IPS equipment has been on the carpet for the biggest films of the summer, including Barbie, Oppenheimer, Mission Impossible and Indiana Jones
Working for Limited Edition Event Design, we have been privileged to be on the red/pink/black carpets for many of the biggest film premieres of recent years. These included Barbie, Oppenheimer, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One and The and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny to give their correct titles. The current writers’ strike has seen the whole industry on hold, and whilst we all wait for what will hopefully be a positive outcome it is an ideal time to look back at some of the biggest premieres of the summer.
IPS has a long-established working relationship with Limited Edition Event Design, who are the go-to technical production designers for all the top Film Premieres. We are proud to supply and install the supporting structures for many of their productions, as well as suppling lighting and rigging equipment on a dry hire basis for their technical team to install and operate. For the Barbie and Indiana Jones Premieres, we also supplied and installed the LED Screen systems – and we provided miles of control and power cabling and associated cable ramp and power distribution systems from our extensive equipment hire inventory.
Lighting equipment supplied for the premieres drew heavily from the many IP-Rated items in our hire inventory, which are a perfect choice for outdoor events. These included both static and moving fixtures from a range of different manufacturers. Some hero fixtures from each premiere included the Chauvet Colorado Q40 wash panel on Indiana Jones to emphasise details on the intricate set design. Dramatic looks with fast paced movement were required for the Mission: Impossible design, which were aided by SGM BeaST and Chauvet StrikeM strobes. Linear eyecandy underlined the huge Oppenheimer screen, provided by a series of GLP Impression X5 IP Bar fixtures, and 150 Chauvet ColorDash H12XIP LED Pars brought the pink for Barbie, supported by OTOS B5 Beams. All the premieres also used a range of Prolights StudioCOB LED Pars and Chauvet onAir IP Panels for white lighting, with key feature lighting from Chauvet Maverick Storm 4 Profiles – supported with a range of battery powered fixtures from Astera and Prolights.
Custom configuration LED Screen is something that we are well placed to support (pun intended!) as we can integrate our modular outdoor LED Screen panels into the structural design process – as we did with the Barbie and Indiana Jones premieres. We supplied specially configured structures to support the columns of screens in custom aspect ratios to work with the bespoke screen content created for the premieres. The LED Screen product used for these premieres was the Chauvet F4IP Screen, which is an IP rated 4.8mm pixel pitch product with a high brightness output – making it ideal for outdoor use, even in the daytime.
We supplied a range of Staging & Structures to provide the backdrop, platform and presentation stage for elements of the Limited Edition design for each of the premieres. All structures had bespoke structural calculations to determine the amount of ballast needed to support the structure with associated cladding, branding and technical equipment fitted, and all were installed and removed by the IPS team.
All the lighting equipment used on these events is available for hire from IPS. Check out the latest new arrivals to our inventory here, and see all the current equipment prices here – or get in touch with our team for a quotation.
