Our client is a multinational company and the worlds largest supplier of weighing instruments. They came to Primetime Entertainment wanting to treat their VIP delegates to a memorable display of Hollywood vs Territory Rig.
The client needed a live entertainment solution that would,
Impress their VIP delegates list
Have the highest level of corporate presentation
The client wanted to build up tension through-out a key period of the night which would ultimately build to a grand finale. This would also signal the start of the end-of-the-night where the guests can unwind, let their hair down and show off a few dance moves.
Primetime Entertainment provided and coordinated:
- The Kicks – 4pce Corporate Cover Band
- eMDee – Territory Featured Act
- Pyrotechnics Display by Howard & Sons
- Audio & Visual Production by TIS Music & Events
- Curtain Reveal
- Fire dancers
They had already commission external suppliers to provide the room set theming for the event and they were operating their own curtain-reveal system. The date of the event was during a tricky period where there was a high chance of rain. This meant that logistics had to be coordinated across 3rd party suppliers and weather contingencies had to be made.
Starting with the end in mind, Primetime Entertainment immediately moved to reserve the services of one of Darwin’s current superstars of the corporate cover band circuit – The Kicks. This would provide the premium live music experience that would ultimately close out the event as the guests dance the night away.
To create the impact of the grand finale, we commissioned one of the Territory’s most iconic performers eMDee. This high-energy 15 minute show would co-incide with a 3 minute Howard & Sons pyrotechnics display which we had firing from a separate launch site 100m away. To build tension, a curtain-reveal system was built around eMDee’s stage.
We directed the reveal providing a short through-line to guide the client (they were operating the curtain reveal).
We scripted a short through-line for the client to help them visualize how things would play out…
Following a short announcement from the MC, eMDee would tease the guests with the introduction of their famous didgeridoo softly in the background still hidden behind the curtain. The guests curiously are unaware of the source of the didge sound as it crescendo’s into the foreground of the moment. At cue, the curtain’s drop and eMDee begin the next phase of their performance.
Closing Out The Event
eMDee’s performance is tailored at 15 minutes long to keep the guests engaged. The grand finale of this key period comes to a climax when; in the last 3 minutes, the pyrotechnics begin. The eMDee performance has been loosely choreographed enabling more tension to build in the closing 3 minutes. The dazzling display from pyro masters Howard & Sons leaves the guests in awe as they realise what show they’ve been treated to.
Immediately following the Pyro display The Kicks front-woman and vocal powerhouse Natalie Pellegrino engages with the audience to welcome them to the start of the event’s closing-party. Formalities over, it’s time to dance, relax & enjoy.
Job well done…
