Super Bowl XL
Harry D. Akers - Lighting Director
I was honored to be chosen by NFL Films and The NFL Network to be their Lighting Director for a number of their broadcasts for
Super Bowl XL, and Light Works, Inc. was chosen to supply the Lights, Grip, and Electric equipment.
When it was all over, we looked back and realized we had done the complete lighting for:
“Media Day” at Ford Field, - NFL Films “Playbook
Show” at Cobo Hall, - a couple of the NFL Films “Total Access Show”(s) at Cobo Hall, - The NFL Network “Pre-Game Show” on Ford
Field, - The NFL Network “Broadcast Booth” for the broadcast of the game at Ford Field, - The NFL Network “Post-Game Show” on
Ford Field, - The NFL Network “Interview area #6 on the field” on Ford Field, - The NFL Network “Interview area outside the locker
room” at Ford Field, - The ITV Network from Great Britain “Broadcast Booth” at Ford Field, - The TV2 Network from Denmark “Broadcast
Booth” at Ford Field, - The ARD Network from Germany “Broadcast Booth” at Ford Field - and The Televisa Network from Mexico “Broadcast
Booth” at Ford Field.
It was hectic with so much to do and every show (or episode or commercial break, etc.) had a critical timeline with drop-dead live
broadcast feeds, but we never missed one, and everyone loved it.
