“Thanks to your brilliant team for 100% perfection at the NCC Awards. Totally reliable, flawless and highly recommended.”
The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is the Sector Skills Council and Industry Training Board for the construction industry. The National Construction College (NCC) Awards organized by the CITB are an opportunity to recognize the dedication and effort put in by both employers and apprentices.
The objectives of the annual NCC Awards are to deliver an uplifting and motivating event, to recognize the hard work and dedication of staff, to reward the best achieving apprentices and to build strong partnerships and recognize the contributions of employers and sponsors.
Being a not-for-profit organization with limited budgets and utilizing training venues rather than conference facilities offered the scope to be creative about delivery. Our proposal sought to encompass the construction industry theme and utilized scaffolding as the stage set. The space around the screen was filed with graphic panels and views of the back stage area were obscured through the use of LED lighting arranged on battens facing the audience.
The training venues selected by CITB had considerable natural light within them which necessitated the use of equipment that would be effective in non-blackout conditions. The scaffolding stage sets meant that screens and graphics had to be carefully sized to fit the unique dimensions of the set and incorporate a blackout tunnel for the projector. Additionally, the distances travelled and timescale set dictated that a crew was on the road for the whole four week period.
Green Spark delivered all the media for this project including the filming on location and editing of 61 individual winners’ video clips. The package also included an opening video for each ceremony and live video to screen on the largest event in Norfolk.
