Laser Spectacles was hired back at Mardi Gras Galveston in 2013 to add laser effects to the Jagermeister Stage at 21st Street and Strand Street. The weather was better this year – no rain, and not so cold!
Buc Days (short for Buccaneer Days) is one of the oldest festivals in Texas, operating continuously since 1938 to celebrate the coming of the summer season. For the 2013 festival they decided to run laser advertising for the upcoming event…
We had not been back to the Lutcher in a few years, and even then, we were indoors in the fabulous theater. Now, we were planning an outdoor event using the side of the building itself as the screen – this was good, because the theater has huge white walls all around! We selected the side that faced their giant parking lot, with plenty of room for a crowd to watch the show from.
Laser Spectacles spent an enchanting weekend performing at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Stafford, Texas (just SW of Houston) for the Indian New Year celebration.
This year we were asked to produce a special laser show for the opening party – this is the bash held the night before the conference kicks off, and the attendees can mingle and meet while enjoying a variety of food and drink and entertainment.
We headed back to McAllen this time with a brand new thirty minute laser show ready to go! The weather was perfect, and the people friendly. The City of McAllen decided to move the laser show in the overall program, to 11:28 PM, 32 minutes before midnight, and we would do a countdown into the New Year of 2012!
When we look at a site for the first time, we are always keeping an eye open for what buildings are in the area.
Buildings can be the most stable and reliable laser screens, and often have a historical connection with the community that adds an extra dimension to the laser show. Plus, lasers can project very, very large, and we are looking for something to showcase that impressive ability – often the right building will add a substantial WOW factor to the laser show. And that is something that everyone is looking for!
