Last aired in 2012, Copycats sees Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes host with two family teams, each of six contestants, battling against each other in a series of games. Each episode consists of a number of rounds, three of which are based on Chinese whispers as well as a variety of physical challenges.
Filmed at BBC Scotland the show has been given a facelift with new opening titles, a new logo and a new set complete with a new exciting lighting rig. It features a mix of Mac Auras, Nexus 4x4 Panels and Robin LED 600 Wash units to create a fun and vibrant atmosphere.
Ever popular, the award-winning Chauvet Nexus 4x4 Panel is both a striking eye-candy and a tour-ready wash light, able to deliver pixel mapping display as well as a robust light output aided by 16 27-watt RGB COB LEDs. The combination of COB emitters and a clever reflector design yields a striking, diffused light richly drenched in saturated hues. Controllable by Art-Net, Klings-Net and DMX protocols, the Nexus 4x4 features interlocking hardware which allows for large arrays to be built. Whether in use for front viewings or as a backdrop, Nexus 4x4 promises a hard-to-match visual impact.
Speaking with Roger, he was very pleased to be able to use the Nexus 4x4 units again, commenting:
“I’ve used the Nexus 4x4 panels many times, I love them, they’re stylish, versatile, good value for money and they fill in gaps perfectly. I’m not using haze on this show so the Nexus 4x4’s are great for a change where previously a beam through smoke might have been. My favourite moving light – the Aura did the rest of the hard work, sometimes used to light people, sometimes for strong colour, and some for eye candy towards camera.”
