Opening night of the movie premiere needed to be perfect and I was in charge of setting up the details.
- It was my first solo party and I wanted every detail to be perfect.
The movie premiere was an indy film about a boy that can control the snow and the wind. I wanted to incorporate ice into the party theme, but keeping a large space cool enough for ice was a tremendous problem. My boss tried to talk me out of the idea, but I knew I could pull it off with the right equipment. In order to keep the entire event space cold, we rented two commercial chillers. The commercial chillers arrived by semi truck. They were set up to remove heat from inside the building. My boss didn’t think the commercial chillers would work, but they did. I also rented an ice machine from the same equipment rental company. They provide all the materials to make snow, the ice machine, and the commercial chillers. The bill was huge, but the party was a giant success. The producer of the film was so impressed by our theme and attention to detail that he hired us to work on the next three films. They will be released over the next month. Each movie presents unique party planning challenges. One film is set in the future. The entire party will be in total darkness. The second movie is set on the sun. The third movie is a biopic documentary about an english boy growing up in 1915 Siberia, Russia.
