Snowmania 2017!

forandrewDSC_0003

This past weekend Orbital Talent helped bring an extra fun animation to the Alterna “Cracking up the Capital” Guiness world record attempt snowman building event at Snowmania in the Glebe.  Big thanks to Andrew Peck and the Glebe Business Improvement Area for backing and supporting the rebirth of the Snowboyz.

It all started about 15 years ago, when a good friend who shall remain nameless (Jesse Dryden), built a few living snowman characters in his living room for a contract for Winterlude.  Version 1.0 of the Snowboyz was born and within a few months melted from reality.

With a huge group effort, this February the Snowboyz version 2.0 was born! Thanks Kate M. for the quick snowman building! The Snowboyz sang, danced, joked, posed for pictures, and thanked sponsors at the Snowman building World Record Attempt at TD place on Saturday Februyary 11th, 2017.

Thanks Mayor Watson for Chilling with our Snowboyz in a few photos! Big thanks for everyone involved. Don’t miss some amazing comedy shows at this months’ Cracking up the Capital Comedy Festival.

We had an exciting night last week with some new friends at PureLogic IT.

They brought in our Instant Photos with Santa team for some fun at their Christmas open house office party. We rolled into their office kitchen, popped up an instant photo studio, Santa and Mrs Claus arrived – photos were snapped, Santa was kissed, little dogs were coddled, adored and photographed, photos were printed, snacks and drinks were had, and a good time was had by all.

Our photo-print tech even created a couple of amazing balloon creations for the kids. They kids left with Spiderman, ladybugs, and even an alien. One of the little three year old dudes even got talked out a meltdown while watching a lightning McQueen wrist-band balloon get created. Thanks PureLogic! Looking forward to working with you guys again soon!

Alice in Wonderland Installation at the Ottawa International Children’s Festival 2015

Flashback to last May 2015, where I (Brian R. Wilson) ended up literally down the rabbit hole with my crew of performers at the Ottawa International Children’s festival. We were putting on a show and Alice in Wonderland strolling performance installation with a crew of incredible performers, giant puppets, and a crowd of children.

Right beside our tent / performance space there was a huge inflatable walk-though installation by the http://www.architects-of-air.com/. This installation was incredible, walking through the inflatable felt like you’re on a different planet.

I ended up in the catacombs in the inflatable with my DSLR and the Mad Hatter Tea Party crew from Orbital Talent.  We were just missing Patrice and the catepillar in these shots.

Big thanks to the OICF for having us! We are looking forward to more fun next year!

What live performers can bring to YOUR event?

What live performers can bring to YOUR event?

Live performers can turn an event from something drab into a magical experience, and you can expect a great performer or set of performers to create a unique vibrant atmosphere. Your options are vast when it comes to live performers, and more and more people are sidestepping traditional acts such as live bands in favour of arguably more exciting options such as fire performers and troupes of magicians. The right live act can bring a real sense of electricity to your event and can make your evening go with a bang rather than a whimper.

Going the extra mile
Whether you’re putting on a corporate event for promotional purposes or simply wishing to reward your staff for their hard work, the benefits of live entertainment are numerous. If your business associates are attending your event, you can impress them with the amount of effort that has been put into your event. This shows that you are willing to go the extra mile to create something memorable and magnificent. Whilst putting on an event yourself can seem daunting, the help of a professional entertainments agency can be worth its weight in gold.

A seamless experience
A corporate events team can oversee every aspect of your event, and you can expect to have as big or small an influence on your event as you like. Most events are conceived with a brainstorming session. During a brainstorming session, a corporate events team will ask you if you have any ideas about the kind of event you wish to put on and whether you have any ideas about the kind of performers you are looking for. You can expect a great events team to take your ideas and bring them to reality in the most stunning manner possible, even if your initial ideas only seem sketchy on paper.

A powerful morale booster
One of the best aspects of corporate events is that they are fantastic for morale, and if you put the effort into rewarding your staff for the work they have done, they are more likely to want to stay with you and appreciate working for your company. The feel-good factor offered by a great event can linger around the workplace for long after the occasion has come to an end. A wonderful corporate event can also encourage staff members who don’t usually work together to get to know each other, making in-work morale levels soar.

Your chance to be creative
More and more businesses are turning their back on conventional or conservative types of live performance in order to offer something a little different that really grabs the attention of their guests.

No items found.

fire eaters, strolling magicians, or even las vegas showgirls are just a few examples of this approach. You may even wish to book various different performers for your event to create a truly epic spectacle. It’s a good idea to create a themed event to stop the live entertainment seeming incoherent or awkward. Event planners usually have a huge address book too, which means that they can identify the right talent for your event quickly and efficiently – and they’ll look after all the relevant paperwork on your behalf too.
