The stars aligned both on the red carpet and for event designer Billy Butchkavitz at this year’s HBO Golden Globes after party at the Beverly Hilton. This was the 75th Anniversary of the awards, a milestone marked by diamonds. Fusing the facets of diamonds with rich golden tones, accented with orchid, was the perfect visual Billy chose on a night all about Hollywood glitz and glam.
Our LD Curt Stahl worked with Billy to shine light on this multi-faceted design. Walls draped in sumptuous gold fabric were bright with uplighting, a textured gobo projected over the entire area added another layer of pure gold to the event, and carefully focused spots on the dining pavilion highlighted an artistic mobile sculpture centerpiece as well as art along the proscenium edge itself. Lending a moving element to the entire design was a wall featuring the video map talents of Bart Kresa. In all, all the elements of the Golden Globes after party added up to a gem of an event!
