The Dove Awards is the Christian and Gospel Music industry’s night of celebration and recognition. Our client wanted the televised show produced as if it was a live production in order to reduce the show from over six live hours in previous years – to just over 90 minutes.
We were honored to provide both the set and lighting designs, as well as the technical production for the televised awards show. We also provided full production for the pre-awards show.
We used three levels of LED resolution for the overall building blocks of this set. By using 40mm LED, 20mm LED, and 10mm LED products to achieve some dramatic looks we also created varying textures for the set. There was some set construction from our scenic shop - confined to the background for the presenters.
In spite of the limited opportunities for scenic changes, we were able to execute over a dozen looks for the show. We balanced the LED technology with soft surrounds on the band risers and the use of an always-elegant Austrian Drape.
Even now, the client is surprised how many scenic looks were achieved by flying design elements in and out of the set. We also provided all the lighting equipment and design. Axxis was responsible for the motion graphics package for the live show as well as a flown V-Dosc line array to compliment the full Axxis audio team on site.
