2020 National Book Awards

We produced the first all-online National Book Awards, including distanced, live, in-studio production of host segments; live feeds from over 25 speakers and finalists located around the world; live award reveals, and multiple pre-recorded segments. We partnered closely with the National Book Foundation team to develop and refine the run of show, and collaborated with their video editor and graphic design team to integrate all creative assets into a tightly paced show. We provided all live talent with advance prep to improve framing, composition, and audio/video quality, including shipping custom equipment drop kits to boost production values for high profile speakers.
