Two concerts in two episodes...

These past two episodes have been kind of crazy for the art department. I've had to design two concerts back to back. The first was a huge outdoor concert with plenty to pull together in only 8 days. We had to build an outdoor stage, create all of the artwork and graphics, work out the stage plan and truss designs, create a backstage area and tents, arrange a fireworks display and more. We pulled it all off in time, only to have torrential rains for 3 days straight. Then once the rains cleared, we had to deal with flooding since we were right along the Cape Fear River. All of the rain, combined with lunar high tides, caused quite a mess. After almost a weeks delay, we finally filmed it and it turned out well. After pulling that off, we received the next script and found yet another concert. This one was meant to be an 80's themed fundraiser within the show. We soon found out that Cheap Trick was going to be the band - very cool. The design for that one seemed kind of obvious - lots of black and white checkerboard patterns. Hopefully the next script has something other than a rock concert in it.
