"It's been nothing but fun working with you."-Ron Ruehling, Ruehling Associates
IT CAME TO RUEHL THE EARTH! Sci Fi Themed Event, Marketing & Production
In 2002, I designed this event for Ruehling & Associates, a Minneapolis intelligent lighting sales and rental facility for their anniversary and open house for their new facility. The owner, Ron Ruehling is a big sci-fi buff, so we created a kitchy sci-fi theme within a variety of scenes and vignettes, including an alien attack on a school dance, Twilight Zone references, and a B-movie space ship interior. Wherever possible, his lighting and effect inventory was utilized, often in unique ways.
Weather proof light enclosures become space age fuel cells with some well programmed light fixtures and ambient sound.
The command center of the space ship featured a variety of low-budget flashing displays and effects.
A miniature space vignette was created outside this office window featuring planets and a ufo that traveled on a hanging track system.
