Public radio station WBUR held its 12th annual gala the other night, and several hundred supporters turned out to celebrate the partnership between NPR & WBUR. AVFX helped make the evening fabulous and fitting by staging the event in support of WBUR’s creative direction.
AVFX technical Director, Fred White, and his expert crew delivered HD video projection, theatrical lighting and engineered audio. In addition to the A/V staging AVFX managed the camera work highlighting the guests of honor and focusing on the major bidders during the live auction.
The program included onstage interviews with On Point host Tom Ashbrook, talking with special guest Kelly McEvers of NPR; Here & Now‘s Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson, with special guests Susan Stamberg of NPR; and Only A Game with Bill Littlefield, marking its 20th anniversary with a special live show featuring Charlie Pierce and Celtics legend Jo Jo White.
