The Cancer Institute of Montreal is well-known not only for their life-saving contributions to cancer research, but for their immersive fundraising events. Most recently, they hosted a family reunion inspired by the Addams Family. Our team was thrilled to join in the fun by doing what we love as a way to give back to the Montreal community and support cancer research.
Costumed guests arrived to find the venue, a former church, transformed into a gothic manor with the magic of multimedia. We left no corner of the space untouched by the ‘host’ family’s comically macabre personality. We even used the church’s organ for a dramatic multimedia surprise to announce Uncle Fester’s arrival.
The team’s proudest contribution to the night was the portrait gallery, where after having their photo taken, guests appeared as members of the family. The light of a floating candle brought the portraits briefly to life as it floated by. Each guest got to take home their portrait too, a keepsake and a fun social media moment. Because the effects are customizable, this photo experience is one of our most popular activations; this ‘family reunion’ was the perfect occasion to bring it out!
