Host Analytics, the leader in cloud-based financial applications, held their annual Host Analytics World conference at the SFO Marriott in Burlingame, and JMP partnered with Seamless Show Productions to design and produce the scenic environment for this year's event. The set for the general sessions consisted of a 35' wide truss arch, rigged with a combo of our translucent 2x2 tile set and custom printed tiles with the conference's logo and theme, The Future of Finance. The stage was flanked by our glo wall columns and two 9'x16' screens with hard surrounds, and finished with an upstage, up-lit cyclorama. The look and feel continued into the ballroom foyer where we installed window graphics, branded the registration area, and wrapped the escalator with vinyl graphics, resulting in a consistent brand image throughout the hotel.
When Ebay needed a high impact stage graphic for their Women's Initiative Network Leadership Conference, Doug Murray at Cue One Go Production Services contacted John Murray Productions, Inc. to help design and build a 10' wide three dimensional logo. The second annual event brings together the top women leaders from eBay Inc. and was held this year at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose. The set included a custom built dimensional logo which we created in our shop using our CNC router, large format printer, and foam carving tools. The face of the letters, routed out of MDF was used as a template for carving the body of the letters out of 5" thick eps foam. The MDF was then mounted to the face, and the entire thing received a thin coating before painting. The idea bubble was printed and mounted to the face of the MDF, and a similar process was repeated to carve the foam. The logo was mounted on a matte piece of clear plexiglass and rigged with monofilament, which aided in the illusion of the floating graphic. A very accurate gobo was then created, allowing a tight projection of light on the face of the letters, creating a glowing drop shadow on the face of the pewter drapery used as the backdrop.
