TITLE: LAOCHRA – THE GAA COMMEMORATES 1916
CLIENT: TYRONE PRODUCTIONS Ltd.
LOCATION: CROKE PARK STADIUM
DATE: APRIL 2016
The GAA commemorated 1916 in this historic 30-minute live event which took place on the infamous pitch at Croke Park Stadium. The large scale spectacle was produced by Tyrone Productions and broadcast live on Irish national television, in front of a live audience of 80,000 people. S.E.A. was engaged by the client, on a three-month contract, to project manage and coordinate all the live elements of the production.
Our broad remit included: chairing all stakeholders meetings, maintaining the critical path and budget, programming rehearsals and recordings, liaising with both the live and TV production teams, collaborating with the creative departments, overseeing the technical production build within the stadium, contracting over 300 performers, dancers, actors, singers and musicians, engaging and managing over 25 stage managers.
This was an exceptionally challenging and rewarding project for the S.E.A. team and one we were incredible proud to be part of. This event was considered to be one of the most successful events in Ireland’s 2016 calendar, where the entire country came together to mark the anniversary of 1916.
