We got the call from one of our favorite people on the planet, Stacey Esquith from Jordanah, to help her out with a unique arrivals kit for 24. ShowPro designer Chris Greulach put together this backlit-truss-versatube step and repeat wall that was a big hit. Stacey and Chris worked with a local graphics house to produce a material that was translucent. So all of the logos really popped on the red carpet. Add some truss and some versatubes, and you have a contemporary arrivals system!

Los Angeles based ShowPro is setting the scene for the upcoming 50th Annual GRAMMY Awards with over 1500 HD VersaTubes™ for lighting designer Bob Dickinson and production design partners Steve Bass and Brian Stonestreet. The VersaTubes are mounted on various parts of the set including stair cases, rolling walls, and a unique mechanical “close down” wall on the downstage edge of the stage. One special performance will feature an array of VersaTubes as chandeliers and uprights. To facilitate the application, ShowPro did a pre-install at Scenic Express, a Los Angeles based scenic shop with the support of VER.
“This is a stunningly beautiful use of one meter and half meter HD VersaTubes” says ShowPro president David Smith. “This is our second year working with Full Flood on this show, and we are so impressed with Bob’s application of these devices not only as effective motion graphics tools for the camera, but as stand-alone sculptures as well. They’re just beautiful when applied in this setting.”
The GRAMMY Awards will feature performances by Paul McCartney, U2, Radiohead, Jennifer Hudson, Justin Timberlake, Neil Diamond and 15 other artists. The annual special airs Sunday, February 8 at 8pm et/pt in HD on CBS live from The Staples Center.
The 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards are produced by John Cossette Productions in association with AEG Ehrlich Ventures for The Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich and John Cossette were executive producers.
