Media Structures on Britain’s Got Talent 2016
Media Structures were recently involved with the 2016 series of Britain’s Got Talent, building the performance platform for Fifth Harmony, the world’s current biggest selling girl group.
Fifth Harmony were invited to perform on a Semi-Final show to showcase their new single ‘Work From Home’. Along with designing and building the main performance platform for the US five piece, we were also tasked with creating 3 creative scaffolding towers to be used by the band and their backing dancers as part of their elaborate choreography.
With Fifth Harmony dressed in denim and dancers wearing construction helmets and tool belts, we created three towers with the appearance of scaffolding to add to the visual spectacle of the choreography. Considerable care went into the design and build of the towers to ensure that they complied with all health and safety measures, providing a safe and sturdy platform for the girls to perform on.
We also set the performance platform area with LED strobe lighting, helping to create a dazzling effect as the light reflected off the metal scaffolding towers, helping to make the performance even more memorable for the studio audience as well as audiences watching on television at home.
It was a special opportunity for the Media Structures team to work on a show with such a huge profile as Britain’s Got Talent, which attracts many millions of viewers each year. Our team were able to work successfully alongside the ITV production team to provide completely bespoke structures for the special performance by the hugely popular Fifth Harmony. With our in-house design capability and considerable material resources, we were able to use 2D/3D imaging to help create tailored designs for the television producers, allowing us to quickly find a bespoke solution that all parties were delighted with.
