AV graphics: The Project                                                Aerial Rigging: Action Safety

The show was built in multiple layers and with multiple media.

The screen images were multiplied onto 10 different, back-to-back screens across the length of a large arena –rigged through the audience and between 5 stages spread across the length of the room.

The show was performed with live performers and dancers (both areal and ground based) and with multiple perspectives on performances shot on live camera intercut with graphic animation.

The “story of the event” unfolded in, around, over, and in front of the audience...

Produced by: Ice Solution &Spiral Productions.
AV graphics: Ritesh Markan
Starring: Gina Schmukler, Tim Maloi, Cito and Angela Killian. Tsogt and Aerial performers.

The show was uniquely created for The Ford Academy Awards event.  The overall concept for the show, and indeed inspiration for the company in the near future, hung on the metaphor of “The Tree of Life”. IE: We are interconnected; if our roots are strong we can nurture and grow a proud, powerful tree for all to enjoy fruit and shade into a powerful and proud future together. The show was staged under a massive lighting truss structure designed as a very large “Tree of Life” –AV screens hung all over the tree from limbs reaching out off the stage over the audience.

12 vertical format screens set up around the audience... The audience was surrounded by large vertical mirrors between each screen. IE: The story of the event was “reflected” around the room.

The multiple stages extended deep into the audience echoing the long table layout.


Working in 360º

To find a way for an audience to not only 'look at something'...

...but to experience it.
