Hase Productions have entered an event content design project in the Live Event category. They produced LED content supporting feature acts for Virgin's pre and post match entertainment at the 2016 AFL Grand Final. Working alongside Sting, The Living End and Vance Joy, Hase Productions brought to life LED screens with striking content as part of the entertainment. Content was produced for 13 LED screens around the MCG's field and parapet, plus three large-format LED screens on the turf. A combined total of 95,648 pixels in diameter, 585 files were cued in sync for each artist's song and broken down to files for every song's verse and chorus. Matt Slater was lead animator with animator Ben Rassmussen working with creative director Dave Hase.
