At the annual State of the University event, Northeastern hosts their full academic community to review highlights of the past decade and look forward to the future embodied in the strategic plan, Northeastern 2025. AVFX Boston was honored to have been selected to supply production and staging for the event this year.
TECH TALK: Eleven presenters, including a ten year old girl representing the class of 2025, addressed the assembled audience over the course of the event. This style of the event rivaled a corporate event in its sophistication with two 20ft screens projected from double-stacked 18K Barco projectors and an Atomic scenic design lit from above and below overlooking five individual round stages from PBD Events.
A crew of 26 loaded in three truckloads of equipment overnight, including a 500 lb. lift which had to be carried to the second-floor gymnasium by hand. The 10-person show crew included audio, lighting, video staff and two live cameras for video production as well as live streaming the event online.
Special thanks to Northeastern University for this opportunity.
