Sounds Commercial had the privilege of supplying full Event Management for the Wildscreen Panda Awards in 2018, at the Passenger Shed Bristol.
Our brief was to create an unforgettable and unique evening for the 800 guests attending, overseeing all aspects of the event including AV, content management, catering & delegates.
Our proposal for Wildscreen 2018 was to create an immersive experience, taking the guests on a journey throughout the evening by engaging each of their 5 senses.
Smell – Upon arrival, guests were greeted by the smell of woodland England in the Autumn as they entered the event through our moss installation. They enjoyed a glass of champagne in a 20m walkway lined with moss and recycled handmade wooden furniture.
Sight – Above the moss installation, guests looked up to see smoke and lasers creating an indoor flowing liquid sky.
Touch – The moss wall was beautifully textured and tactile.
Taste – In keeping with Wildscreen’s green credentials, catering was carefully selected, with all vegan and renewably sourced food. No single use plastics were used onsite for the duration of the event.
Hearing – Speaker placement was carefully plotted and mapped to create the best sound coverage for all guests, regardless of the location of their seat.
The prestigious awards ceremony was held at the end of a week-long festival held across Bristol.

Above the stage, we flew four jumbo screens with the latest HD projection to display the onscreen content in the highest resolution and show the winning documentaries in their finest light.
After the Awards Ceremony the seating was rearranged, and a complete redesign of the room ensured we were ready for an exciting and memorable afterparty:
