ER Productions was asked to supply more than 235 watts of laser power to accompany a record-breaking show, in which 75,000 fireworks were set off within the space of an hour.
Efficiency was key to being part of such a high profile event, and ER Productions had completed a site survey and shipped over 3 tonnes of laser equipment to the Middle East within two weeks of confirming the contract.
For the big day itself, ER Productions created a full colour laser system rigged to one of the Kuwait Towers, which would form the centrepiece of the celebrations.
The towers were also the focal point for some sophisticated laser mapping activity, which could be seen from Green Island more than four kilometres away, the visual effects eventually breaking up around the capital city’s Al Corniche Club.
Kuwait’s official celebrations were split into five sections, and ER Productions had the important task of introducing each new chapter through five 20 metre cubes built out at sea. Each cube was located 165 metres away from the laser towers, which meant only the finest quality equipment could produce the desired effect. The title of each section was illuminated in Arabic on a cube.
