40Under40 is an annual lighting event where lighting designers from around the world come together to celebrate the lighting industry and the spectacular designs that have been made. We were briefed to capture this event and interview the winners after they left the stage.
Creating a professional relationship with the client allowed us to gain the trust we needed to tackle capturing the event in the way we knew best. This allowed us to explore the venue before guests arrived and scout out the best places to shoot – thus allowing us to create an exciting and attractive event video.
Showing the excitement of the winners was something we wanted to put forward within the video, this is why we use our technical skills and chose to shoot the way we did and with that particular equipment, but doing so allowed us to really focus on the emotions of the winner without a distracting background.
This video was then used on online platforms to further celebrate the event and the winners from the evening!
