Project Runway-Foxtel Arena

We were asked to come up with a simple and stylised set for the new 2012 "Project Runway" promotions. The task was made very much easier as the Director (Jessica O'sullivan), Designer (Sze Lock), Stylist (Leigh Dalton) and DP (Emilio Abbonizio) were all very willing to collaborate and work towards something that was achievable in the time frame and still look fantastic. We painted all of our own backdrops, had large hessian drapes made and built and painted most of the props. I really wanted everything to be knocked back and aged as much as possible so that set elements would always be part of the dark and smokey atmosphere.  Damian fitzgerald and Scott Janson both had a hand in painting the set pieces.

"Masters" Headphones in Perth

The final leg, Perth.

All the headphone pieces were loaded into 2 semitrailers and hauled from Sydney to Perth. We arrived a couple of days later (into a nine day heatwave) and began the task of stripping off all the Moove cartons and re-cladding with Masters cartons. Once again this took about 7 days and then we set up the headphones down on the water front. It all went very smoothly and despite the constant 39C degree  days we had a great time in Perth. The headphones also looked particularly striking with the green spearmint cartons.
