Kenderdine Electrical have been involved in a major lighting upgrade of the Hobbiton Film Set Tour to enhance the experience of the visitors and allow the facility to operate into the night.
The first stage was to supply lighting control into the Green Dragon pub, providing atmospheric lighting to enhance the experience in the pub.
Stage two extends to the rest of the tour, Hobbit holes, pathways, marquees and the party field.
An extensive data network radiates from the Green Dragon, via wireless DMX as far as Bagend, Bagshot Road and Gandalf's Cutting. This network is then used to control carefully place lights and smoke machines to create the atmosphere of the Hobbit village and individual Hobbit holes. The Party Tree can be glitzed up for special events and the entire network is designed for expansion in the future.
Kenderdine Electrical have been working alongside the film's lighting electrician to create the effects required and to design and commission the entire data network.
