UBCP/ACTRA Awards Gala
The First Annual UBCP/ACTRA Awards gala took place on November 24th at the CBC Studios, and it was certainly a night to remember. The team at Casting Workbook was excited to take part, and honoured to be sponsors. The night was full of fun and glamour, and a completely flawless show. Host Ellie Harvey was at her best, and her humour and talents made the night flow smoothly with lots of laughs and surprises.
We were especially thrilled to watch the mid-show skit that gave us a shout out. It was a complete surprise and we felt it was a beautifully creative way to mention the sponsors of the event. The song performed by the beautiful and talented Beverley Elliott gave a perfect account of the BC film industry with a flare of humour. What a talented industry we have here.
To help the night flow, the show featured a ‘live’ twitter feed with humorous anectodes about the awards, and constant Skype interruptions by those not in attendance. And as you can expect from actors, those skype calls were always quite the experience.
Congratulations to the winners of the night!
