LED Creative Delivers For 2017 Best FIFA Football Awards

News Image
LED Creative has recently supported the Infinity Creative Events production crew with a number of products at the 2017 Best FIFA Football Awards.

Filmed live in front of an audience at the London Palladium and hosted by actor Idris Elba, the event honours top performers from the world of football, from players, coaches and fans.

Using clean, modern lines, a set by Scenic Designer Dominic Tolfts added a sense of perspective and depth. The design created a tunnel-like effect that drew viewers inwards, beyond the iconic theatre's proscenium arch.

The sci-fi stylish installation included almost 400m of LED Creative Sigma flex controlled using the company's proprietary BYTE Controllers. The designer's utilisation of LC Sigma, which included framing the entire width of the stepped stage front, allowed the team full creative control of colour, intensity and movement over a host of key elements throughout the ceremony.

The flexibility of the LED installation also helped Lighting Designer Nigel Catmur and Gaffer Mark Gardiner to restyle the set in an instant, to create the full on rock and roll experience that accompanied the show's high octane 'half-time entertainment', provided by Kasabian.

In addition to the main auditorium set-up, the 'green carpet' arrival/interview areas featured a selection of 'easy install' LC Alpha Wand rental kits, plus BIT Controllers which the LD and Gaffer Matt Chalk used to light up the audience.

Ges Smith, LED Creative Director, said: "It's been an honour to work with Dominic Tolfts, Nigel Catmur and the whole crew on such a high profile, great looking production. It's fantastic to see the creative ways in which Dominic has applied our products throughout the set to deliver an ultra modern feel in such a classic, ornate interior."
