“disguise is very well thought out in terms of having all the roles needed in a production in the system at once, working together. From my station, I could manage every piece of equipment spread out around the grounds of the UN. I was able to respond to the needs of the 59 team rapidly and help them be more efficient.”
Since the Global Goals event was one of the first to use VFC cards, disguise provided an on-site technician to support DWP Live at the UN. “The comfort of having a direct line on site meant that we knew the show would go well — and indeed it did!” declares Ryle.
“The VFC cards came online without a fuss. We set the resolutions and feeds and had a show. No one on the team was ever waiting for the systems, even when we were all in the project and new content was being loaded.”
The projection mapping was recorded and highlighted in the Global Citizen Festival, a celebrity-packed evening of entertainment that capped the Global Goals roll out and drew 60,000 people to Central Park’s Great Lawn.
At DWP Live general partner Rick Boot was the primary project manager for the event; president Danny Whetstone and general manager Greg Foster played key roles in planning, developing, and executing the process.
