Every year, the United Way of Southern West Virginia puts on the biggest show in the region, and wouldn’t trust anyone with that task but Cucumber and Company! Their “Dancing With The Stars” event pairs local celebrities in teams that compete not only on the dance floor the night of the event, but also in fund raising for the United Way of Southern West Virginia. Cucumber and Company has been an integral part of this event since it’s inception five years ago. Here at Cucumber and Company we look at this show as a showcase of what we are capable of. We handle this operation from top, to bottom. Weeks in advance we begin taking pictures, and producing videos of the ‘Stars’ and their choreographers for social media posts and Intro Videos for the night of the show. We even design and maintain the website from which all the voting and donations are made. And that’s all BEFORE the show starts… We lit the entire Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center with mood uplighting, not to mention enough lasers and lights around the dance floor to make John Travolta jealous! Then we brought in enough Speakers and Audio Equipment for a broadway show to make sure we could keep it funky. We setup 4 cameras and a portable video switcher to direct the show live, switching between the cameras and video segments on the fly. We even live streamed the Red Carpet, with Oscars Style interviews before the event. With a full crew of seasoned live production professionals, the show runs smoothly, everyone has a great time, all for a great cause.
