Massive Productions ‘Lights The Sky’ Over Curaçao With CHAUVET Professional

Victoria Wasylak • MMR GlobalSupplier Scene • March 30, 2020

Reaching 56.4 meters above the crystal blue waters of St. Anna Bay, the Queen Juliana Bridge (the highest such structure in the Caribbean), affords spectacular views of this nation’s capital city and its beautiful beaches. On the evening of March 22, it also offered an inspiring view of the future, when it served as the centerpiece of “Light The Sky” in Curaçao.

Initiated on the island nation by Ian Sillie, the project, which originated in The Netherlands, was built around the theme “Let’s Inspire Hope Together.” Glittering as it did in light, with beams from a collection of CHAUVET Professional Maverick and Rogue fixtures cutting through the dark sky, the bridge fulfilled this role brilliantly, serving as a reminder to all that the creative spirit that runs through Curaçao will continue to shine brightly long after the coronavirus has faded into history.

Massive Productions was contacted by Sillie to light the famous bridge. The company’s Izichiel Cocalves coordinated the project, overseeing the placement of 16 Maverick MK1 Hybrid and 16 Rogue R2 Spot fixtures on the bridge’s slope. Although the bridge was open to traffic during the event, the Massive team was able to complete its work smoothly thanks to close cooperation from the police.

“Here, as in the rest of the world, the entertainment industry was brought to a temporary standstill,” said Jimmy Lo-A-Njoe, director of Massive Productions. “The entire entertainment lighting community in Curaçao came together on this to light up the sky here. Most companies did this from their warehouses; we did this as well, but fortunately we were one of two chosen to light the bridge.”
