Would be fascinating to find out the breakdown . No trapdoors or holes , no fly wire system , no large props , no imposing stage construction , limited costumes…. They didn’t even have that much pyro . Are hiring drones really that expensive …. Or was a big chunk of it golden handshakes to the multiple creatives that left . I doubt if (including Paralympic Ceremonies and medal ceremonies for both Games) it came to more than US$25 mil. What did they pay Ballich? $300K might be fair. $500K would be too much for a consultant only. Drones were probably loaned on a deal with Intel. I say $25 mil is generous -- but if they really checked their expenses, might be closer to $17-18 mil. The big prop was the stage and the Cauldron. For the 2 cauldrons, I'd guess $2.75 mil. And they may be using the same for the Paras. They used the same one for Nagano for both sets of Games. BTW, those gauzy outfits of the Field Marshalls have been the tackiest to date. I don't know what they were supposed to be. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
