Over the last few days, members of the BuzzMob team have been hard at work making the trek to Los Angeles’s landmark, Mann’s Chinese Theater, where BuzzMob is a social media partner at the 2012 AFI Film Festival.
As the official app of the AFI Film festival for 2011, BuzzMob was successful with expanding AFI’s on-site social media coverage. This year, the festival invited us back to create an attendee photo experience second-to-none!
Each day the AFI Film Festival presented a Gala Screening, made up predominantly of world film premieres. This year’s film standouts included “Hitchcock”, “Life of Pi”, and the debut of Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated “Lincoln”.
As one of the few movie festivals that provides free movie screening tickets to the public, The AFI Film Festival is known for connecting fans and celebs in a one of a kind event setting, complete with a red carpet entrance, introductions from the filmmakers and actors, and an exclusive after-party at the nearby Roosevelt Hotel.
In partnership with a fantastic AFI sponsor, New Amsterdam Spirits, BuzzMob created and developed a fully interactive digital photo booth for the Roosevelt ballroom, complete with real-time sharing and display on the HUGE 30ft screen in the ballroom. Through BuzzMob’s mobile application, attendees were able to view and share their event photos in real-time with their friends, bringing a new, exclusive dynamic to the event!
Throughout the AFI film festival, we watched as a sea of attendees, filmmakers, and celebrities used BuzzMob to share photos and messages from the event. Over ___ attendees participated in BuzzMob’s formal photo-op, and we had a blast showing off some of our exciting new event technologies and features!
We can’t wait to show you what we have in store over the next few months!
