At the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival, Essay Video installed the rooftop outdoor LED at two sites. The festival took place at multiple sites. Essay provided the rooftop installs at Spring Studio and Standard Hotel. This included the Tribeca Talks and Podcast sessions, followed by the Tribeca Film Festival Awards and Tribeca X.
To produce this event, Essay brought together an engineering and rigging team since outdoor LED screens require careful preparations prior to the show for safety regulations. To accomplish this, the rigging apparatus was designed to withstand high-winds, and the drawings had to be signed off by an NY professional engineer . This included high-wind action plans to meet NYC DOB regulations.
