EL BEIT

Talpa Middle East | Technical Consultancy

Talpa Middle East got me on a very last minute flight to Dubai. They have a 2400 square meter studio to be completely filled by their new El Beit set. It ook a mere two days to figure out and mark-up all the exact positions for both setbuild and lighting plan to get them going on time.

ARAB IDOL II

Pivot | Set Supervision / Technical Design

I'm at MBC studios, Beirut, Lebanon. Second tour for Arab Idol. It usually takes just a few days of preparing and several weeks of on-site supervision before a deliverable set can be produced. This is largely due to availability of materials, subsequent on-site design changes and the mere fact that these sets are being custom made for the most part. At times this will make set construction a challenge to say the least, but at the same time most of the fun happens when things go haywire..

HOUROUF 2014

Pivot | Set Supervision / Technical Design

For the past few years Pivot has been integrating virtual reality into MBC's Hourouf gameshows. This requires a considerable amount of accuracy during preparation and set construction to make sure both real and virtual space will match perfectly on camera.

YOUR FACE SOUNDS FAMILIAR

Pivot | Set Supervision / Technical Design

Back at MBC studios, Beirut, Lebanon, first tour for Your Face Sounds Familiar. This time we'll position the whole set at a 45° angle in the studio, it's a bit of a challenge working out all set markers. But positioning this way means recycling the Voice's main audience positons which will save a considerable amount of time, and time we need because of the rather complex roof structure on this one. Many thanks to a great RBA crew, they did a great job preparing major set parts prefab in their facory!

NORWEGIAN PRODUCT BROCHURE

mojobarriers | design / photography

Just finished the Norwegian version of mojobarriers product brochure.

Back in 2011 mojobarriers set out to catalog their ever growing range of barrier products. Starting out as a steel and mostly straight system over twenty years ago, the most popular of the stage barrier systems today has evolved into a full fledged light weight aluminum crowd control solution. As the growing number of specials made the system flexible and ready to seek out new markets, an obvious need for effective marketing tools arose. From as early as 1999 cracklewax has helped develop mojobarriers 2- and 3-D CAD library, product brochures and photography.
