UVLD Lights Hyundai Press Event At Los Angeles Auto Show

HyundaiUnlimited Visibility Lighting Design (UVLD) partnered with Martin Brinkerhoff Associates (MBA) to light the world-premier announcement of Hyundai’s Green initiatives for the automotive press at the Los Angeles Auto. The manufacturers’ complete product line was then shown to the public November 21-30.

The environmentally friendly theme took center stage with cascading silk emulating water and giant leaf cut-outs evoking autumn -all of which flowed out the projection screens by cast of ten dancers who performed three production numbers. The individual product reveals were visually narrated by high-energy video modules designed and executed by MBA.

UVLD, under the director of creative director Martin Brinkerhoff, leveraged the lighting fixtures from Hyundai’s public show for the press event. “By augmenting the original package with additional moving lights we were able to have a larger system than the initial budget would have suggested,” notes UVLD lighting designer Greg Cohen. “That was especially crucial given today’s economy.”

UVLD built on the Green scenario by using custom branch- and leaf-shaped gobos identical to animation elements in the videos to cast graphic patterns on the fabric swathing the vehicles before their reveals. Speaker lighting was provided downstage where executives paused to address attendees. “Ultimately, what was most important was the products and giving the Hyundai execs the time and space to speak to the press about their advances in Green technology,” Cohen points out.
