The Brit Awards
Ogle Hog were the video supplier for the 2017 Brit Awards. Ogle hog offered comprehensive technical support throughout the process and delivered a truly sensational show. This year acts included Little Mix, Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Emile Sandé and Coldplay featuring the Chain Smokers.
The Brits Are Coming 2017
Ogle Hog worked directly with Brits TV and supplied all of the LED, d3 media servers and engineering support for the brits are coming 2017. We supplied 138m2 of roe 3.9mm. This created our back screen which was 14m wide by 5m high and curved. in addition to this we built a forest of columns either side, comprising of 1m, 1.5m and 2m wide drops.
The set was designed by bruce french and as ever working with bruce comes with truly rewarding results.
The difficulty with this show was the tight load in schedule, we had a great team of led technicians who worked around the clock to get this loaded in quickly and efficiently. Lisa shenton, art director on this show, worked with us to see the smooth running of this process.
The show was broadcast live on ITV and featured artists such as Craig David, Christine the queens, Rag'n'bone man. It was the most watched brits launch show to date.
MTV EMA's 2016
The EMA’S were based in Rotterdam this year and this was the 5th year that Ogle Hog had been involved. The show is broadcast live and was estimated to have reached 785 million households worldwide.
As well as providing the entire video playback system, consisting of 5 x d3 media servers, an encore 2 and catalyst, we offered a pre-visualization service where we built, for the client a scale representation of what the set would be like with moving video. This enabled the content designers to get an idea of how the content would look and also the overall feel for the show. Alongside this we worked with faber av who supplied all the led fixtures. These were brand new roe strips using brompton processing.
Julio Himede designed the set for the EMA’s 2016 and in total we used 2500 roe strips which were attached to an enormous layered scaffold structure, which created an incredible piece of 3d video sculpture. We worked closely with gravity who were the main content providers and crafted some very complex 3d pixel maps to fulfill the intricate nature of the video structure.
Bublé at the BBC
This was a BBC show in which Michael Bublé performed some of his classic hits and spoke exclusively with Claudia Winkleman. We worked with designer Peter Bingemann to bring his 3D wall effect to life using projection. For this we provided 4 x barco 40k projectors and a catalyst media server. Because the surface was not flat we had a really hard job lining up and overlaying the 4 projectors, but with a collaborative effort from Rich Porter (media server op) and Mike Dorrie (projectionist) we got there. The event was broadcast on BBC1 and looked fantastic.
Kate Tempest hosted a night of poetry that was a live performance for BBC2 at the Rivoli ballroom in southeast London.
Designer Bruce French and tv director Liz Claire approached us to work on this project and we were more than happy to take it on.
With a really unique and intimate design we had to think outside the box for this one. Bruce wanted to create a sparse intimate scene that was reminiscent of a time without a lot of technology. He wanted to create windows into the 7 characters of Kate Tempests ‘let them eat chaos’ album.
So we came up with a solution that used samsung video wall monitors. These were mounted on a structure built by Scott Fleary productions ltd. The content came from some very talented artists headed up by Harris Elliot.
The content was beautiful and mirrored Kate Tempests words beautifully.
For playback we used a catalyst with a hog desk. The event was broadcast live on BBC2 and is the first in a series of new artist debuts.
Stereophonics UK Tour
We worked with the Stereophincs touring all over the country, doing one off shows and headlining festivals.
Working with Brent Clark who was the bands lighting and video designer we used winvision 9mm air from ver to create a light weight touring solution. This innovative design meant that we could use the screen creatively. We built 9 towers that were on newly designed wheel bases, this made it really easy to reconfigure the set up dependant on the venue. To run the playback we used a catalyst media server.
Later on in the year we built a custom catalyst rack that went all the way to asia with them. In addition to this,the Stereophincs recorded their music video for 'white lies' whilst we were on tour with them.
