The Million Pound Drop

Channel 4, 2013


Broadcast live on Channel 4 in the UK, The Million Pound Drop Live is a BAFTA-winning game show presented by Davina McCall.

The laser effects seen on the show have evolved dramatically during its 11 successful series – ER Productions initially used a few white Compact 4 lasers to create a security system style effect during the static game and for the question time clock.

After a successful debut series, the show’s lighting designer upped the number of lasers used in order to introduce three distinct laser looks to the format: A static look for the game play, laser movement during the presenter and contestant walk on and a burst of frenetic laser activity that kicks in when a contestant wins.
