DMC COMP 2014

The DMC World DJ Comp is the biggest, most respected DJ Comp in the world, and has been been since DMC launched the DMC WORLD DJ CHAMPIONSHIPS in 1985 when a young Londoner called Roger Johnson took the first title in London’s fantastic Hippodrome where DMC staged a DJ Convention.

It took America’s DJ Cheese in 1986 to bring the best out of the turntables by scratching his way to DMC’s first ever World Title. By the following year, turntable tricks started to establish themselves with the emergence of props, body tricks and a variety of scratching techniques, DJs scratched with bicycles and even kitchen sinks. And the venue that had never before featured a DJ let alone heard hip-hop riffs, the Royal Albert Hall rang to the mighty sound of scratching, yet to be called turntablism.

This year Showtime was proud to be an official sponsor of the prestigious event providing staging, decks and a complete Audio visual solution for the venue.

Showtime, SHFA and Bloodline come together for the month of love.

Showtime Productions were contracted to create a design for the Sydney Darling Harbour Foreshore’s celebration of the month of love. The final creation which was suspended under the Darling Harbour overpass was a whopping 4 mtr heart built in Eurotruss HD 34 trussing. The huge feature was illuminated with Chauvet Legend 230 beams and heap of happy tubes. The entire piece was operated via a Martin M1 controller. The heart was designed so it could be viewed from every angle within the Darling Harbour area and has become a commonly photographed feature for both local and international punters.

Roof Structure Taronga Zoo

Director Asher Daoud and production manager Aldo Fabrizio of Showtime productions were contracted for the supply and installation of a temporary roof structure for Taronga Zoo’s New Years Eve festivities.

From this, Showtime alongside Showtools International confidently engaged Eurotruss to design and develop an adaptable roof that would cater for wide variety of event types and capacities whilst using existing Eurotruss HD34 stock. Showtime’s production manager, Aldo Fabrizio wrangled through extensive research and development with the Eurotruss team to ensure the design and manufacture of the structure met all relevant standards and specifications.

“We were jubilant with how quick and easy the structure was erected, it not only meets Australian standards it surpasses them. The ability to expand the stage in height, width and length makes it versatile and functional for almost any event size and/or type. The roof was a huge success with the promoter and punters,” commented Aldo on the ease of erection, structural integrity along with the overall design and look of the roof.

Mary’s Newtown

The 100-year-old building housing Mary’s has had a few tenants over the years, including a Greek men’s club and even a sexual health clinic.

Mary’s owners Jacob Smyth (ex-Bodega) and Kenny Graham (ex-Gardel’s Bar) got hold of the old pile of bricks, gutted the inside and spruced up the joint from top to bottom.

The original floorboards have been retained and the lovely wooden tables are made from recycled railway sleepers. The long bar is also fashioned from recycled lumber and sits underneath the mezzanine level – a feature that was cleverly added during construction. Nice touches such as the homemade Jack Daniel’s light fittings and the feature wall made of timber, inlaid with mirrors, adds a snappiness to the room

Keeping with the theme our Install crew decided to add a full QSC audio system complete with intuitive control and wall play connectivity.

You’ll be sure to hear the final product next time you dine in, Ohh and it will be loud!

Don’t say we didn’t warn you 🙂

Patrician Brothers’ College

Project Objective

Patrician Brothers’ College Fairfield is a Catholic school for boys in Years 7-12, established by the Brothers’ of St. Patrick in 1953. The College had just recently undergone a building refurbishment program, giving it modern facilities, and were in need of refreshment in the music room.Showtime were called and like always presented with the task of supplying and installing a system that boasted both functionality and practicality, which allowed particularly the year 12 HSC music students to sit exams in an environment that would compliment their hard work  and be practical in terms of use, helping to ensure maximum results.

Our Solution

A group of sections totalling 39 meter in drape with heavy duty tab trackt was installed to allow the room to be configured in way and compliment a lighting system consisting of Chauvet Colordash Batten Quad 6’s and etc source 4 profiles, all controlled by the incredibly easy to use Jands Stage CL, designed specifically for LED fixtures but just as suitable for conventional lights – which we integrated via a DMX 4 pak!

 

George St Fashion Show

The next generation of fashion designers, styling and fashion couture were on display again at the annual TAFE NSW Fashion show. Held at ATP, Showtime were at the forefront of designing an effective layout of the room to suit the organisers, designers, models and, most importantly, fashion scouters and crowd.

The 18m runway was well lit with 24 multipars as well as 16 Martin 101’s for effect, across 2 separate sections of flown truss at 18m length for each. Arian Yeganeh, Showtime’s Production Manager commented, “Considering this wasn’t one of the main bays at ATP, it was a little trickier to work with but having the right amount of planning we got it spot on with layout, rigging and equipment…The room looked great for all involved and overall it was a smooth operation from our end” The lighting was complemented by 8 x Nexo PS15’s for an even distributed sound across the space.

Magique Halloween Circus

This highly charged show demanded a lighting rig and control to suit, with scenes themed to the event. Showtime turned to a range of Martins including Mac 101’s, 250 Entours and Mac 700’s all integrated with inhouse Mac 500’s and 600’s. Arian Yeganeh noted … “The range of movers allowed us to achieve some great looks and cues to accommodate what was happening on stage – the show was absolutely electric”
