LFPS Teams Up With Limited Edition Event Design

Event production specialists Light Fantastic Production Services (LFPS) partnered with Limited Edition Event Design to provide the main stage plus a complete after party installation for the world premiere of the Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody at the SSE Wembley Arena.

As the centrepiece to the event LFPS created a bespoke circular stage finished in gold mirror to complement the premiere’s signature purple carpet. The stage was a focal point for the evening, hosting live interviews with the movie’s cast and crew along with members of Queen.

Directly following the screening, for the star studded aftershow, LFPS transformed Wembley Stadium’s Three Lions Bar into a stylish rock and roll themed party space for a thousand guests.

To help build the look, the team used Portman’s newly released P2 Hexaline fixtures, placed within the lobby, their choreographed chases and tungsten warmth creating a proper rockshow atmosphere. A curved gallery, lined with individually lit costumes and large scale production stills from the movie was formed at the entrance. Here, LFPS installed a mixture of ROBE LEDBeam 150 and ProLights Studiocob fixtures that greeted arriving guests with dynamic movement and colour.

In the main party area LFPS deployed 170 of their brand new Chauvet WELL Fit wireless LED uplighters, 110 of these being used to great effect to create grand sweeps of colour along the vast glass and steel wall that looks out over Wembley. Adding regal gold highlights to the mix, ROBE PATT 2013 fixtures were cleverly positioned throughout the area, their elegantly retro looks perfectly complementing the styling of the event.

Lighting was controlled using a Chamsys MQ100 console with various Wireless Solutions transceivers to minimise the cabling requirement and speed up installation.

Completing the installation, audio was fed from a Pioneer DJ rig to the venues in-house system to the main space and a number of ancillary areas using a selection of cabinets from the LFPS d&b audiotechnik inventory.

As a final addition to the authentic backstage feel, LFPS were able to further augment the rock show look by carefully arranging a number of their flight cases throughout the venue.

Commenting on the project, Light Fantastic Director Rob Myer said: "It's been incredibly exciting to have played a part in creating the Bohemian Rhapsody experience at such an iconic venue. The layout of the party space presented a handful of initial design challenges but the crew have done a wonderful job of transforming it to create a fabulous looking, rock and roll party!."
