BIZBASH AWARD FINALISTS FOR: BEST PRESS EVENT & BEST TV OR FILM PREMIERE EVENT
To make a global splash, we worked with Prime Video to redefine the red carpet experience with immersive, jaw-dropping Red Carpet journeys in each city. To win the hearts of Press, Talent, and Superfans, we drew from the deep wells of Tolkein heritage to create a unique experience in each city that represented different facets of Tolkien’s Middle Earth.Each premiere had its own identity that heroed the culture of the Middle Earth realms while also targeting and celebrating the unique cultures of LA, Mexico City, Mumbai, and London.
From the kick-off in LA, then moving on to Mexico City and Mumbai, to the finale, transforming London’s iconic Leicester Square, press, fans, talent and executives alike gave glowing reviews on their unique premiere experiences, the perfect introduction to this iconic televised series.
The extent to which these premieres “took over” each host city was a complete disruption to industry standards. In London for example, we transformed Leicester Square – an urban plaza – into a sea of lush vegetation with rivers, mountains, winding forest paths, and 40’ tall elven towers. From an immersive perspective, each red carpet set a new bar for what is possible for live experiences and Experiential Premieres.
