PaperMill Media - Casestudy

The Brief:

PaperMill had an exclusive corporate function unveiling a new property Development “The Coburg Quarter”. High Profile event held at the Pentridge Prison.  Unveiling of the branding was of high importance along with speeches regarding the development.  With cocktails , canapés and live music to close the event.


The Challenge:

Pentridge Prison can be a tricky venue with long narrow spaces and very high ceilings. We wanted to keep the atmosphere of the prison but ensure the vision and banners we able to be sighted by all attendees. Pro Light and Sound are familiar with the Pentridge Prison venue and were able to come up with quick solutions and turn around for the event within a very short amount of time.


The Pro Light Solution:

We utilised the large amount of draping to soften the prison walls and to frame large banners displaying the branding of the development. Drape was also useful to dampen the echo in such a large concrete room. Lighting was used to not only accentuate the branded banners but also to create a theme effect within the space. Pro light and Sound have a custom rigging solution for the vision screens and also the audio to maximise the use of the space


The Result:

With the use of the custom rigging -keeping the vision screens and speakers off the floor the space was maximised for the amount of attendees. The lighting theming was very effective and created a  real “wow factor”


Customer Testimonials:

“I just wanted to send a huge thank you to everyone at PLS. You have all been absolutely amazing to work with and please pass on my thanks to Stav and the team who helped set up and worked during the event today. They went above and beyond and we really appreciate it. Looking forward to working with you all again in the future!”
