Showforce attends the Middle East Film and Comic Con

The Dubai World Trade Center played host to a fun filled and star-studded line up at this years’ Middle East Film and Comic Con which saw over 60,000 fans attend the highly popular convention. Over its six-year history, the MEFCC has been attended by some of the most respected actors and actresses in the world, including the likes of William Shatner, Nick Frost and this year’s star, Kristian Nairn who played Hodor in Game of Thrones.

Jonathan Quitt, director of Quad E Consulting engaged Showforce to assist with the build and delivery of a 10 metre x 20 metre stand for the new Netflix series, Lost in Space. Showforce provided six crew including a production manager to recreate the interior film set of the spaceship called ‘Jupiter’ and the exterior of the stand replicated the ‘crash site’. The Showforce crew worked tirelessly to ensure the stand was equipped with extensive environmental lighting, audio and scenic effects to bring it to life.

Once the event drew to a close, the crew were on hand to assist with the de-rig, eventually completing a total of 312 hours’ worth of work throughout the eight days that they were onsite.

“Ricky provided me with extraordinary support throughout the project. The Showforce crew was dedicated, highly professional and client friendly. They were a pleasure to work with.” Jonathan Quitt, Quad E Consulting
