Markey's Rental & Staging: Preferred Production Company of the Indianapolis Colts, Kicking Off 2013 Season

As the Preferred Production Company of the Indianapolis Colts, Markey's Rental & Staging provides audiovisual and production services in addition to technical labor for its special events. The popular annual Indianapolis Colts Kickoff Luncheon was held on Friday, August 30 at the Westin Indianapolis.  Over 800 guests were treated to comments from Jim Irsay, Ryan Grigson and Keynote Speaker, Ron "Jaws" Jaworski.  Ron conducted a Q&A session with several offense, defense and special teams players. Each corporate table featured a current player or coach giving the attendees an insider’s look into the National Football League.  

A truss-framed structure was created for the entrance of the Indianapolis Colts players and coaching staff.  Foggers were used to create a special effect as they entered the ballroom.  The set design included white cyclorama fabric flown from the truss with a pair of Colts logo gobos being projected from the downstage truss.  Martin moving lights (Mac 101s, Mac 700 Profiles and Mac 700 Washes) and Martin Stagebars were used to create various lighting effects in the room and on the backdrop.  A 50" vertical plasma lectern featured Colts' graphics and sponsor loops.  A three camera shoot was used including I-Mag HD Projection on a pair of 16' x 9' flown screens.  Two JBL Vertec Line Array speakers provided audio to cover the entire Grand Ballroom and provided a dynamic effect in the room when last season’s highlight video was shown.
