The Innovation Awards were a large scale, annual series of gala events celebrating—and awarding—luminaries in business, technology, health care, academics, science, and research. The final ceremony was presented on a massive 70-foot screen before an audience of some 1500 people. As the event was of a large scale, it required a substantial media presence. The awards themselves totalled over $10 million.
The showpiece of the ceremony were the 10 mini-documentaries, one for each of the recipients. These pieces introduced the great minds to the audience, explaining their often esoteric work in a way that was entertaining and educational. The provision of an ultra-wide 70-foot screen allowed for breathtaking visuals that suited the character of the event; one of awe, and inspiration.
The project ran the gamut of pre-production and scheduling, scriptwriting, to shooting—including with steadicam—and effects supervision, to post production motion, titles, editing, and colour.
