A little something Josh Bartos and I cooked up to document the build, use, and take down of the video game company Vivendi's booth for the 2006 E3 convention in at the Los Angeles Convention center in 2006. The video spans 20 days: 14 days of set up, 3 day show , 4 days wrap. We used two little Nikon cool pix cameras, mounted on 2x4s, and suspended above the booth, just off the cat-walk, exposed every 30 seconds.

We couldn't find a vantage point to take in the whole booth, thus the two cameras capturing the left and right angles. In hindsight, we could have melded the two views together in Adobe After Effects, to make one wide screen view, alas. We mounted the cameras so we could have access to the 2 gig SD cards (largest available then) and one of us would show up every day to swap out the cards, bring the 'exposed' back to our media department for downloading. We'd time the card exchange in the thirty seconds between shots.
The most prominent fixture can be seen on the right, a reproduction of the interior of Tony Montana's mansion from the movie and the video game Scarface. The game was made by Radical Entertainment in Vancouver, BC, (one of the best game development houses in the world) and went on to be a big success.
