The Afrinolly Short Film Awards celebrates digital filmmakers of the African Diaspora, so it was important to us to design an event that also celebrated the African heritage. With decor, backdrops and lighting we created an ambience that resembled an African safari during sunset.
The show started with the opening verse of The Circle of Life from the Lion King sung by an energetic band. Beating drums and melodic voices welcomed guests as they took their seats.
With a room full of story tellers we knew we had to create an event sequence full of magical moments. Interchanging presentations of video montages, musical performances and speeches were cued in perfectly for the right flow.Food and beverages served included fresh palm wine, exotic cocktails and a selection of intercontinental dishes.
We had just as much fun executing the event as we did coming up with the event concept. Every element came to fruition.
