Behind The Scenes: The Holiday Reveal Party

You might think that get everything ready was a no-brainer, however, we put a lot of thought into presenting you with a splendid holiday party scene. If you have been with us for a while you know we’ve never done anything like this before. November 9, 2018, will go down in history as the first Facebook Live Holiday Reveal Party since CustomCat’s very beginning.

We hope that all your questions have been answered, if not we apologize, however, you can hop on over to check out our blog posts to learn about the products in more detail.

Actor

Santa AKA Mike

1. What are you know for? Turning coal into diamonds.

2. How did you feel about being chosen as “THE ONE”? I wasn’t surprised. I kept my eyes on the prize and trained hard my whole life.

3.  If Santa and Grinch got into a battle who would win? and why? Santa, of course. He kills him with kindness.

The Scene

Location / Set 

There were a couple of different rooms that we had the opportunity to choose from, however, there was only one that made sense to us.  The Brick Room. Brick walls are full of character so it was a no-brainer. 

Light & Sound  

There are many aspects that go into creating a visually appealing video – we are no experts but we tried our best. Lightning and sound were the main key factors that almost had us switch to a different location. We encountered various problems during our trial period, which to our hectic pre-holiday schedule, was the night before LOL. While we were checking the sound we experienced a loud echo. Ugh, filmmakers worst nightmare! Ain’t that right. The only way to get rid of the echo was either move the entire set elsewhere or hang a sheet over the area where the echo was coming from –  in our case it was the staircase. We opted out for the trap because we put so much time and effort into setting up the perfect scene.

Props Needed

Kudos goes to our fantastic creative team for getting everything ready in time. They did it all, from Canvas to Christmas tree ornaments. Every product had its own place and purpose. Thank you!

 

The fireplace Canvas was originally meant to be posted on a floor against the brick wall to stimulate the feeling of the actual fireplace, although many of us loved the idea we decided to put the fireplace on the wall instead. Simply because 3 wall-art pieces looked better than two!

Let’s not forget about the famous oh mighty Santa’s FUEl..
