As an event emcee & corporate entertainer, I would like to dedicate this blog post to all the fabulous photographers & videographers out there who work tirelessly, night after night, making sure all events are recorded for posterity.
You guys are so hard working, capturing all the excitement, entertainment & enthusiasm of the parties and events for all to enjoy for years to come.
I know you’re not appreciated as much as you should be, but the professional way you go about your job – capturing every angle of the event emcees, show hosts, performers and the audience is remarkable. You never getting in the way of the MC, the audience, the entertainer or their performance – wow, that’s a real skill! Don’t think it goes unappreciated.
PHOTOS THAT CAPTURED THE EVENTFUL MOMENT
I’m including a few photos and videos on this blog post that were either sent to me directly by the photographers or videographers, or the event companies that hosted the event, Jiggee (M) Sdn Bhd, Trilogy Events and Fusion Works Sdn Bhd (our industry professionals). I’m also lucky to have a few friends in the audiences of some of the event emceeing I’ve done as a Singapore or Malaysian emcee, and they have also been kind enough to email them to me.
FANTASIES COME TRUE FOR SINGAPORE SHOW HOST FOR AECOM DINNER AND DANCE
I’ve blogged about this event, but I did not have these photos. Luckily, they were kindly sent to me by my friend who works for Aecom. These are a few of my favourites.
This one is exactly what I mean when I say the photographers & videographers capture the moment. It all happens in a split second, but they’re there….right on the dot! One of the lucky guys from the audience who was a winner in one of the games, not only gets a nice prize, but he gets a super special prize by way of kisses from all us girls – all the other guys in the audience will definitely be envious of this shot!
This is the male winner of the Best Dressed competition. He came as ‘Edward Scissorhands’ and I really think this is one of the most remarkable costumes I’ve ever seen. I checked with him & his ‘scissorhands’ were hand made. It was an incredible costume, as you can see from this amazing photo.
This is the female winner of the Best Dressed competition. She came as ‘Corpse Bride’, and again, this is one of the most imaginative, inventive costumes that, as a event emcee in Singapore, I’ve ever seen. Once again, beautifully captured in HD by our talented team of photographers & videographers.
BACK TO SCHOOL NEVER ROCKED SO GOOD AT AN ANNUAL DINNER
The ‘Back to School’ themes is one of my favourite, whether as an event emcee in Singapore or a corporate entertainer, because it has to be one of the most playful themes. Not only do we get to relive our school days, but we get to dress up and play with all the naughty school mates. Naturally, representing the ‘teacher’ I get to have the most fun. I get to terrify the audience with my ‘cane’, no to mention all the lessons I’m going to teach them….NOT! As you can see from the pictures, the photographer was not playing ‘hooky’ from school – in fact he was so on the ball, he deserves an A+ on his report card.
VENICE MARDI GRAS THEME COMES ALIVE FOR EVENT MC
When a client chooses a ‘Masquerade’ theme for the night, it conjures up thoughts of opulent balls in Venice, with ladies dressed in beautiful brocade gowns, & gentlemen dressed in the finery of the 17th & 18th century. Of course there is always the hint of mystery – who is hiding behind the mask? Only when they come off, is all revealed. Revealing the intricacies of a fabulous night was, naturally the visual wizards taking the pictures and videos.
BEAUTIFUL BALLROOMS FULL OF ELEGANCE AND GLAMOUR
I know how lucky I am to get to work as an event MC and especially as a female emcee, and singer. Once in a while, I get to perform for really large audiences celebrating a special milestone in the companies career. On these nights, all the stops are pulled out, and no expense is spared. This was one such night. Not only did we have the luxury of the very best photography & videography, but we also had guys manning flying cranes with mobile cameras, so that every fantastic angle of the ballroom and the audience could be captured. There’s only one word I have to say for this….Captivating!
So, as an emcee, performer & show host, this blog is my tribute to all the hard working behind the scenes people who make events so special. This blog is especially dedicated to the wonderful photographers & videographers. Thank you so much for the wonderful images you capture for us, they are truly works of art.
But the real thanks must go to all the wonderful event companies that do such a fabulous job in executing remarkable, memorable & creative events, especially Jiggee (M) Sdn Bhd, Trilogy Events and Fusion Works Sdn Bhd.
