Events should be fun and exciting for all who attend, and often, the best ideas come in surprising ways. Recently, we did an event for Enseo, that would end up with a last minute change in plans. They were testing our skills and together we pulled it off without a hitch. We also discovered that a Game of Thrones photo booth in Minneapolis means fun for all who attend, whether it is a corporate event or not.
A Surprising Twist that Put Us to the Test
As a photoactivation company, we are always looking for fun ways to help our clients make their events fun while achieving their marketing agenda. When we first spoke to Enseo, they booked an open style booth for a party they had planned. They wanted to take advantage of the fact that people love to have photos taken if there is a cool photo op available. They wanted their logo put on it so that it could be shared on social media to raise brand awareness. We were happy to help.
The party would be held in Minneapolis during the HITEC conference. This is an easy one for us. An open style photo booth is typically a landscape photo of some type with the company logo on them in some way.
What a surprise when they called just a week and a half before the event to tell us some very exciting news. They wanted to add a fun prop – a real Game of Thrones throne!
The Challenges We Faced Head On
This Game of Thrones throne was amazing to see, but it did present some challenges for us. Instead of a landscape style booth, the throne looked better in the portrait orientation. Therefore, on short notice, we had to actually modify one of our booths to accommodate the prop our client chose for their corporate photo booth MN.
We put our heads together and decided that a single shot portrait was the way to go for this photo booth setup. However, the client also wanted to jazz it up a little. They wanted to add GIFs so that people could share short looping videos online. These gifs would have our client’s logo on them to provide additional brand awareness. This also posed a challenge because GIFs require 2-3 photos and our template had only one.
To solve this problem, we used a few tricks that we had up our sleeve. Our booth would take three photos. The first photo would be available to print. The three photos would go into the creation of the GIF, which could be shared on social media.
How It All Came Together
This corporate photo booth MN adventure was unexpected from beginning to end. It was a smashing success. Everyone loved using the prop. It isn’t every day that we get to touch a piece of “Game of Throne” memorabilia. To have the actual throne was outstanding and we are grateful to Enseo and HBO for giving us an opportunity to be a part of such a cool event!
