31 Days Of Plots

31 Days Of Plots: NBC At PyeongChang 2018 Olympics

To celebrate the achievements of 2018 and to welcome all the prospects of 2019, Live Design is conducting 31 Days Of Plots. Every day during the month of December 2018, we will highlight a different lighting design, from across theatre, concert tours, corporate events, and more. 

The Lighting Design Group has been lighting the NBC Studios at the Olympics since 1994, and the 2018 PyeongChang games were no exception. LDG transformed the NBC Studios at the International Broadcast Center from an empty room into the studio seen on TV in a matter of weeks. LDG ‘s team of designers, led by senior lighting designers Steven Brill, Daniel Kelley, and Niel Galen, was on site the duration of the games to ensure that the design was executed properly for every evening broadcast.
