Garth Brooks

Country Music Awards

Rutt Video produced the video wall behind Garth Brooks when he performed live in Times Square. The performance, for the annual Country Music Awards broadcast on CBS, was a tribute to his friend Chris LeDoux who had recently passed away after battling a rare form of cancer.

A thirty foot high LED video wall was constructed in the shape of an urban skyline. The video for the wall was placed on a backdrop of a New York office building, created from photos shot out of the Rutt Video edit room windows.

The Rutt Video Time Square segment was switched live into the awards program originating from Madison Square Garden, and then broadcast over the CBS Network where it was viewed by over thirty million people.

World's First Interactive Theatrical Motion Picture

Produced by Interfile

Rutt Video edited the worlds first interactive theatrical motion picture, produced by Interfile and released in 42 Lowes theaters between 1993 and 1995. These theaters were specially equipped with custom designed pistol grips at each seat, each of these has three buttons allowing the viewer to control the content of the film.

During specific points in the film, onscreen icons, accompanies by the illuminated buttons in the postal grip, would prompt the viewer to make a choice between three scenarios. Majority rule controlled the plot, and no two movies ever played exactly the same. This didn’t have quite the same impact on Hollywood as the invention of talking pictures, but it was the first!







Trade Show Attraction

 

The visitor steps in front of the display, looks at themselves on the screen, and taps the Take Picture button to capture their image. They are then presented with an array of disguises they can try on to hide their identity. When they are satisfied that not even their mother would recognize them they press a button and an ID card is printed out with their new name and disguised photo.

While initially used in trade shows, it may also find applications in museums allowing children to become anything from cave dwellers to astronauts. It can print out in a multitude of formats and send content as email and to web pages.

Federal Writers' Project

Interactive Exhibit

Working with the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., Rutt Video & Interactive produced the exhibit Born in Slavery: Slave Narratives from the Federal Writers’ Project.

This exhibit contains more than 2,300 first-person accounts of slavery, over 500 photographs and three audio recordings of former slaves.

These narratives were collected in the 1930s as part of the Federal Writers’ Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). They were microfilmed in 1941 and assembled as the seventeen-volume Slave Narratives: A Folk History of Slavery in the United States from Interviews with Former Slaves.

This entire body of work, over 10,000 documents, is made available in this exhibit that includes a searchable database of the complete text of all of the narratives.

J. Walter Thompson

Art of Advertising

J. Walter Thompson, the world’s oldest advertising agency, wanted an exhibit on the history of advertising. It was to consist of twelve old style television sets showing an array of vintage commercials, interspersed with contemporary commentary on the world of advertising.

As the televisions they planned to use were in varying state of disrepair, we need dot find a reliable solution to deliver quality images on the twelve screens. To accomplish this we used three flat screen displays positioned behind the television set facade. Then, using our Flame graphic system, we produced a composite program for each flat screen that positioned the twelve synchronized video programs exactly behind their respective television faceplates.

The exhibit is shown here at The Museum of Television and Radio in New York city.
