NAS 2015 Opening Ceremony

June 24, 2015 in Uncategorized

This years NAS opening ceremony started off the tournament with a bang. Featuring extreme sports stars such as the Yasutoko Brothers and Aaron ‘Wheelz’ Fotheringham from Nitro Circus. Along with a whole host of other sports stars and entertainers performing dances, trampoline acts, BMX stunts and more.

JR Scenic was asked to supply ramps for the performers to use in the show, including a 3.6M drop in ramp, quarter pipe, landing ramp and a 3M half pipe shown in the images below. After the opening ceremony the court had to be cleared completely within 8 Minutes for the first volley ball tournament to begin. Because of this each ramp was built with hidden wheels so it could be quickly disassembled and rolled out of the arena.

We were approached by Avant Garde to build a gala dinner stage for DP World at The Atlantis Hotel. The stage was a white tiled gloss floor. The walls included a 8×5 Meter rear projection screen and 12 graphic frames to look like shipping containers. These graphics had to have a platform behind them for dancers. During the show the panels would be back lit revealing the dancers silhouettes on the material. We also made 3 large cable wheels to be placed either side of the stage.

Dubai Expo 2020

May 13, 2015 in Uncategorized

As part of the build up to Dubai Expo 2020 the amount of promotion and supporting events will increase more and more as we get closer to the big event. Jack Morton approached us to start the ball rolling with a series of sculptures to be placed around the UAE. Each sculpture was decorated by a different artist whos concept was directly inspired by a key aspect of Expo 2020. The sculptures also had an interactive touch screen monitor that played informational videos which helped inform the viewer what the Expo is all about, alittle about the artist who designed the artwork and its significance to the Expo as a whole.

The sculptures were made up of a steel frame, a double sided wooden center panel both containing graphics. A high gloss white floor made up of the Expo Logo with down-lit LED trim and large inset spot lights lighting the sculpture.

The second phase was to combine the three 6M sculptures with the other eighteen 3M ones to create three giant Expo Logos. These were placed in key places around Dubai and Abu Dhabi including JBR, Dubai Mall, Masdar City, Global Village and the Expo 2020 site in Jebel Ali.

Finally we supplied two stands which housed interactive touch screen monitors, and a large video wall. The purpose of the stands was to let the public submit designs for a new Dubai Expo 2020 Logo. The winner would receive a cash prize and their logo would create a new brand for the Expo. We supplied white walls on a circular floor and curved monitor stands to house all the interactive equipment. Everything was in keeping with the previous Expo promotion sculptures by having a high gloss white finish. The images below show the outdoor stand that was housed by a wooden dome structure inorder to shield the equipment and the public from the sun and also trap cool air supplied by air conditioning units inside the stand.
