BNL were delighted to supply audio-visual and graphic design support for the Pride of Craigavon Awards 2015. Having fulfilled this role during the last Pride of Craigavon, we know how special this event was, recognising all of the hard work of community groups and organisations in making Craigavon a happier, safer and more fulfilled Community.  As one of the last big events before the transition into the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, it was was a privilege to help make this a night to remember for all attending.

On the run-up to the event we worked closely with the Community Development team in CBC to make sure that we could make this event run as smoothly as possible, all the way from initial recruitment of nominees through branded posters, application forms and promotional videos. The ‘Oscar’ feel to the branding went down a treat when making every guest feel like a VIP and this was consistent as we designed the menu, programme and table plan.
Our team produced audio-visuals to backdrop the entire event, incorporating motion graphics, upbeat music, and videos for every highly commended and winning group on the night, showcasing photos and footage of their ongoing work in the community with a scripted voiceover to make sure that their successes were highlighted to those watching.
BNL were delighted to be working with Siobhan McGarry (Downtown Radio Presenter and proud Lurgan lady) on producing a flowing script and running order that was perfectly queued alongside effective lighting, spotlights, confetti canons and smoke machines (working alongside our friends at Loft Sound.)
Furthermore, we were excited to make a highlights video for the event and were filming throughout the day as the event room was so beautifully set up with candelabras, chair covers, oscar statues and a red carpet. Basing ourselves at the Civic centre all day, we were sure not to miss a moment and continued interviews and cutaways from special guests, nominees, and winners throughout the evening- capturing immediate reactions of delight and pride amongst the guests. Oh, and we can’t finish this post without mentioning that the red carpet was also celebrating the premiere of BNL using a new piece of equipment, the DJI Ronin, our arms were aching but it was worth it for the unique shots we’re proud to include in this edit!
