What a 14′ screen looks like at the Hilton Garden Inn Saint Paul

We setup a 10.5′ x 14′ fastfold screen at the Hilton Garden Inn Saint Paul last night. Normally, I would say this is too large a screen for the room. They wanted impact. I think it achieves that. We also rented them a couple of Mackie 450 speakers for PA with a mixer, a wireless handheld microphone, 4200 lumen lcd projector, scaler switcher, follow spot and drape line.

Calhoun Beach Club lighting demo.

Earlier this week we had the opportunity to meet a lovely bride through Fete Perfection at the Calhoun Beach Club.  We were happy to give her a demonstration of our tried and true methods of decor lighting, as well as showing off some items new to our inventory.  Her vision was to have the Solarium room saturated with a light blue color, and we didn’t fail to impress.  To accomplish this we used a combination of DMX controlled LED lights and battery powered LED uplights as well.  The effect was spectacular; the bride commented on how it completely changed the atmosphere of the room.  This is a wedding we are really looking forward to lighting, as well as providing sound equipment for the ceremony.


Ultimate PJ Party

We did a great event at the Double Tree Saint Louis Park. The Ultimate PJ party was a lot of fun to do. We had a ton of up-lighting both static and dynamic. We had a gobo outside the entrance that really popped.  We did it with a standard metal gobo and and ETC Source 4 15-30 zoom and a pink gel. Inside we had the red room for where fortunes were told. The main room had a live band. We did the pipe and drape, fastfold screen with rear projection and short throw lens. We also lined the room room with dynamic up-lighting and also put a couple of moving head lights on box truss with internal light. We also setup the corrugated plastic backdrop behind the bed for the photo shoot.  We had a tech on-site to hand the Powerpoint and to change the lighting scenes.



Chiro Advance Show

For the Chiro Advance show we used our corrugated plastic backdrop with uplights. Pipe and drape linking to 8′ fastfold screens. The sound system was 4 speakers with a Countryman headset mic and wireless handheld mic. www.AVforYou.com
