Eric Newkirk is a problem solver. Eric is the VP of Design and Creative at CEAVCO Audio Visual, and every day he and his team take on complex, diverse client challenges and find strategic, innovative ways to address them. It’s no small task. How do they do it? By bringing experience gained from 300+ shows a year to bear on every client engagement.
Matt Emerson, President of CEAVCO Audio Visual, describes how CEAVCO’s video and audio experts, set designers, and creative services staff collaborate closely to share design ideas and strategies for taking every event to the next level.
CEAVCO supports over 300 events a year. For each event, the team begins by holding an ideation session, where the team reviews the client’s needs and specific event goals. The team’s favorite part of the process is brainstorming ideas with clients about how to make each new event even more engaging and successful than the last.
This year, CEAVCO Audio Visual is once again a sponsor of Film on the Rocks at Colorado’s historic Red Rocks Amphitheater. The Denver Film Society is a valued partner of CEAVCO’s, and Red Rocks is one of the ultimate Colorado experiences.
The 18th season of Film on the Rocks includes nine events throughout the summer. Each film is preceded by a live concert and local comedian. The CEAVCO team is especially looking forward to the May 25th showing of the long-awaited Grateful Dead documentary Long Strange Trip. The film includes never-before-seen interviews, footage and photos combined with a career-spanning soundtrack focusing on the Grateful Dead’s live performances.
Located in the foothills of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, Red Rocks is one of the world’s most beautiful venues and is known for its acoustically perfect sound. The first film screened in the program was Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather. Almost 60,000 people attend Film on the Rocks events each year.
