Spectacular Kabuki Reveal Thrills Crowd At Lavish Party

By |July 17th, 2018|Products, Projects|1 Comment

We simply LOVE getting to see footage of our rental and custom draperies “in action” out in the world, dazzling audiences far and wide during every type of special event, concert, production, performance, church show, and conference that you can imagine. When our clients share videos and photos of our rental and custom theatrical drapery products with us (and also allow us to share them with our other clients to help give inspiration for other similar events), it always makes our day!

Not long ago one of our incredibly inventive and artistic clients, BP Major (from Major Creative), came to us to help him find a way for he and his team to help “hide” the stunning property that they were hoping to conceal until the very last moment of WOW!…But he also wanted to be sure that the drape didn’t “darken” the event’s overall bright, stylish, and immaculate motif, either. He needed something that would be completely opaque, easy to set up, simple to operate, and still look absolutely marvelous to the crowd, both before and while curtain dropped.

He ended up choosing one of our crisp and clean 23’h x 40’w White Poly Muslin kabuki-ready backdrops with our 10 head Kabu-Key Solenoid System for this big reveal. He set it all up in a very clever location on-site to better disguise some of the fabulous features of this upscale and utterly gorgeous ANR Signature Collection property being presented at his high-end, lavish party. As you can see, the video he shared with us was truly fantastic, and we were beyond delighted that it assisted in making the festivities a huge success. Contact one of our rental representatives today so that we can help you find the perfect drapery and theatrical products for your upcoming one-of-a-kind events, too.

By |April 5th, 2016|Company, Digital Printing, links, News, Products, Rent What Team, Sew What Team|1 Comment

Looking for a unique go-to resource for event and concert design inspiration and ideas?  Prefer to have photo resources and quick explanations – are you a get-it-done efficiently designer type?

We have our Sew What? Inc corporate profile on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/sew-what-inc )

We would love to have you join the conversation.  It’s a fantastic way to just get an idea each day – covering subjects such as digital printing, rental backdrops, Austrian drapery construction, custom drapery installation ideas and more…………..

Here are a couple of recent posts on our LinkedIn Sew What? / Rent What? company page: 

Imagine this, you attend a rock concert and you capture a photo on your phone and upload it to the internet. Where does it appear? Well, no doubt your photo will appear on more than one social account. One that especially comes to mind is Pinterest. So at the click of a button you have the world at your mouse! Sew What? Inc uploads a range of photos that interest and excite us, corresponding with our eight Sew What? inspired boards. These photos all help to share our views on Show Buzz/ Christian Faith/ Pipe and Drape/ Wedding Drapery and much more. Check it out today! https://www.pinterest.com/sewwhatrentwhat/

Wide format digital printing gives us the opportunity to present “picture perfect” images to our audience. Seamless images of up to 16′ wide can be produced, and a variety of fabrics – both for indoor and outdoor use – are available. Sew What? Inc is your source for quality digital printed products and informative and friendly service. In this video we showcase the custom backdrop printed for Australian singer-songwriter, Vance Joy.

First it was lighting – did you know? The sewing came later. We came from the road; lighting / carpentry / road crew / production. Being production minded and experienced has made the world of difference. That’s what allows us to speak “tour-ready and road-friendly” when it comes to textiles. Been around and a part of this crazy industry for a long time now…………… In case you are curious, this shot is from around 1993 – the Van Halen Pound Cake Video Shoot at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Using Pinterest to Entertain and Inspire

By |March 30th, 2016|Company, links|2 Comments

Many know the saying “a picture paints a thousand words.” Imagine this, you attend a rock concert. Along with hundreds of other concert-goers, you capture photos on your phone and upload them to the Internet. Where do these photos appear? Well, no doubt they will appear on more than one social media account.  One of the most fun sites is Pinterest, a company that allows users to share photos from the Internet, both their own and those of others. So at the click of a button, you have the world at your mouse.

Pinterest allows people to share these moments that are captured or discovered. On the Sew What/Rent What Pinterest account, we enjoy “pinning” a range of photos that interest and excite us, some taken by us, some provided to us by our customers, and some discovered on the Internet. We love the opportunity to share our enthusiasm for beautiful custom stage curtains while also inspiring those who discover our boards on Pinterest.

To highlight one of our pins, this collage photo shows several custom stage drapes (produced by Sew What? Inc.) that operate as kabuki drapes. This means that the drapes start out hanging from truss via solenoids (also shown in this collage), and then when the solenoids are released, the backdrops drop to the floor.

Stage curtains don’t just hide the show from the audience until the show begins, but they can also enhance and highlight the action on stage during the show. We discovered this photo on the Wynn Las Vegas webpage promoting “ShowStoppers,” their spectacular presentation of music and dance. The cool tones of the drapery are gorgeous, and we love how the drapery swags and other scenic elements provide an amazing backdrop to the dancers in their beautiful costumes.

These are just a couple of pins on our account. We have created eight different boards, focusing on topics ranging from Stage Drape Descriptions and Stage Design to Special Event Design Ideas, and much more, so there is sure to be something that will inspire you. Why not visit us on Pinterest next time you are surfing the Internet?
