The Institute of Directors Annual Convention conference set. The Albert Hall main stage is unusual because of its sheer scale. Anything looks small when it stands on a stage that is 40 feet wide. Yet this stage had to have two focal points: a lectern and a table for discussion. The solution was to create a huge ski slope with a video wall at the top and a lectern at the bottom. Broadcast lighting meant finding a bright enough video wall that would not wash out under any amount of lighting, so we opted for the new ProCube system. Sightlines had to be right for the three thousand delegates in the hall, and also work for news broadcasters and print media who covered the event. Three further sets were created along similar lines, eventually making use of Alan Fletcher's excellent new IOD logo which replaced the earlier rather industrial slab serif identity. We experimented each time with different techniques for video projection and construction. The sets were designed for simplicity as construction had to be completed within a twelve hour window the day before the opening of the event.
