On December 31 2017, the historic city of Zakopane in the south of Poland, was home to one of the largest public festivities celebrating New Year’s Eve in Europe. The team at ARAM worked alongside over 70 additional crew members led by the world-renowned production designer Giorgos Stylianou-Matsis and lightning designer Adam Tyszka, to deliver state-of-the-art video technology and lightning setup for the event.
The result ? A spectacular design, fully complementary to the unique positioning of the stage – right at the foot of the Tatry Mountains – anticipating and countering the weather conditions, and providing a completely unique viewing experience to fans on-site and online alike. Over 90,000 visitors enjoyed the show live, with over 7,9 million viewers tuning in to the TVP2 broadcast.
“We’re incredibly proud to have been able to work together with one of the largest Polish broadcasters and many talented designers and directors on Europe’s biggest stage celebrating this special moment of the year” said Rafal Mrzyglocki, CEO at ARAM. “ARAM specializes in designing and delivering interactive multimedia productions for a variety of events, but Sylwester Marzeń was a very unique project to work on. Due to its location, the scope of festivities and many challenging elements that came with it, this stage is one of the most complex productions we’ve ever worked on, and one that will continue to inspire us for a very long time.”
