Our tuxes fresh from the dry cleaners, our white shirts crisply ironed and fuelled with probably one or too many martini’s, we headed down to the World Premiere of Spectre knowing we were in for a treat.
It was an event with a Royal magnitude, as stars were joined on the red carpet by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Price Harry. Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris were a few of the many cast in attendance to met the royal family before the premiere opened in London.
David Walliams, Susanna Reid and Rick Edwards presented the event in true 007 fashion providing the online audience with some fantastic interviews with the cast and crew. They even entered in true ’00’ fashion as they ‘borrowed’ James Bond’s 1951 Rolls Royce, which was actually used in the movie, to arrive at the premiere.
If you weren’t lucky enough to attend, or didn’t fancy waiting 3 days for a front row seat then you didn’t need to worry. Streaming Tank were invited to broadcast the premiere across 18 simultaneous streams spreading all over the globe. The unique event meant you could literally be any where and as long as you had an internet connection, you could view the live event and feel like you were taking part in the one of the biggest premieres the UK film industry has to offer.
The live broadcast took centre stage on YouTube.com, streaming directly into their masthead along with many other YouTube channels and streaming platforms. The event was extremely unique and made history by being the first Bond film to open in cinemas on the same day as its premiere.
Our Digital Producer Steve was on site producing the live stream saying“it’s probably one of the most exciting jobs of my career. I’m a James Bond fan and the anticipation here is unbelievable. Its amazing to know we’re responsible for showing the online world this event”.
Working with Sassy Films, who provided the brilliant direction of the event, Streaming Tank showcased how easy it is to reach the four corners of the Earth. We streamed to multiple YouTube channels, YouTube mastheads and multiple streaming platforms before leaving the event feeling proud to be apart of history, knowing we could Die Another Day.
