Bandit Lites And C3 Presents Bring The Lights To The NFL Draft Experience

Bandit Lites And C3 Presents Bring The Lights To The NFL Draft Experience posted: 24/05/2018

All 50 states and 32 NFL teams turned out in Texas, where more than 215,000 fans registered for the free lottery to have the chance to attend the 83rd iteration of the NFL Draft, the highest number for any draft event in its history. Bandit Lites partnered with C3 Presents and supplied an extensive lighting package for the NFL Draft Experience, held at the outdoor plazas of AT&T Stadium. The space featured interactive exhibits, games, the NFL Museum, a Pro Football Hall of Fame exhibit, virtual reality, autograph sessions and a stage for local talent, NFL team cheerleaders, mascots and drumlines.

With production talks beginning in February, Shawn Lear worked with C3 Presents Senior Production Manager Brandon Sossamon to map out a plan of attack for the vast outdoor landscape, structures and activations.

Building on our past NFL Draft experiences and applying fresh ideas for this year, Bandit sent a crew of nine to install and operate the three semi-trailers of equipment for the week long event, said Bandit Client Representative Shawn Lear. The crucial aspect for Bandit's part of the NFL Draft program is controlling multiple areas with team colors, as Bandit provided lighting systems that illuminated the corresponding team colors during draft picks at each Entry Portal Arch at the main entrances, The NFL Museum and the East Plaza. The team colors are a great visual enhance for the patrons watching on the outdoor screens.

Bandit Lites outfitted a dozen outdoor areas with more than 550 fixtures, including the Lombardi Trophy, The Tavern, the 40 Yard Dash, the Draft Museum, the East Plaza, the Entry Portal, the Goal Post, the Music Stage, the Scott Hanson Stage, the Team Helmets display and the VT Installation tent, which featured over one hundred Clay Paky Sharpys and 42 Martin Atomic 3000 Strobes.

The VT tent was a fancy, techy attraction that needed precise focus points and a tech to be on alert at all times, noted Bandit Lites Crew Chief Ty Veneziano. It was definitely a good tent to showcase Bandit's attention to detail.

Another major component of the weekend was the NFL Draft Museum where Bandit supplied GLP X4S and Bandit's exclusive GRNLite Pars while the East Plaza Site featured nearly 200 fixtures itself, including VL 6000 Beams, VL 3500 Washes, Elation Paladins, Elation SixPar 100 IP65, Chauvet Illuminarc Panels, GRNLite Par 64s and two grand MA 2 lite consoles for control along with a grand MA 2 Ultralite.

The North and South Portals were the big flashy welcoming committee of the party, noted Veneziano. The look made it feel like an exclusive invitation, but everyones invited.

The Main Entry portal was outfitted for rain or shine with VL 3500 Washes with SelbyGuard Rain Roof XLs, Clay Paky Spheriscans and GRNLite Par 64s with two Full Boar consoles, giving branded looks both to the thousands in attendance and the millions watching at home.

The NFL and C3 staff were very impressed with how well the outdoor features read in team colors, said Sossamon. The instrument selection was spot on and delivered the end result everyone was expecting. The iconic Draft shield logo was a big hit on the networks and wouldn't have read as well as it did without the help of Bandit and their professional staff.

Bandits Crew of Lighting Directors and Technicians managed to have everything set-up, on-line and programmed for final walk through with the client on Day 3, shared Lear. This achievement came about because of the direction of Bandit's Project Manager Jimmy Hatten, as the crew arrived with exceptionally prepare systems staged on specific trailers to achieve max load-in efficiency. Bandit is very proud of our team, Terese Fensler (Lead LD), Chaz Martin (LD), Alex Gagnon (LD) Chris Noll (LD) Tyler Veneziano (Crew Chief), Nikki Dotson (Tech), Scott Sepe (Tech), Taylor Sherman (Tech) and Brenna Rae (Tech).

Working with the Bandit team was extremely smooth and professional once again, said Sossamon. Executing the scope of work they were handed was not an easy task and of course, we had to throw some changeups at them. The guys and gals on the ground came through with flying colors by rolling with the punches and keeping a smile on their face.

With the NFL Draft a soaring success, Lear shared how Bandit Lites is immensely proud to support the event with C3 Presents, saying, I want to thank Brandon Sossamon and his team of professionals, Alison Ray, Shawn Worlow, PJ Harrington and for their leadership making this year's NFL Draft a very smooth operations from start to finish.
