VENUE The Roundhouse
DATE December 2012
We built an enormous backstage space for rolling risers, and played and extensive game of tetris to make sure they could come on and off quickly enough. Liaising with the artists and their management on behalf of Capital, we realised soon that we also needed to extend the abilities of the (already extensive) PA in the venue and added a Vi6 to both front of house and monitors to allow for “swift recall” between the bands.
A full performance set from Lawson, Labrynth and Olly Murs meant over 180 channels of audio needed routing.
In addition to this, we had designed a seamless story-board of custom media to work across the LED and projection surfaces to really give the event a unique feel. Every artist or presenter had a full video introduction (X-Factor style!) that was played out of our dual-head catalyst.
Our partners on the project, Flare, did (as always) an excellent job with the lighting and the media whilst Imagine Believe stage management team kept a tight ship, only slipping out of schedule to a maximum of 1 minute all night! Which is good news, as we were also responsible for recording the whole thing on a full 1080p HD system from Grass Valley.
Not only that, but Capital Rocks raised a huge amount of money for their chosen charity (Help a Capital Child) from the evening with donations from guests and through the live and silent auctions that we facilitated.
