Responding to a commission from the shows Lighting Designer, Durham Marenghi, XL Events Project Manager, Steve Greetham, worked for several weeks to specify and supply equipment and crew, both for the stunning projection mapping onto Buckingham Palace, and the onstage wraparound LED screens and IMAG cameras for the concert stage. This was cleverly built around the Queen Victoria Monument in front of the Palace.
XL Events also provided the monitoring which was utilized by D3 Technologies for the video mapping and playback of video on the Palace. The animation was commissioned by Sam Pattinson, creative director for the projections, using content from a number of different animators.
XL Events also provided approximately 600 tiles of Pixled FX-11 LED which formed the large wraparound screen on the main crown-shaped concert stage.
The onstage provision was managed by Crew Chief, Graham Vinall, with the screens providing an essential part of the show for the public, both in the crowd and at home.
Steve Greetham comments : "XL Events is very proud to have played a part in this historic event. Working in Her Majesty's front garden presents some very unique challenges, and our crew more than rose to the occasion. The extremely positive reaction to our work is fantastic!"
