LAI Video Wins a Big Apple!
Last night, LAI Video was recognized for Best Event Videography at the International Special Events Society New York Metro Chapter’s 2015 Big Apple Awards. Paying tribute to the very best in live event experiences, our team was honored for our work at the National Retail Federation’s 2014 BIG Show.
2014 BIG SHOW
Director + Cinematographer: James Favata
Co-Cinematographer: Rob Kramer
Producer: Tori Furphy
Co-Producer + Editor: James Loizou
Joining the BIG Show crew for the first time, Creative Director James Favata pulled out all of the stops for this milestone “recap” video. Together with co-cinematographer Rob Kramer, the two-man team captured an event that hosted over 30,000 attendees. From sliders and glide-cams to pocket-jibs and mono-podding, our third outting with the NRF featured some serious speciality shots that have since changed the way that we document live moments.
While quality photography is a must, only video can teleport viewers back in time. Through familiar sights and sounds, a well-produced piece stirs nostalgia with its audience and best preserves the memory of a perfect event.
