BP welcomed 48, 000 visitors over 26 days into their ‘Fuelling the Future’ Showcase experience at the Olympic & Paralympic Games. The Showcase highlighted how BP is rising to the global energy challenge.
DJW created a Showcase that relied entirely on the AV integration. Presented by international Olympians and Paralympians, the 15-minute experience immersed 60 visitors in a giant, 360-degree rotating cyclorama of extraordinary panoramic images and effects.
The Cyclorama image is provided by 8 edge blended projectors and a single projector is used on the central dome. Lighting was provided by 15 LED zoom lights, enhanced by under-seat and under dome effects and special effects around the perimeter of the theatre. All this was cleverly incorporated into a 14 metre diameter theatre with a turntable for a floor.
Central overhead speakers were tightly focused on the audience to give a clear powerful sound, without reflections or sound spill out onto the Olympic Park. Directional sound came from speakers about the perimeter, giving effects and letting Olympians, Paralympians and BP Staff speak from around the cyclorama.
Special effect chills the visitors to give them a taste of both Alaska and working on the North Sea. DJW integrated this, the lighting and the turntable, as well as programming the lighting and integrating a pre-show to create a fully immersive experience.
DJW worked within the constraints of a temporary building and Olympic Park security that made getting equipment and staff onto site taxing, in order to deliver a high quality show with an absolutely firm deadline!
