DJ Drew and the Level Up Crew headed to San Anselmo on October 25th for Drake’s 2014 Disney Homecoming. When DJ Drew first met with the school, the ASB Teacher, Kendall, emphasized that this was the most important dance of the year. She wanted something that was different and that would WOW the students. Kendall also explained that she wanted the Disney Theme brought out. The Level Up Team put their heads together and came up with a perfect plan! We would cut the gym in half, but not just any normal way… we would divide the gym up with a 60 FOOT VIDEO WALL! The wall would project photos, videos, and visuals of Disney! On the floor, we would have a custom lighting design with 4 Truss Towers, a Custom Stage, and 4 LED Battery Powered Dance Platforms for the students to dance on.
Drake, also had a smaller gym right next door where food and beverages would be! We decided to uplight the gym with blue and purple to give it a little character. Our team also thought that this space would be perfect for our open air photo booth.
Take a look at some of our photos during the design process…
As we started to put the show together, our team switched the look up just a little bit, but it enclosed the space even more to make sure everything was compact and didn’t feel “too” open. Here are some other photos during the setup process…
As the doors opened and the kids’ came into the gym, they couldn’t believe their eyes! From the Video Wall, the Lighting, LED Dance Platforms, and the Music, the kids were STOKED! If the students’ got tired of dancing, they would hop into the photo booth, and come back to party with DJ Drew! We also had our videographer, Sarah there, taking photos and video! The students’ LOVED THAT! By the end of the night, the students’ didn’t want to leave. DJ Drew got up in front of everyone and had them rocking to Don’t Stop Believing because the San Francisco Giants won that night, and then closing it with “We Are Young”! When the gym lights turned on, students came up to the Level Up Team and thanked them for a night they would never forget. Kendall, the ASB Teacher, the principal and the assistant, also thanked us and said they had never been a part of something like this!
Here are some of the photos from the night. ENJOY!
