UEFA ⋅ Amsterdam, The Netherlands ⋅ July 2019
UEFA Workshop @ Amsterdam
Our project objective was to create a unique stage design with a wow-effect that has a big impact on the audience, as well as provide video, sound and lighting for cc. 200 representatives from sport TV companies from all over Europe.
Our inspiration was to create the feeling of attending a football stadium by using LED blades and LED-strip system to frame the center LED wall.
MCI France ⋅ Budapest, Hungary ⋅ September 2019
Will Smith Concert & Press Event
Will Smith returned to Budapest to promote his new movie Gemini Man. Along with the “official” appearances for the red carpet event and for the screening (where we also provided all the AV and installations) he also threw the biggest birthday party at Special Effects’ history.
We’ve provided all the staging, sound, lighting and video equipment for the concert along with some of the decor, intercom and communication systems, power, and additional items (eg. trailers, barricades, toilets, furniture, etc.). The event was a success at the end but we had to face a lot of challenges due to the short lead time (2.5 weeks only), the constantly changing rider, the constant new requests and additions and so on.
With an amazing teamwork we pulled it all together to provide quite an amazing evening for about 4,000 spectators and TV broadcast.
