Invisible Children's Founders Party

We had the amazing privilege to work with Invisible Children for their founders party at the end of their four day youth rally. Our venue was the beautiful Royce Terrace on the UCLA campus. We set up a 12' wide 16:9 screen, a sound system for a jazz band and the presentation. We also ran 8 stringers across the entire terrace for a great look and nice soft lighting. LED uplights surrounded the entire terrace and LED lekos were used for a stage wash and to make their art pieces more visible. Simple and effective way to have a very nice, classy event.

Pro Pricer Users Conference 2013

This year Allied Event Productions had the privilege to work another consecutive year with the team at Executive Business Solutions for their Pro Pricer Users conference. The entire Henry Dana Ballroom at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott was utilized for a large general session. We used 4 16:9 screens and front projected by rigging High Definition projectors in the ceiling. During the week, we separated the rooms into 4 breakout rooms breaking it down to one screen per room. We chose a stage design that would accommodate the need to pull the walls and separate the rooms, while still making each room look good on its own.

Every Fifteen Minutes

For the past 4 years, Allied Productions has had the privilege to work with the California Highway Patrol for a worthy cause. This year we have been lucky enough to work with the National City police, and the La Mesa police departments. Selected high schools in San Diego do a very well organized event against drinking and driving. 4 students are selected from the junior or senior class to be a part of a mock car wreck. We start by filming establishing shots of the kids stories. On the day of the crash the junior and senior classes come out to see two wrecked cars and 4 of their peers inside them. A by the book scene then unfolds complete with police, paramedics, fire department and even 911 dispatch. Camera men travel with four actors in the ambulance to a real hospital with trauma surgeons, a real police station to book the driver, and a mortuary. We then film a complete court scene with the judge, bailiff, district attorney and public defender all donating their time. Allied then takes the footage and edits it all overnight to show at an assembly the next day. This has proven to be a very effective way to teach kids at an impressionable age the dangers of drinking and driving.

Capital Financial

Capital Financial brought us to the historical and very beautiful Hotel Del Coronado. A content packed 4 day event for their employees and associates took place in the presidential ballroom. A cyc was stretched across the entire back of the stage. Color changing LED lights were used, as well as moving lights to add patterns. Hung in the ceiling were 2 9'Tx16'W screens and 2 7K lumen projectors were ground supported on 10' truss to eliminate any possibilities of sight line and shadow issues.

Dr. James Dobson's 'Family Talk' Donors Retreat '13

Dr. James Dobson, co-founder of focus on the family, has recently started a new family help organization called Family Talk. This was the donor retreat to show the investors all of the exciting new steps Family Talk will be taking this year. We made the stage feel like a living room by rigging two windows and a door and adding homey furniture to the stage. On either side of the stage we used 2 65" flat screen monitors to show their content. A sound system was also included for live music and presentations.
