Saint Gobain's World Tour stop in Philadelphia

When French glass-maker Saint-Gobain's 350th Anniversary World Tour stopped in Philadelphia, PPP was chosen to manage the entire production. Architectural planning, permitting, setup, crew, infrasturcture support and a few odds and ends like a 120kw dual generator or a last minute visitor ramp where on the task list. Here a client's clip of the show's Shanghai setup.
French conceived & Czech built our Parisian friends of FC2 created and managed worldwide. Not a small task but well received as the stream of 100k plus visitors in 6 days and a very happy Saint-Gobain USA team confirmed.

WhiteWall-Lumas at Javits Center

...for the PDN photo show at New York's Javits Convention Center came WhiteWall a printing, framing and artwork firm from Berlin, born out of better known art company Lumas. With only two weeks planning time we pulled off the cross-Atlantic implementation of the idea. Large visuals worked well, like magnets giving proof to the popularity of the booth and confirming the important presence at this show.

2x 16:9, an unusual format

For Germany’s banknote & creditcard maker Giesecke & Devrient and agency Cadrage, we produced NY scenes for G&D's new image film.  Because of the 2x 16:9 HD environment, all actors appear fairly small in an ultrawide frame now fuse that with New York City's landscape, that's a challenge.
Seven locations in 1 1/2 days with company moves all across town, made for a busy schedule...but we made it happen. See the original clip here...

From the Vault: The Maybach Launch

appeared in the video bin of launch events from 2002. When 9/11 hit our friends from OSK came six months after, and showed commitment to New York by inviting the world press to the Big Apple. Crossing the sea on top of the Queen Elizabeth 2 ocean liner the first limousine arrived in style. Click below and watch the 'Behind The Scenes' Film by Edward Basile:
A giant helicopter picked up the glass container with the car inside to drop it at the feet of the assembled world press. Instrumental from the initial concept we lead the team on the ground and provided key production support. No easy show it was... but one for the ages.

Livestream for 'Engage' New York

Livestreaming aka webcasting is an appealing way to extend your message and reach an ever farther audience, while engaging your viewers during the event. We've been working in this field for over 20 years, and because of smart phones and video compression 'viewer interaction' is now more popular & mobile than ever

For Socialbakers, a social media metrics company, we streamed their day-long seminar from the Bohemian National Hall, and reached a truly global audience from India, Europe, South, Latin & North America, see a short clip of the show above.
