Doesn’t the Spinnaker team scrub up well?! This October we all donned our finest cocktail party grabs for the 2016 Screen International Screen Awards where we rubbed shoulders with the elite of the UK’s cinema industry, who had gathered together to honour another fantastic year of film on the big screen.
It was our first year in attendance and we were thrilled to be there as finalists in the Creative Agency of the year – AV category, selected for all the exciting work we’ve been doing with Sony Pictures Releasing over the past 12 months.
The food was excellent – popcorn soup (strange but true, and tasty!) followed by a melt in the mouth slow cooked beef with mash. Finished off with a beautiful looking pastel pud, although in truth at this point we all wished we’d gone for the gluten free option when Rich’s chocolate ganache came out!
Hosted by the lovely Edith Bowman the awards got off to a swinging start, we saw some excellent wins for Disney and 20th Century Fox. Although we were disappointed not to get our chance to meet Edith on the winner’s podium, we were thrilled to be there celebrating cinema, and the teams that work so hard to keep the UK industry fresh interesting, and most importantly get the bums on seats.
Cheers to all that were nominated and the wonderful world of the silver screen!
