True to their namesake, the Quasars were designed as large, dynamic set pieces to anchor the production elements for the Field Show. Each unit contained several high intensity lighting elements, CO2 jets, flame projectors, and remote controlled lifts to further enlarge the pieces once deployed on the field.

Given the ample resources provided by the Quasar set pieces and stadium special effects, we were able to create an action-packed visual spectacular driven by a high energy soundtrack mixed live during the show. With a running time of just over 1:30, there was never a lull in the action as a new series of effects were revealed in tight synchronization with each musical transition, culminating in a fireworks finale from the stadium rooftop.

The visuals were driven by the concept of “stars aligning”. We played with different elements from the event branding and composed them to the custom remix we did for this show of Skrillex’s “Rumble”. With a focus on kinetic typography we supported our field show while providing all necessary information to create the optimal setting for the game opening. It was a vibe.
