We worked with the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law to produce their 2021 virtual fundraising gala and awards ceremony.

TrimTab Media & our partners at Girl Friday Events worked with the Brennan Center for Justice’s communications & development team to plan the run-of-show for their upcoming gala, schedule and produce several in-person shoots in New York and Washington, D.C. using our COVID-safe production protocols. Our production team captured in-person and remote recordings of the event’s emcee, board members, keynote speakers & sponsor messages. We also produced several feature segments to demonstrate the impact of their work.

Our editorial team designed motion graphics, worked with our composer partner on the score, edited the 35-minute program together, color-corrected and mixed the audio with feedback and support from the client’s event team. On the day of the event, we provided full technical support and live-streaming services for the Brennan Center’s pre-gala VIP program and the gala itself, providing audience members with a live-chat function during the event.

The Gala was live-streamed on November 16, 2021 and helped the Brennan Center raise funding to support their work to reform, revitalize, and defend our country’s systems of democracy and justice. We were honored to partner with them on this event, and are proud to support their work.
