MB Productions(MBP) in association with Kingdom Entertainment and Empire Entertainment, was the video staging partner for the star-studded "Black Ball" event, a benefit for the Keep a Child Alive (KCA) organization, held at New York City‘s Hammerstein Ballroom in November.
At the annual fundraiser for AIDS-and poverty-stricken children in Africa, MBP produced a 15’ high x 20’ wide video screen utilizing a double-stacked Digital Projection HIGHlite 12000Dsx+ DLP Projector, Sony D50 SDI Camera Package, and Beta sp playback facilities. The whole show was recorded on (5) Sony DSR-1800 DV cam recorders. The screen displayed a seamless mix of live camera images, PowerPoint presentations, and a series of short films that showcased the works of KCA.
In addition, MBP's screen displayed videos that highlighted the major contributions of special honorees, and Grammy-award winning artist Alicia Keys, who serves as the charity's cofounder and ambassador, acted as concert director for the event.
