Back in February I was out in Dublin at the RDS after being approached by the MD’s of Branchout Productions and Limelite Lighting Ltd, to be involved with an event they were working on for Jaguar LandRover.
The event was an awards ceremony / dinner and party. Branchout Productions designed a layout and treatments for turning one of the halls in the RDS into a classy dinner and event space.
Utillsing false walls LED screens and screen surfaces to separate areas such as the bar and main room, they made a comfortable and textured surrounding for the event.
The main awards stage was a small circular satellite stage in the middle of the dining area, with a series of cuircular trusses hung above. To which the lighting rig was intertwined with a ceiling of LED video wands run via Hippo Cast V4.
There was another stage at the far end of the room for the band to play on for the party section after.
Hippo was controlled via a Hog 4 by Matthew Lee. We worked together to make sure that the lighting moods and colours worked between both lighting and video. Lighting was controlled via a Compulite Vector Green.
Prior to the awards was a performance by one of Dublins leading Irish Dance companies.
‘WOW! Congratulations on a magnificent production in the RDS. I honestly don’t think i’ve seen such a great, high-spec, highly designed event in over a decade in this country! It was like walking into a little slice of heaven. And it was good for the soul.’
Susie Sheil MD & Creative Director (the entertainments agency)
There was a large team to make this event happen in the time scale, but everyone pulled together beautifully, and i am proud to have been asked to be a part of the team.
Branchout Productions supplied all the resources for Set, Lighting, Sound, cameras, vision. A great job.
