Rio preparing for Reveillon

Monday, December 7, 2009

FiveCurrents is working hard to prepare for Reveillon 2010, the New Year’s celebration on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro. The annual event, produced by FiveCurrents, is gaining national headlines.

O Globo recently ran an article entitled “The Olympic Effect” in which the paper stated, “For the first time ever there will be an international press room at Reveillon to accommodate all the requests from Foreign Journalists (CNN, Reuters, Deutsche Welle, etc), according to RioTur (Tourism Department of Rio de Janeiro).  They attribute this to the fact that Rio de Janeiro will be the host city for the 2016 Olympic Games, and to the new interest in the fireworks show, being produced by Scott Givens (President of FiveCurrents, and Director of Reveillon).

FiveCurrents recently completed work on Rio de Janeiro’s successful bid to host the Olympic Games in 2016.

This year Reveillon will feature a fireworks spectacular synchronized to a custom soundtrack that will be broadcast along the beach and telecast on Globo TV around the world. In addition, FiveCurrents has added 3 stages along Copacabana Beach to provide more entertainment to the millions of people gathered to celebrate the New Year.

FiveCurrents, the creative and production firm that produced the ceremonies of the Rio 2007 Pan American Games, today announced that they are producing Reveillon 2010. When two million people gather on Copacabana Beach to ring in the New Year, they will experience the first Reveillon of a new decade and one of the largest celebrations on the planet.

“We are proud and honored that we were chosen to produce Reveillon 2010,” said Scott Givens, president of FiveCurrents. “In 2010, we will revolutionize the way Cariocas celebrate the New Year with new event conception and design, a custom-designed fireworks show with an integrated sound system and music synchronization, and sophisticated audio, revolutionary stage design, and a new broadcast and simulcast design.”

Reveillon 2010 will feature headline talent, and satellite stages to distribute the party along the beach. The celebration will feature a fully integrated audio system along the length of Copacabana Beach, and a revolutionary fireworks spectacular synchronized to music. The Main Stage will be set to deliver an iconic image with the famed Sugarloaf Mountain as a backdrop.

FiveCurrents was the Executive Producer for Rio 2016’s recent successful Olympic bid, responsible for producing the IOC Evaluation Commission’s visit to Rio, and all presentations, videos and creative support for the campaign. Chairman of NBC Universal Sports & Olympics Dick Ebersol said of the final presentation in Copenhagen in October, “Rio’s presentation was the best I have seen in 20 years.”

FiveCurrents is also pleased to announce that they have opened FiveCurrents Produções Criativas in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.
