USA - Presented annually by the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, the Youth Evangelism Conference (YEC) recently celebrated its 50th anniversary during a two-day live event that draws in students and youth leaders from across Tennessee.
Wanting a production design to match the occasion, event organisers worked with Atlanta-based Stacked Heart Productions who brought in designer Justin Kitchenman, Align Design Group, programmer Gavin Lake, and production partner Elite Multimedia who provided an expansive audio, lighting, LED video and live IMAG video design.
Kent Shingleton, YEC executive producer, comments: “Throughout our history, we have produced the event in six different venues and each year we try to bring something new. I have been wanting to implement LED video into our design for a few years now, and when I spoke with Elite Multimedia they put together a great package of lighting, audio, rigging and LED video, all at a price that we needed to be at.”
Having been a member of the production team behind YEC for the last 20 years, Shingleton now oversees all aspects of the weekend production and is commonly referred to as “the YEC guy”. With so many moving parts which require his attention, the selection of a production partner is key to the events success.
“We do rely heavily on our production partners to help us make it happen behind the scenes, and we have worked with a number of production companies throughout the years,” admits Shingleton. “After we met with Elite Multimedia and explained to them our desire to have both LED and live IMAG video in this design, they really came through, and it looked amazing.
“Throughout the entire design process and final production, the team at Elite Multimedia was extremely professional,” concludes Shingleton. “They really took the time to understand what our event was trying to accomplish. With the amount of gear they were able to provide, I feel we like they went above-and-beyond in helping our 50th Anniversary celebration be something truly special.”
