Sailing back to Love Island


Aurora Lighting hire have once again been cast away to work with Lighting Designer Gurdip Mahal and Gaffer James Tinsley, adding some illumination to the latest season of Love Island for ITV2.

Liaising closely with the LD, Aurora Project Manager Joe Marter dealt with lighting lists and logistics to create and despatch a full location package to the island set - including an extensive selection of automated and fixed light sources along with location power and all relevant distribution and control equipment.

The project also required the team to create a variety of bespoke electronic installations and LED set pieces that were integrated throughout the islanders home environment.

Commenting on the project, Gurdip said “I’d just like to thank Aurora for their support on Love Island.  Being so far away from home it was great to have reliable equipment and the support. Hundreds of encapsulates, hundreds of miles of festoon and lots of hard work. Looking forward to next year working with Joe Marter again!”

Joe Marter added “there are obvious challenges when dealing with projects that need to ship internationally, however this one landed perfectly - James and his team have done a superb job during their time on the Island!”
