Join us for a highly technical discussion about the lighting, video, and projection systems of the most harrowing 12-minute production of the year, the Super Bowl Halftime Show, this year featuring Justin Timberlake. Chris Conti of PRG and Chris Peterson of VER will discuss the systems that brought the production, projection, and lighting designs to life, including production design by Bruce Rodgers of Tribe, Inc, working with Timberlake's designer Nick Whitehouse and Josh Zangen with Fireplay, and lighting design by Bob Barnhart.
All Access Staging and Productions built the set and staging, PRG supplied the lighting, VER provided video, ATK Audiotek did the sound, and Strictly FX designed and supplied lasers and pyro.
