LONDON – For one of the first times ever, Guinness World Records has departed its London HQ, and gone out “on the road” with its Officially Amazing Science Live! show.

M4 Entertainment, Producers of Brainiac Live! and Science Museum Live On Tour, are producing the 12-week tour which spans the length and breadth of the UK, exploring the best, the worst, the weirdest and the most unbreakable world records ever attempted in a new, live extravaganza.

XL Events, working with M4 Entertainment, supplies projection and audio with XL Events Director Rich Rowley acting as sound designer and AV programmer,  with projection and audio control operated by Ashley Illman.

The shows use a Barco CLM 10 projector to display animations created by ‘Pixelkid’ Paddy Cannon.

Rich Rowley, comments: “Having worked on The Big Bang Fair and Brainiac Live previously for M4 Entertainment, it’s always a pleasure to work with Mark Thompson and the team.”

Mark Thompson, executive producer and writer and director of Guinness World Records says, “Working with Rich and XL always ensures that we receive a top level, hassle free service and gain a team of experts who care about the delivery of the final product.

“Rich and his team deliver the technical and creative AV elements of the show, as well as bringing a higher level of service and ‘the personal touch.’ Combining years of experience within their field, a team built up from all areas of events and technical backgrounds, new top of the range equipment and most importantly, a family mentality – there’s no better partner to have on a production.”
