Pitch Battle - set construction
This multi-leveled set filled the entire 550sqm area of the Dock 10 television studio. The main performance area was on three levels, with two 8m long runways passing either side of the judges’ desk, leading to the large main stage area. Both the main stage and the runways featured LED video floors set into black gloss laminate dance floor surface. We also recessed speakers into the main stage, covering these with bespoke grilles.
A large rear video wall contained two further entry points for contestants while a series of four curved staircases linked the main stage to mezzanine balconies at heights of 2m and 4.5m along each side and to the rear of the studio. The balconies accommodated standing areas for audience members, a holding/viewing area for the contestants and also a dedicated stage for the house band. We provided bespoke powder coated steel handrails along each mezzanine balcony, manufactured especially to accommodate the long LED screens mounted along the entire length.
The entire set was manufactured to be easy to dismantle and reinstall for the live final.
