You're Back in the Room

2014

 

You’re Back in the Room, hosted by Phillip Schofield and broadcast on ITV is a gameshow with a difference – all of the contestants have been placed in a waking trance by hypnotist Keith Barry.

ER Productions used RGB Beamburst lasers to achieve the desired look for the show and the individual competitive rounds. The show’s End Game for example is played in a boxing ring, which was formed out of 16 laser beams that were controlled independently by the show’s Lighting Director.

As well as creating an amazing effect, ER productions devised a cutting edge safety solution to keep the entranced contestants safe at all times.  The crew placed multiple ER E-Stops around the ring to ensure that if any contestants strayed too close to the beams, the effect could be stopped instantly.
