North Metropolitan TAFE ‘The Graduates 2017’ Fashion Show

Austage provided all the Technical Production for the NMT Fashion Show,  showcasing the fashion created by the students in Western Australia. Each year, Austage Perth endeavour to bring something new to the table through Audio Visual Productions to highlight all the NMT Fashion Students’ hard work.

Government House Ballroom was the new venue chosen this year to hold the annual event. A 14m catwalk was installed to run off the existing venue stage and we utilised the curved ceiling to projection map custom content based on the 17x students displaying their work. Each student had their own designs mapped onto the ceiling and their name “keyed” over the top.

LED lighting was also used to wash the rest of the ceiling as well as the archways around the room which was programmed to complement each category and the students work. This made it a truly unique Audio-Visual experience for everyone but most importantly, the guests.

Live cameras were used to capture and record the event, as well as stream footage backstage to keep all the models and timings on track.

Using Panasonic Projection, Resolume Arena 6, Panasonic Ultra HD Camcorders, EV Evolve Sound System, Clearcomm Wireless Talkback, LED Flood & Strip Lighting.

Jayson De Abreu


Jayson has been in the Audio-Visual Industry for over 20 years. Throughout Australia and across the Asia Pacific Region, there are not many premier venues that he has not worked in.

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. Jayson has literally lived and breathed live events for most of his life. 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.
