Once in a while we get the opportunity to plan special events which we love just as much as weddings. And it’s not often that we get to do something so out of the box.
Recently, Slant Six Games, a Vancouver Video Game company, hired DreamGroup to plan their Launch & Wrap party for their latest game, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. If you aren’t familiar with this hugely popular video game franchise it’s all about Zombies that have taken over.
The vision for this event was to create an environment where guests would basically be walking through Raccoon City…an abandoned city that had been overtaken by Zombies. We chose Performance Works to be the blank canvas!
And the result? Well, take a look at the photos…and just a warning that some of these are a little gory.
As guests arrived at the party zombies were shuffling about…
…and trying to “eat” the helpless
Luckily some of the heroes from the Video game were there to help protect the innocent guests
And guests enjoyed the T-virus cocktail through the Ice Luge (in the video game, the T-virus is what transforms people into zombies)…and by the end of the night…
…most of the guests had been Zombiefied by our special FX makeup artists provided by Mink Makeup
Tunes were playing all night long courtesy of DJ Rich and… The Paul Pigat Band
Guests experienced Vancouver Flipbook
where they acted out mini scenes with the Resident Zombies…
…Or they just relaxed and played the video game
When the guests entered this party they didn’t know what they were about to walk into but they totally got into the spirit!
“DreamGroup Productions knows how to create a phenomenal event! This super creative and highly organized team delivered the most memorable, fun and originally themed wrap party for the global release of our video game Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Every detail around the décor, entertainment and food & drinks had been so carefully researched and considered to produce an amazing zombie atmosphere in homage to our game. Behind all this seamless fun and entertainment is a slick team of efficient workers ensuring all logistics run like clockwork so all we had to do was enjoy the zombie cocktails and socialize. We would highly recommend this team for any of your event planning needs”
