The Gearhouse Group has just completed the 2015 Bidvest Awards Gala Dinner. This is an annual event which the Group have been involved with for 8 years already and each iteration brings a new opportunity for the Gearhouse team to stretch their imaginations and creative technical expertise.
The spectacular virtual LED set for this year’s production of Bidvest on Broadway was no exception, and again took the event to new heights of technological and theatrical innovation.
Gearhouse luminary Tim Dunn is renowned for pushing the envelope on his shows in terms of aesthetics, imagination and technical ambition and this event was another example of taking this corporate event to the next level.
Graphics, video and full 3D on an amazing stage set comprised of 1001 LED panels meant that Tim and the lighting and content teams could go to town – in this case, New York – providing all the backdrops, scenery and virtual environments necessary on a set which never physically moves, but which ultimately brought the Show and Creative Director’s vision to life in a very innovative way.
