Swiss Air Heidi Look-a-Like

Swiss Air held a publicity event at the San Francisco Embarcadero's Justin Herman Plaza, and John Murray Productions worked in partnership with Winslow Events to provide the scenic needs, utilizing our new large format printer. The event consisted of a Swiss Heidi Look-a-Like contest, and surely only San Francisco's best were on hand. The stage consisted of three 4'x10' flats that were covered with a seamless print featuring Swiss Air's own airliner flying high above the Matterhorn. This focal point was flanked by stretched spandex, with a panel for the judges in front. For the runway, we custom built red fascia sides for another 4'x10' flat that fit seamlessly onto the stairs at the plaza. Perhaps the highlight of the production was an 8'x8' panel covered with a gorgeous image of cows in the Swiss alps which was printed and seamed in our print shop. The event was a hit with a good time to be had by all, especially the winners of the contest who won free Swiss Air flights. Photos courtesy of Swiss Air & Winslow Events.

California Nurses Association

John Murray Productions, Inc. was hired as the design/fabrication team for the CNA House of Delegates at the San Francisco Marriott.  The challenges were threefold.  To design a stage set for the plenary room that was dynamic and allowed for a variety of uses (general sessions, awards dinner, delegates meeting); to design and install a multi-functional environment in the ballroom foyer; and to produce and creatively display all event graphics and signage. In the foyer, we designed, fabricated, and installed four unique environments to meet the many needs of the California Nurses Association.  The first area consisted of four kiosks where attendees could send 'health issue specific' postcards directly to their elected representatives.  The second area was designed to assist attendees in understand the technology associated with various hospitals.  The third area provided access to counsellors on the many benefits CNA provides.  The fourth area was a 400 sq ft retail area for the selling of CNA branded merchandise.

The ballroom set design consisted of a 14' x 45' wide RP screen, two 16' x 16' flat walls (located stage left and right) for oversize event graphics, and four 16' x 16' projection surfaces.  In the ceiling we designed and rigged two, 80' x 50' chandeliers, each consisting of over 250 plexiglass pieces, and lit with over 200 LED Color Blasts.  As the focus of the meeting in the ballroom changed from general session plenary, to awards and gala dinner, to delegate session, the four projection surfaces were utilized for slogans, video, and still photographic content.  Additionally, the lighting of the chandeliers and the room overall allowed for completely different environments without have to complete a room 'change over', saving time and money.
