IMAX COMICON SAN DIEGO


STAGE-TECH was tasked with building the first outdoor Imax screen ever created for COMIC-CON when STAR TREK BEYOND premiered on JULY 22, 2016 in Embarcadero Marina Park South in San Diego CA. STAGE-TECH had 48 hours to build a scaffold structure under and around an existing roof and stage which required extensive and planning revolving around detailed VECTORWORKS drawings . During the build STAGE-TECH encountered an unforeseen hurdle with change in access to the rear portion of the build and had to revise its plan of attack on sight. Thanks to quick thinking by STAGE-TECH leads the tight schedule was still met with some innovative ideas to it's approach. The scaffold structure used over 1200 pieces of ring type scaffold and took over 300 man hours to build and remove. The finished size of the viewing area as well as placement were critical to the quality of the IMAX image.
