West Australian of the Year Awards 2017

About

Celebrate WA is a Government agency dedicated to promoting the great state of Western Australia and organising some of the best events. They are the organisers behind the WA Day Festival and SOTA each year at Elizabeth Quay. The Western Australian of the Year Awards is their most important event every year. It celebrates the highest achievers among our people and rewards them with the accolades they deserve.

We were on hand to film the gala red carpet event.

 

Task

The Western Australian of the Year Awards gala dinner is a luxurious event. It brings together some very famous Perth identities and industry leaders. Our task was to film the entire event and showcase the individual award categories of Community, Aboriginal, Business, Arts & Culture, Professions, Sport, and Youth.

The entertainment at this annual event is always something to behold and this year was no exception.

Approach

Several cameras roamed the floor during the informal part of the proceedings and found all the action. During the awards ceremony we had two static cameras and a floating camera to follow the action of the winners making their way to the stage.

This meant that we covered every single inch of the event. The guests mingled and enjoyed the entertainment in between awards and the footage of this makes for entertaining viewing.

Result

The result is a fantastic event video that captures the excited mood and celebratory nature of the awards show. You can see several recognisable faces pop up in the footage and get a sense of what it’s like to attend this event.

Celebrate WA use this video to promote future years and to encourage people to buy their tickets and tables.
