“Sit down lil’ camper, lemme tell you a story.”
One day Jon Chavez, our now President, called Sean, our CEO, to rope him into coming over to Nashville to “wrangle video, maybe some lighting?”
This was a partnership of professional platitudes that will be remembered forever. Two professional video gunslingers, back to back laying down the law, in a situation that would give even Chuck Norris sweaty palms.
We worked across three different stages, each with separate scenic elements — lighting and video for all three was controlled from one console. One stage had projection mapping, another had a 3,000 pixel LED wall, and the third was accessible via radio far away from the console. A typical day in the world.
Amazing Industries wrangled video assets, programmed lighting and video for all three stages. Jon, who was a client at the time, was having so much fun even cut up the audio tracks and married them to timecode for us because he is such a swell guy.
We got to record several sections of this over and over for the full series of games that year. All in, a great time had by everybody. The director, Keith J. Leman, was an Amazing artist; Sean may have been called a diva by a Producer at some point as he was rolled from one stage to another giving the Queen’s Wave. Wings and Taco Bell were consumed by all, and we really had a great time rolling with the punches on this one. The results were simply riveting, and enjoyed by hundreds of millions of people worldwide.
Oh, and Jon quit being a client and joined Team Amazing. We think he likes it here.
