Plug n Play – Stockholm
About the act
The iPad act was a custom creation, made to be performed in the Stockholm booth at MIPIM trade show in Cannes. It was commissioned by lovely bureau Step2 Communications and the brief was to create a visual, magical and striking presentation about Stockholm using modern technology.
Charlie Caper and Erik Rosales imagined, scripted and built it. We also flew in Ben Seidman from the US to help with all aspects of it and the music was written by Markus Jägerstedt. The video on the iPads is made by Image Research.
We are doing more projects like this and are currently both developing this concept and other completely different ones.
“all we can do is hold our hands up and offer a hearty ‘well done’ to those involved. Color us impressed.”
“Swedish magicians + 7 new iPads = One of the best presentations you will ever see”
“New iPad Act Awesome performance”
“So much more” was made to be played regularly on Swedish tv channel Kanal 9 between their programming.
The brief was to create something where the audience wouldn’t be able to tell what was magic and what was special effects. The client also wanted the particular framing, song, tattoo and use of t-shirts.
The rest was developed by Charlie Caper who created the magic effects, t-shirt transitions, made a video storyboard and invented a method for editing seamlessly while using only one camera.
To help on site Charlie brought in Axel Adlercreutz to act as assistant.
