LUNCH on the L-Train

On a lovely Sunday afternoon we hosted an elegant meal on the L-Train as it traveled from Manhattan to Brooklyn.

An exercise in creative logistic management and best practices in event production and media capture, our main goal was to create a unique piece of interactive culinary theater and translate it into a compelling piece of multimedia. We harnessed traditional and social media to tell that story around the world.


cOCKTails with Drones

An automated drone photo booth that can also make a cocktail.

Drones, robotics, and automated systems are quickly evolving into a canvas capturing people’s excitement. We set out to develop a series of experiences that demonstrated how to use automated robotics in entertaining and thought-provoking ways. 


INVENTIONAIRIES | esquire

In a video series featured across a wide variety of Hearst's publications telling the story of thought-provoking industry leaders, founder Michael Cirino promises to feed patrons well, as long as they promise to turn themselves over to his performance art-meets-culinary whims. 

 


100 Course Meal 

A logistics ballet of elegant food and drink

We believe that our art is logistics management and this piece was designed to demonstrate that in an unequivocal way.


What began as a satirical poke at the length of meals at the world’s best restaurants morphed into an outsized statement showcasing our creative direction, culinary execution, and experiential production.  With an expansive foundation for collaboration, we unearthed numerous opportunities to connect with local creative teams to bring their voices into event execution.


CALICANTO GALAS

Panamanian artist Miky Fabrega engaged us to create an annual series of gala events to encourage donations from high-net worth individuals to local non-governmental organizations.

This video is from the first year where we created a life-sized MONOPOLY board.

We designed the three annual events with Fabregas's team, each one a narrative journey taking the guests through an interactive theatrical experience.  Each year, the execution and storytelling expanded and with it so did the donations to the Calicanto Foundation.


125th BIRTHDAY OF PIZZA

To celebrate the 125th Birthday of PIZZA we threw a huge party and ordered a pizza from from every pizzeria in NY.

Partnered with Standard Creative. Made possible by Shock Top Brewing Co.

It is believed that pizza was created on June 11, 1889 by hero genius Raffaele Esposito. I emplore you to go forth now and celebrate!


SOTHEBY'S SPRING PREVIEW 

We curated a cocktail hour and multi course meal the previous evening at Sotheby’s where we interpreted the dialogue between Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary artists through food, drink, service, and decor. 

One bar came alive in a fauvist explosion of color and floral intensity. Where the second bar was stark and crisp expression through overwhelming text. 

The conversation continue to the design of the table and service of them. Each course take a moment to describe a piece, artist, or movement only to be subsumed by the next dish and the progress through history.

To celebrate the launch of the New York City office for and international digital marketing platform transported guests back to the 1980 in the Hip-Hop scene here in the New York. 

Break dancers, graffiti artists and gifts, custom neon signs, and Rev RUN!
