THAT WAS THE WEEK THAT WAS…
1 International Award
The first week of June 2016 was a “first” for Eclipse. Our team created big screen videos and video content for a major Gala for the McGill University Goodman Cancer Research Centre in Montreal whilst simultaneously producing all the video content for the Weizmann Global Gathering in London. In addition to these 2 very large events we also created videos for major fundraising events here in Montreal for the Jewish General Hospital and MADA.
In total, our team produced over 26 full videos, and almost 250 animations and other video production elements for these 4 events.
We also handled the onsite playback and coordination of almost all the video content.
The London team, headed by Neil Oakshott, included Ari Grunzeweig, Miguel Gutierrez and Marc-Andre Lavoie, whilst Anna Romatowska ran the Montreal shows with Mahan Moghtadai and Jonathan Abenhaim. Way to go team!
Thanks also to a strong team of freelance directors, animators and editors who helped make this all happen.
The venues were spectacular: A great set-up at the Complexe Desjardins here in Montreal with Total Events, beautiful installations at the IET (RedfoxLive/Technical Hire) and the Natural History Museum (Blitz/RedfoxLive) in London and a truly epic installation at the Guildhall (Technical Hire/RedfoxLive) where the incredible arched-screen and “Harry Potter-esque” use of empty alcoves for projection mapping created but two of the many “wows” of the week.
All in all, a truly incredible, successful 3 days!
On behalf of the entire Eclipse team I would like to thank all of our clients who gave us the opportunity to work with them on these incredible projects. Special thanks to Sheridan Gould of Weizmann UK, Kelly Avidan at the Weizmann Institute, Shterna Pinson at MADA, Ilan Gewurz of Proment Corporation, Annette Goldman and Stephanie Roza at the JGH and Annette Novak from McGill for their willingness to let us go with our ideas. It was a pleasure working with you and your colleagues.
And finally, the video “Out of this World” that we produced for a major fundraising Gala for the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine at the Grand Cru event in Toronto last October has just won top prize in the “Fundraising” category at the 2016 Telly Awards.
So there you have it…the week that was…Out of this World!
