LOS ANGELES, Jan. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — It was show time, as Eye Q Productions brought the Norwegian Cruise JOY ship, the first ship custom built to serve the high-end Chinese market, to life. Eye Q Productions, an award-winning creative production company in the Los Angeles area, transformed the Norwegian Cruise ship experience into an immersive evening for all of their guests. Eye Q Productions transformed the space into an interactive journey for all to experience. The full production team prepared the JOY cruise ship with the latest revolutionary projection technologies. For two weeks in 2017, the Eye Q Productions team worked alongside cruise performers to create a turnkey technical and creative projection design for two unique shows.
The two shows included Elements, a revue featuring illusions, choreography, and aerialists, and Paradis, which gave the experience of a Parisian speakeasy. For the Elements show, Eye Q Productions mapped out the house walls, stage deck, set, and even costumes, utilizing a large upstage LED wall and LED proscenium. This visually impressive show immersed the audience in each of the four seasons and elements.
Earth was presented in each of the four seasons. Water introduced Muse, a gentle under-the-sea experience which brought audiences deeper into the mystery of the ocean. It then kicked up the fun and excitement factor, playing with water in all its forms, from bubbles into an intense storm at sea.
Airlifted audiences up and blew them away – in a tornado experience. Meanwhile, Fire inspired, heated up and turned the theatre into a virtual fireball. Snow, a beautifully performed ballet, ending with snowfall was the show’s finale number.
Elements utilized a total of 15 video sources, edge-blended and mapped to create a fully immersive experience.
Paradis was a subtler approach to the over-the-top visual effects of Elements. Eye Q Productions took audiences on a journey through the streets of Paris. Audiences enjoyed a peek into a Parisian speakeasy and experienced a mysteriously sexy cabaret revue.
#TeamEyeQ boarded JOY in Papenburg at the Meier Werf shipyard, during the time that the ship was still being built, to install the equipment. The creative team joined in Eemshaven to start the programming process, followed by the cast, at which time rehearsals began for both shows. The team was onboard the Joy for a full month throughout sea trials and the handover ceremony in the Netherlands. The Eye Q Productions team took a few weeks off, and then returned, boarding in Guam. Here, the team put finishing touches on the show and built in the aerialist numbers, disembarking in Hong Kong, after preparing the shows for the ship’s inaugural cruise.
The Eye Q Productions team onboard included Jenni Ogden, President, Jeff Klein, Executive Producer, and Bill Lae, Creative Director. Content designers (animation and video) included Bill Lae, Sam Roseman, Sam Kriemelmeyer, Kelon Cen, Rob Buchanan, Michael Kory, and Stephen Robin.
The technical team was led by Steve Gilbard, Technical Director and Sam Kriemelmeyer, Programmer.
The Norwegian Cruise line has been voted best entertainment by Cruise Critic. The Norwegian team sought out Eye Q Productions to eclipse their current entertainment experience and turn it into an evening of visionary design. The Eye Q team applied 3D projection mapping and technical design, showcasing truly immersive entertainment to audiences worldwide.
Since 2003, Eye Q Productions has created transformative projects, regardless of event size and staging. Eye Q Productions continues to produce visual narratives that take audiences on a journey. No ship experience compares to the roller coaster ride that Eye Q Productions constructed for the Norwegian Cruise audiences.
