Joondalup Festival 2018

When we were approached to project video on to nine shipping containers, stacked 3×3, we knew we were in for a treat.

Working with the City of Joondalup to provide audio and visual for the main stage, Austage Events Perth was tasked with building the canvas on which 20 years of arts and culture in Joondalup were celebrated.

Locking 20 tons of shipping container into place for the projection surface was the first piece of the puzzle. Once in place, two double-stacked Panasonic 20K projectors created an image that would let shine the vivid colours of the festival.

Special mention to Roly Skender of Frankensound who created the amazing video content for the evening, and all of the fantastic artists, performers, and volunteers who made the Joondalup Festival so magical. It was a joy to be a part of this great event for the City of Joondalup.

Starting as a junior technician in the first Austage warehouse on Mitchell Road Jayson has had the pleasure of witnessing and contributing to the Austage Events business as it grew from its early beginnings, to the national brand it is today.

Having been raised in and around the theatre industry as a child, watching his parents Joe and Colleen work across all the theatres in Sydney. From his family’s deep history in theatre and audio-visual events, Jayson has seen the technology shift from the days of Slide Projection and Graphic Sets through to the Ultra High Definition realm of projection and mapping we find ourselves in today. Supported by excellent teams of technicians (his brothers in arms) in each office across Australia, Jayson has the rewarding job of working with Australia’s leading minds in the Event Industry.

He is grateful and proud of the diligent work achieved by all Austage Events employees, maintaining the high standards set by his mentor and father Joe De Abreu. Jayson passionately supports Chelsea Football Club and loves his Holden V8s.
