Production designer Alex Nadon contacted Moss LED to utilize over 150 X 6' RGB LuxLines for the Canadian Country Music Awards. We didn't quite have that many in stock and on the shelves so we set about manufacturing them to meet his specifications. The challenge we had was figuring out a method of mounting them to truss as they would be flown high above the stage in Halifax's Scotiabank Centre.
The decision was made to assemble our LuxLine channels onto an T-Slot aluminum base and then mount those via custom-built sliding washers to a U-Channel assembly. This would allow full lateral and vertical movement of each channel to allow them to line up to one another and create the seemless lines effect that Alex was looking for.
The frames were shipped from Christie Lites Toronto, fully assembled along with 30 X LuxDrives and over 3000 feet of our locking 5-pin cables.
With the help from on-site lead technicians Mike Aldcroft, Mike Kapler, Eamonn Pinto, Julie Belzing, as well as the local Halifax IATSE crew, all 39 fully-assembled frames were secured to the truss and hoisted into place.
I believe the results speak for themselves. The CCMAs were aired on Sunday September 13th, live on CBC.
