On Thursday, May 21st, 5:00 – 6:00 pm EST, the Harvard Innovation Labs presented the 2020 President’s Innovation Challenge Awards Ceremony celebrating this year’s finalist teams through an immersive, interactive virtual awards experience focused on the better future that is to come.

Our client was MASARY Studios who created a custom video stream system, bespoke animation, and AI interpretations of the Harvard iLAB’s Icon visual language, original sound composition, and a simple stage design in order to produce the virtual event with a directed cadence.

President’s Innovation Challenge Awards Ceremony Was Produced by Masary Studios.

Teams from across Harvard’s 13 schools who are working at the intersections of science, medicine, technology, society, and culture to develop solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. 25 student and alumni teams showcased their highly-anticipated ventures, as the new Executive Director Matt Segneri announced the winners.

Thank you AVFX.

“Your team were excellent production partners. We fully appreciated the “A team” on-site, redundant planning, nimble problem solving, calm and focused energy, and of course the quality of production.

We are grateful to be able to do work in these strange times, both supporting the presenter and event, but also each other. As producers, artists, technologists, and more that revolve around live events and experiences.”
