Last night a strong number of the MB crew headed down to the Glug Xmas special which was held at, believe it or not, Fabric. What followed was a pretty incredible production of an evening, cramming hundreds of industry types into the venue usually used for 3am dancing, for short films and screen grabs of renders instead, viewed at points through a haze of smoke and lasers. Not your usual design talk, then.
Pyrotechnics aside, an incredible line up of speakers were invited to speak including Airside, Anthony Burrill, Jason Bruges, Jason Tozer, Mr Bingo, Studio Output, Future Shorts, Mainframe, The Neighbourhood and of course… yours truly too. Thanks to Glug once more for inviting us to show our work, including recent client projects and our 3D printed chocolate advent calendar.
Other highlights from the evening were Mr Bingo hilarious, and very fitting, rap, Anthony Burrill’s ‘5 Stages of Rave’ (I think stage 4 was an all round favourite) and Airside’s last ever talk, which really had a sense of occasion as Alex Maclean had to fight the tears whilst praising his cherished team from over the years.
