Warner Brothers Studio Tour: Gringott’s Launch Night

Warner Brothers Studio Tour: Gringott’s Launch Night 768 1024 LookLook

We are huge Harry Potter fans here at LOOKLOOK. Therefore, the news that they were adding a new extension and guests could use our GIF booth at the launch, was Ah-ma-zing!

If you haven’t already checked out the Making of Harry Potter tour then you are in for a treat.  For instance,  you can:

  • Board the Hogwarts Express;
  • Try your hand at lifting up your own broom – hands free of course,
  • And you get to walk down Diagon Alley.

The newest expansion is their biggest to date and was created by many of the crew that worked on the film. The grand banking hall is an exact replica of the film.  Similarly, it has marble pillars,  chandeliers and individual tellers desks.

GIF BOOTH FOR THE WIN

We were delighted when Warner Bro’s asked us to help promote the launch with our Gif booth.  Not only did we capture content from their opening night of Gringott’s.  but we could advise on the best possible tech solution for our client.

Our role was to capture Harry Potter GIFs as the press, influencers and VIP had the very first tour on the opening night.  GIFGIF was busy all night long, so busy in fact we had two units in different parts of the tour so no-one missed out.

Creating ultra-quick, fun, user-generated content is what we do.  We like to create a bespoke solution for each of our clients.  For this client we suggested adding an animated overlay to the frame to make the content more captivating.  You can see the shimmering gold in the text above and the stacking up of gold coins at the bottom of the frame, with the guests front and centre.

 

Now we hear there’s news of a studio tour set to open in 2020 for Game Of Thrones, we are all. ears.

Halloween – Let’s Get Spooky!

Halloween – Let’s Get Spooky! 1348 899 admin

Parties, Pumpkins, Fancy Dress and a great excuse to stuff your face with chocolate and jelly sweets…Halloween is (literally) bloody great!

Like those falling autumn leaves and the arrival of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, it’s the celebration that reminds us that summer is well and truly over and in no time at all, we’ll be donning our Bridget Jones style Christmas jumpers while downing too many mulled wines at the office Christmas party.

But Halloween hasn’t always been the holiday of plastic witch fingers and girls dressed as ‘sexy’ animals…

I'm A Mouse...Duh!

I’m A Mouse…Duh!

Halloween originates back to the Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts celebrated their new year on November 1st and this day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the border between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31st they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth – SPOOKY!

The beliefs, traditions and superstitions spread to America with the wave of Irish and Scottish immigrants in the 19th Century and slowly the Celtic ways of Halloween transformed into the Americanised version we know and love today – costumes, decorations and all!

Which Witch?!

Which Witch?!

Like the old Celts, LOOKLOOK recently took something over to the States…New York City to be precise! We were asked by US home décor giant, Grandin Road to supply a GIFGIF for their pop-up Halloween shop within world-famous department store Macy’s.
