On Tuesday September 18th, we went to the Ritz Carleton for Bookstravaganza, an event that brings publishers and readers together. This is the event's first year and was put together by Chatelaine and Random House. 150 guests enjoyed 2 hours of cocktails, sweets, readings, books signings and videos that showcased Random House's upcoming Fall Slate.
Each of the 6 videos had its own genre: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Memoir, Food and Lifestyle, Movie and TV Tie-In and Mystery. Loading Doc started work on the videos in the middle of the summer, figuring out fun ways to show a stream of book covers and text for 1 to 2 minutes. It was a wonderful challenge for our team and we enjoyed seeing the finished result presented at the event.
We were at Bookstravaganza, not as guests, but filming coverage for a promotional video coming in the near future. The event was a huge success - everyone looked like they were having a great time. We're really looking forward to the next one!
