Members of IATSE Local 15 were proud to play an instrumental part in the celebratory 2014 NFL Kickoff pre-game event prior to the first game of the NFL season matching the Seattle Seahawks against the Green Bay Packers on September 4, 2014 at Century Link Field in Seattle, WA.  The event featured musical entertainment by Pharrell Williams and Soundgarden, appearances by former Seahawks including Steve Largent and Shaun Alexander, plus a video documentary of the Seahawks’ Super Bowl winning 2013 season.  The production in the North parking lot took a week to set up and three days to strike.  Atomic Design did the set design and staging, Firehouse Productions did sound reinforcement, and Chaos Visual did video, among others.  More than one hundred Local 15 workers, from riggers to carpenters, audio/visual technicians and grips were employed over the course of the production.  The Seahawks beat the Packers 36 to 16.  Go Seahawks!  We hope to have this event revisit Seattle again next year.
