The best supporting acts
Olson Visual recently completed its largest display projects to date, following commissions from motion picture and film companies Focus Features and STX Films for the provision of two illuminated feature walls.
The wallswere designed to celebrate Focus Features’15 year anniversary and to help STX Films to provide an attractive backdrop for visitors to CinemaCon 2017.
For Focus Feature wall, Olsen used Tecna Display’s T3 modular framework system to create a stunning 170 foot long illuminated wall,featuring graphics thatdepicted highlights of the company’s most successful films. Due to the location of a fire exit, the display was built as three separate structures, all of which were eight feet high and respectively, 101, 57 and 13 feet long, with illumination provided by Wandlite LED tubes.
The graphics, one 101 foot long section of which comprised a single SEG panel, were printed onto a PVC free textile on UVI inkjet printers,edged with silicon and mounted onto the T3 framework using Tecna Display’s 45° Silverlite profile, which provides a neat finish.
The entire display took the crew of Olson Visual four hours to build and complete.
For the STX wall, Olson Visual also used a T3 modular frameworkto design a step and repeat illuminated wall 96 feet long , nearly seven feet high and 24’ inches deep. The complementary LED lighting system enabled the event organisers to remotely control the intensity of the illumination, by dimming the lights as and when required during interviews and trailer previews.
The 96 foot wall was broken into five separate segments, each of which were staggered to create the step and repeat display. Due to the stage space and the time available, the Olson team pre-built the five segments and wheeled them in for installation.
