7th Annual Shorty Awards
The Shorty Awards, which honor the best people and organizations on social media, were looking to bring their production to the broadcast quality it deserved. For the 7th Annual Shortys, we designed and produced a cohesive creative vision. We capitalized on their signature logo, color scheme and brand assets to create a more upscale and better branded event. With over 700 guests attending, I booked Rachel Dratch of SNL-fame to host and Panic! at the Disco to debut their now-hit-song "Hallelujah" for the first time live on the Shorty Stage.
I also produced, booked and directed the opening video featuring Rachel Dratch with a special appearance from Alec Baldwin. You can watch that by clicking the button below.
