It’s always so gratifying when a group of talented individuals all come together to pull off something exciting and innovative for their audiences to enjoy. Rent What? loves to be a part of these ventures, and recently got to work with one of our favorite clients, Dave Brooks, on a very impressive event. Working with AV company NPI and Vincent Lighting Systems, Mr. Brooks was able to help produce something exciting for his audience to remember for years to come.

As a production manager for Pieter Bouterse Studio in Cleveland, he designed and created the stage set and kabuki drape reveal for the press conference announcing the new naming rights of the Cleveland Browns Stadium into becoming FirstEnergy Stadium. We know that he needed to depend on our system to work right the first time, because it was a very high-profile event both in person with local news coverage, as well as with tens of thousands of viewers online. Mr. Brooks knew he could count on our brand new and ultra-sleek, lightweight, and very easy to install Solenoid System to do a double drop (first to drop down their drape to cover up the announcement, then a second drop to reveal the name of the new stadium). The result was fantastic!!

You can see the drop for yourself in a wonderful piece that videographer David I. Anderson did on the Plain Dealer on Cleveland.com.   Check it out below or here (our drop is about a minute and a half into the piece) and see for yourself that a kabuki drop is a surefire way to excite and captivate your audience every time!
