A fortnight ago, three billion people watched as the world came together to witness the Opening Ceremony of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, and FiveCurrents is proud to have produced the most technically ambitious ceremony ever. They conclude the Sochi 2014 journey by producing the Olympic Closing Ceremony on 23 February.
FiveCurrents is called upon to deliver the most complex live events in the world, and is the premier creator of live productions having delivered the Olympic Ceremonies for its second consecutive Games on the heels of their work for London 2012.
"I am deeply honored that FiveCurrents was asked to serve as Executive Producer of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies by Russia’s Ceremonies Staging Agency,” said Scott Givens, Executive Producer of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Ceremonies and President of FiveCurrents. “Creating an Olympic Ceremony defines an image for a nation that lasts a lifetime. These spectaculars are shared experiences that span nations and ages. The world saw Russia’s distinct culture in its greatest glory during Sochi 2014; we are proud to have helped create a moment of national pride for the Russian nation.”
Working with Konstantin Ernst as the Chief Creative Director and Screenwriter, and Andrey Nasonovskiy, the CSA’s General Director, Scott assembled and led the team that blended the best of Russia with creative and production talents that represented the best of the world.
Andrey Nasonovskiy, General Director of Russia’s Ceremonies Staging Agency, added, "We are proud to bring Scott Givens and the FiveCurrents team on board as Executive Producers to collaborate with the Ceremonies Staging Agency in delivering the most ambitious and complex production ever; these ceremonies have set the standard for Olympic Ceremonies for the next 50 years.”
