X05 - Day 0 Setup

Here's some behind the scenes shot from X05 the day before the event. Our main job today was to "push" builds of our games onto Xbox 360 hard drives in preparation for distribution in the numerous areas where the games would be shown. We were housed in a large building that doubles as a concert hall and is the source for many of the interesting industrial photos on the main page of Amsterdam photos.

I had an "all access" badge so I snuck some shots of other halls undergoing their transformation. It's AMAZING how much gets done 24 hrs before a show starts. You wonder how it all comes together! A lot of hard working men and women with very little sleep :-)
