Believe it or not, trade show displays and components are commonly used in both television and movies. FB Displays & Designs’ major partner, Nomadic Display, is constantly proving how their custom products can transcend the trade show floor. Here’s some of their work that you may have seen on the screen!
Nomadic created the black and yellow backdrops used behind the commentators for FOX’s Sunday Night Football. In a frame of four days, eight custom made fabric backwall displays were created to be used from coast-to-coast. These displays were designed to be easily broken down and set-up for the filming of game highlights.
The NFL Network was so impressed by the FOX Sunday Night Football set designs, they asked Nomadic to create the backdrops for their sets on Thursday Night Football. The goal was to create a unique custom display that gave maximum visual impact with ease of setup.
Nomadic has been providing the backdrops for “American Idol” since 2002. The backdrops can be seen at the first weeks of each season during the audition process. The popularity of the American Idol sets caught the attention of NBC who requested Nomadic create the set for their popular reality TV show “America’s Got Talent”.
Back in the late 90s, Nomadic’s C34 Instand frames were used as an element on the set of Start Trek Voyager. The frames made up the design of the Holodeck, a cyber portal on one of the most advanced vessels in the star fleet. This set marked Nomadic’s television debut.
Nomadic displays have also appeared in the recent films “Up In The Air” with George Clooney and “Love and Other Drugs” with Jake Gyllenhall. For more information on Nomadic Display’s projects in the entertainment industry, please visit http://www.nomadicdisplay.com/news/entertainment/
