THE AWARDS


DURING LOCKDOWN: How we created our first virtual award ceremony


How did the Relocate team, with video producer Leigh Emmerson, and contributors from around the globe, create one of the world’s first high-energy, entertaining and groundbreaking virtual awards ceremonies?


F


iona Murchie spoke to Leigh Emmerson, an experienced video producer, who worked with the Relocate Global team to turn the Relocate Awards ceremony into a virtual experience as a result of the restrictions caused by the


COVID-19 pandemic. Fiona and Relocate’s challenge to Leigh was, “Can we still have the ceremony and still have the excitement and shared experience of the live event but without breaking any social distancing rules?” Leigh’s company Persistence of Vision (POV) had worked with Relocate Global on previous video projects including the Festival of Global People and the Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony in 2019 but this was a whole new challenge. Discover how the Virtual Relocate Awards broke new ground and the collaboration of a video producer, professional broadcaster and the exuberance and resilience of the global cast of sponsors, supporters, judges and winners rose to the challenge to showcase the global mobility and international management sector at its collaborative best.


FIONA MURCHIE, MANAGING EDITOR OF RELOCATE GLOBAL AND RELOCATE MAGAZINE POSED THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:


Q A


How has the Virtual Relocate Awards Ceremony pushed the boundary for you as a video producer/director?


Leigh: Although I work in the creative industry I actually have an engineering degree and I love solving problems


so when you asked me how we could do the awards this year, I relished the challenge and having to think out of the box. It was an opportunity to pull together a number of skills and techniques I already had and create a bespoke solution for this event. I do feel we have been trailblazers with this project. No one has done anything quite like this before because before the pandemic no one needed to.
