Variety Magazine's Asian Star of the Year Awards
On Sunday, April 28, 2013 Variety Magazine & Commerce Casino hosted their first annual awards show for The Asian Star of the Year Awards at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, CA . We had a blast helping them with the event lighting, and technical production elements of the award show. We especially love working with event planner Heber Siqueiros Design who had an amazing vision for this event.
Guests arrived to Champagne Creative Group‘s living carpet. Instead of a typical boring red carpet they choose to go with a orange carpet that flowed off of a beautiful lady down the hallway. Around the corner was a step & repeat for the stars to get their press photos and interviews. On the orange carpet out to the terrace we showcased the sponsors names in lights. Commerce Casino has a wonderful roof terrace. Champagne Creative blew us away again with a human chandelier dressed in traditional Asian clothing and crystal chandelier looking strings flowing down around her. Guest enjoyed wonderful appetizers from Commerce Casinos renowned chiefs.
Stars, guests, and press made their way into the grand ballroom that we transformed with stunning event lighting & decor. Doyle from My Flower Guy did an amazing job on the centerpieces with an array of beautiful orange and yellow flowers. The set designer wanted the stage to be very “Organic” with trees and lights.
Li BingBing was awarded the Asian Star of The Year for 2013. She most recently stared in Resident Evil: Retribution.
After the award the band Meiko who just released a CD worldwide and played on stage at the Commerce Casino. Meiko’s music video matched the set design on stage. See the music video here:
After Meiko’s performance everyone went outside to Commerce Casino’s Terrace for a after party, as well as to enjoy the casinos.
