SHINE! on the Harbor Gala — Challenges Met | AVFX Boston Audio Visual Staging

SHINE! on the Harbor Gala — Challenges Met

Through the power of live performance, the Celebrity Series of Boston enriches lives and inspires the community of Boston. It is a true cultural asset, bringing to the city world-class performing artists, both established and emerging; as well as a robust community engagement program sponsoring numerous public performance projects.

This year the audience gathered for SHINE! on the Harbor Gala at The Loft in the Innovation and Design Building, One Design Center Place, Boston. At this event alone Celebrity Series raised about $550,000 for its performance and community programs.

Audience view

TECH NOTES: The performance group for the evening, Body Music, needed 3 levels of audio amplification. They were tap & shuffle dancing; which required the floor to be mic’ed. They also did body percussion, and they were singing. Our audio team did an outstanding job of mixing the microphones. The overall speaker placement had to be perfect and the sound was crystal clear and totally precise.

Warping the images to project around the columns.

The room contained numerous support columns which presented a challenge for our three video projection screens. On each screen two 18K projectors were positioned at almost 90 degrees apart from each other to project around either side of the columns using Dataton WATCHOUT to make the image blend perfect. The audience was never aware of the challenges because it’s not about the technology, but rather about the message being delivered.

“As always, the AVFX team did a fantastic job, meeting challenges and reducing my stress.”
Melody Pao, Manager of Events and Stewardship at Celebrity Series of Boston

It was a privilege to support the Celebrity Series and work closely with both Rafanelli Events and Port Lighting.
