2018 Winner of the the Aryton Award for

Contribution to Television Lighting

Steve Wells RML (presented by Michael Althaus & Stuart Gain)

This unique award was introduced for the first time in 2017 to recognise the work of those who support the Lighting Designers in their work. Ross Williams, a well-respected Lighting Programmer, was the first recipient and carrying on from this it was felt this year there was someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in the service sector.

Steve Wells (CEO of RML) was that person. From the early days of the Goldern Scans, Steve has been there making sure LD’s hire wish lists have been fulfilled. Nothing is too much trouble and he has instilled this ethos in the staff. For over twenty five years he has provided moving lights to most of the UK’s big television shows, always with a smile and with efficiency.

The award to Steve has been well received by those working in TV Lighting as well as manufacturers who know Steve well as he is always on the lookout for the latest bit of kit which he knows his clients will want.
