Production and Competition Collide (in a good way)…

LPG recently had the opportunity to put our production skills to the test at the Gay Games in Cleveland, Ohio. Chris Lipari, owner of LPG, competed in the figure skating Free Dance program, winning his third GG gold medal.
The final evening of the event is always a gala exhibition for the skaters to perform under “the lights” and away from the judges eyes. Well, due to a miscommunication, “the lights” were never ordered, nor plotted or budgeted.
Chris jumped into action, secured a local rental house, Vincent Lighting Systems, www.VLS.com, and put together a very effective yet economical package of LED wash lights, follow spots and communications gear and a show was born!
All competitors had the chance to shine and perform their favorite programs.
