VIRGIN TV BAFTA PARTY

SKYLON, LONDON

THE BRIEF

We worked with our client to deliver full technical production for Virgin Media’s 2018 BAFTA party. Virgin Media invited guests were treated to a glamourous pre-awards drinks reception at Skylon Restaurant on London’s Southbank. This was followed by a chic afterparty following the ceremony. 
We were asked to transform the exclusive space using different lighting moods throughout the evening alongside supplying a large LED screen and projection around the room. 

THE EXECUTION - NIGHT ONE

 To create the perfect party vibe, we installed multiple LED uplighters and an ambient lighting package, complete with 20m of red velvet drapes around the venue to add that all-important touch of glam.

LED fixtures were made bright and vibrant to compensate for the natural daylight flooding through the large windows. As the night drew in, we changed the lighting state to create a relaxed and glamorous vibe.

Virgin Media content was projected onto the restaurant windows using 2 high-brightness Panasonic 9K laser projectors, producing an inspiring array of colour, texture and moving images. An LED wall displayed a live feed, complete with audio, straight from the red carpet ensuring guests didn’t miss out on any of the action. After the ceremony, the setup was used to display vibrant content for the DJ set, working alongside a custom-made 10mm LED DJ console.
