The Outcome

NEWSUBSTANCE designed a large, sculpted Candy Crush Bear working to a clear brief from Jack Morton. Achieving the scenic detail on the Bear and candies was critical in safeguarding brand integrity. Working alongside multiple departments we provided an effective interface solution with the scaffold tower used to raise the Bear as well as robust internal platforms for the lighting department to illuminate the structure.

Our live team oversaw a smooth load in, tests and rehearsals before enjoying the best seat in the house as the giant, illuminated Candy Crush Bear proudly raised itself up and sailed down the Thames and through Tower Bridge!
