McDonald’s

Designing and programming the lighting for McDonald’s biennial worldwide convention is no small task but Lightswitch lighting designer John Featherstone knew that partnering with Prelite Studios would enable him to maximize his creative time in an offline environment and get a big head start on programming hundreds of automated and conventional fixtures.

Featherstone has been a client of Prelite, which helps lighting designers and programmers use emerging technologies to previsualize lighting and video elements for productions, since its founding. He teamed with them on the last McDonald’s convention two years ago.

Chicago, Ill.⎯ EDGE ShowTek of Northbrook, Illinois was recently tapped for audio support of the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Celebration Rally. An estimated 2 million fans lined Michigan Avenue to join the Blackhawks in celebrating their hard-earned win.
