Austage Events successfully delivered all production services for the Mars – The Live Experience tour at all three locations of Melbourne Town Hall, The Hordern Pavilion and ANU Llewellyn Hall.
Presented by National Geographic Live and produced by Dean Francis of JJ Splice Films with event design and technical direction by Daniel Morgan of Austage Events Sydney.
Featuring Buzz Aldrin, NASA’s Jason Crusan, ESA’s Prof Mark McCaughrean, AstroKatie – Katie Mack, Richard de Crespigny and host Ray Martin
The show featured 4:1 aspect ratio 12m x 2.5m blended projection screen driven by Barco E2 Screen management system with custom content projected by Barco HDX projectors plus a Four HD camera shoot with multiple image magnification on screen at the same time.
The cinematic screen was supported by a new DVA T8 line array sound system that had more than enough power for the larger venues producing clear vocals and an overwhelming sound of a rocket lifting off.
Daniel also created a simple and effective lighting design for the shows and was kept busy operating each show on a Chamsys MQ80.
