.

Robe MiniMeHave you ever been so excited about a lighting fixture that you cannot stop playing with it? I’ll be honest here, that is almost always the case when a new light hits my doorstep.  It is kind of like Christmas every time.  Though, this time, I had to travel across the Atlantic with this particular light. I picked it directly from the factory, hot off the production line.

On site at Levi’s Stadium with Sony’s F55 4K camera. The new home for the 49ers opened July 17.Back when the Raiders had a team that knew how to find the end zone, I used to run slo-mo (instant replay) as part of an eclectic and highly skilled television crew in the Bay Area. We did broadcasts for the Raiders, the Giants and the A’s, Cal and Stanford basketball, and other various live events ranging from the Miss California pageant to the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.

The Art of the Change

E-mail Print PDF

One of the greatest advancements in automated lighting programming over the last 10 years has been the ability to easily change fixture types from one to the other. As the market of available fixtures has increased, so too has the need to easily clone or change fixture libraries within a programmed show file. In the past this was accomplished through complicated copying routines and macros. However, even with the new tools built into consoles, it is important that programmers understand how to use these tools and how to prepare their show file for changes.
