We were excited to return to Sacred Hearts Schools in Atherton for yet another fundraising event. Last year we helped to throw a 60's Hippie party (see older posts), this year's theme was "a day at the beach". The dinner and live auction was to be the "evening at the beach", so we decided it would be fun to create a sunset behind the stage using only lighting fixtures and lots of imagination. We call it "painting with light", it is elaborate and time consuming but it is definitely unique and artistic and these were exactly the words we heard over and over again that night.
For this highly anticipated social Gala event we teamed up with our dear old friends from Ideas The Special Events Company. We have been sharing goals and visions with these folks for almost 20 years now and for the last six years also the warehouse address. Looking back I realize that it took me longer to design and fine tune the elaborate fly grid than to actually put it together and rig it from the tent structure. But ultimately it was time well spent, because we got rave reviews on the job and a very happy client. Can you believe this is a tent set over a parking lot and it was gone the next day?
