Chelmsford Calling for Olympic Torch Finale

Over the last two months, Paul Carpenter Films has been working on a special visual effects sequence to be shown during the Essex finale to the Olympic torch relay as part of Sparks Will Fly.  The thirty-second video sequence has a graphic theme based around Guglielmo Marconi, inventor of radio, and features a number of sports performers.

Chelmsford Council have commissioned theatre company Pinpoint Create to choreograph an energetic ten minute show celebrating the immense talent of local people. The show will take place on Friday 6 July in Hylands Park Chelmsford, with over 20,000 tickets already sold.

The show finale “Gold” has been specially written by talented composer, David Stanley (David Stanley Music) and will be performed on stage by actor and musical star Lee Mead. Our visual effects sequence will be shown during the final thirty seconds of the show finale.

Lee Mead will be headlining this specially created Chelmsford section of the Olympic Torch Relay evening celebration stage show which will open the celebrations in Hylands Park as the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay arrives in the city..

Lee’s performance will be part of a spectacular choreographed section featuring many performers and Chelmsford’s Sports Ambassadors – potential Olympians of the future. Audiences will be thrilled by a fast moving display of basketball moves, cheerleading, extreme biking and free gymnastics performed to a throbbing new soundtrack. There may even be an appearance from Chelmsford’s hero Marconi!

Paul Carpenter Films, Pinpoint Create, Lee Mead and all the local performers are delighted to support their home county of Essex and proud to be part of the amazing London 2012 Olympic celebrations in the UK.
