Mariners Inn’s River Rhythm Gala at Motor City Casino

Hey guys, this week we wanted to share an event we did at The Soundboard at Motor City Casino in Detroit.  The event was for Mariner’s Inn, a shelter and treatment center for the homeless.  It is such a great organization that helps men and their families that are affected by substance abuse.

This was our second time doing green screen pictures for this wonderful event and we couldn’t have had a more fun time with it.  We did personalized pictures for their Gatsby themed event that was a hit for every guest that did it and got to take a picture home with them. We can’t wait to come back next year to help such an amazing cause, please make sure to visit Mariner’s Inn on their website to learn more about what they do and how you can help!

Here’s a few picture from the green screen:)

If you remember my post from the spring,  We  provided 5th3rd Bank with a fun green screen photo booth experience at the Pre-ride Expo for the participants  and Fans of the annual  River Bank Run in Grand Rapids MI. We had fun (digitally) placing  the attendees at the starting line, the finish line and odd places on the course,  Well they loved the response from the participants so when they decided to become sponsors of the grueling Ice Man Cometh Mountain bike race up in Traverse City MI They want us to recreate the experience for the Bike riders. I was up for the challenge, We had a lot of laughs and so did the those watching in the exhibition Hall.

Pacer and 76ers fans spilled in when the horn blew at 6 pm. Partnered with Xfinity and Starz we provided free event photos to fans. The line grew long and we captured over 60 families and individuals in the first hour and a half. Fans posed in front of our green screen and we transferred them to a balcony overlooking Atlanta, Georgia where Starz’s hit show Survivor’s Remorse was filmed. The event was a success and we want to thank Xfinity and Starz for a fun night!
