Ellen Show Live

About this Project

Ellen DeGeneres blazed into Sydney in 2013, and broadcast her show to a live audience from Fleet Steps at The Botanical Gardens. Tri-Point was asked to provide an underwater scaffold to support contestants for her game show ‘Know or Go’. When members of the audience got a question wrong, Ellen released a trap door, and the contestants were dunked into the water at Sydney Harbour.

Using barges, underwater divers, a shark spotter, and our event style scaffolding with alloy box truss bridging the pieces, the Tri-Point crew, headed up by director Warren Jones, had a great time building the gag, and watching as the surprised contestants got dripping wet!
