Luke Halls wins KOI Award for Don Giovanni

Luke Halls wins KOI Award for Don Giovanni

Video director Luke Halls was awarded a Knight of Illumination Award for his work on the Royal Opera House’s production of Don Giovanni during the 7th Knight of Illumination Awards ceremony, held past Sunday at the Troxy in London.

Nominated for Video Graphics Display in the Television category, Luke Halls won the coveted award for the Kasper Holten-directed production of Don Giovanni, featuring set designs by Es Devlin. Halls’ video designs were hailed for their high quality and powerful, creative story telling, which convinced the judging panel to choose him over the other two category contenders.

The event, organised by STLD, ALD, Ambersphere and Clay Paky, saw a congregation of industry’s finest in video and lighting, with disguise taking part as sponsors for the first time.

Says Chris Bird, Sales & Marketing Director at disguise (formerly d3 Technologies): “It was a fantastic evening with a fantastic group of people – as sponsors we were able to host a mix of nominees, former KOI winners, press, and lighting and video designers at our tables which resulted in great conversation. The moment Luke won the award had us all out of our seats. Hats off to him – and to the organisers who did a marvellous job, we look forward to being involved again next year.”

As an experienced user, Halls used the full disguise workflow for show simulation, sequencing and control using designer, 1x 4U v2.5 and only one projector.
