UVLD was thrilled to be invited by inVNT to design the lighting for a unique experiential event. Members of the automotive community picked up a Buick at the airport and then drove through the countryside, getting a sense of the handling of the car and becoming familiar with the interior. To be sure, it was a great chance to see the product innovations hands-on without the frenetic distractions so often present at the autoshow.
UVLD was asked to join Valencia Production Partners' team as the lighting designer for the Hulu Upfront, our third year on this project.

Production Glue held it all together both as technical directors and staging supervisors.
