A Time For Heroes 2017 Recap

Posted by Elyse

We had an amazing time at the 28th annual A Time for Heroes event by the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDs Foundation (EGPAF). EGPAF is an incredible foundation with an even more impressive mission. A Time for Heroes raises awareness and vital funds aimed at ending AIDS in children. Since inception, EGPAF has reached over 26 million women around the globe with lifesaving services. A Time for Heroes is such an entertaining event full of celebration and fun organized, designed, and meticulously executed by the wonderful team at Simply Troy! Check out a couple of the stations below!

A Time For Heroes - Space 2

This Galactic Universe Room was out of this world! Our Space Backdrop adorned the wall and set the stage for this intergalactic experience. This room was full of fun and unique arts and crafts stations. The kids could choose between making their own slime, being transformed into Aliens with funky makeup, or decorating mini Space pumpkins. To top it off, the room was filled with Space-themed music and dancing. What a space-y time!

A Time for Heroes - Space 2

From Space to taking a road trip! Take a drive on this highway in the stunning Tesla below. The smaller Tesla replicas were driven around a race track by eager and excited kids. While the children were racing on the track, their parents could check out the brand new Tesla with all of its features and amenities. It was so much fun to see so many children and their parents loving this interactive station!

WORLD EMOJI DAY!😝 Need we say more?

It’s World Emoji Day & we’re feeling more than a little excited about it 🤗 . July 17th is World Emoji Day, which began three years ago today! The date was selected from where else, but the Calendar emoticon 📅 .  July 17th is the lucky date on the calendar. It’s the most fitting date to celebrate this awesome day. Emojis have opened our eyes and our feelings. We can now express ourselves in a visually captivating way. Digital communications via social media, text messaging, emailing and chatting have reached a whole new level. Emojis can complement or replace words.👌

Emojis as a way of life 🙌

Who doesn’t love to use emojis as a way of expressing themselves?

You said something funny? 😂

You’re feeling under the weather? 🤒

You absolutely love what we posted? 😍

Feeling a little sassy & snarky? 😜

Emoji conversations make digitally communicating much more fun and expressive. It’s an easy way to break the ice or to complement a conversation. Or to get to the point when you don’t feel like saying much else. 💯

Back to the Basics – Dynamic Lighting

Posted by Elyse

Have you ever wondered how you can revamp any background with different lighting? What happens when you choose a certain color backdrop, but you want to offer a versatile background choice for a variety of acts? The solution: LIGHTING. This dilemma happens with many of our clients and we’re featuring two of them below.

Purple Lighting - Drapes Blue 2 Stars

Our  blue drapes with stars backdrop was chosen as the main element for our clients’ stage décor. While they had a chef on stage with elements of fire on each side, the blue drapes were a perfect fit for the fire and ice feel.

Purple Lighting - Drapes Blue 2 Stars

Believe it or not! Above is still our blue drapes with stars backdrop. Doesn’t look blue, does it? Once our client decided to switch up the presenters to a live DJ, a purple tone was more appropriate for the feeling of the music and as day turned into night. The color of the drapes, from blue to purple, was easily transformed with a red gel to create the purple tones behind DJ & MC David Krieger. Back to the basics of your RGBs! Think of all the customization opportunities lighting can provide to any backdrop you use. Effortlessly optimize any backdrop to match your color scheme!

For every scene, this client had different color drapes. All they had to do is change the gels! It was literally that easy. You can always change colors of our backdrops with fun and unique lighting tricks! Use lighting to color match our backdrops to whatever color you desire.

Green Lighting - Twilight Forest 1

Another one of our clients used our Twilight Forest backdrop as part of their stage décor. Our Twilight Forest backdrop has a beautiful misty haze in the background of the scene. The forefront lush forest is full of greenery and brown hues, which is emphasized with the green front lighting above.

Blue Lighting - Twilight Forest 1

With a different act, comes a different color! The mood is completely transformed to fit the band. Check out the cooler, blue tones below. It is truly incredible to witness the power of front lighting in morphing our backdrop from one image to the next!
