I guess you could say producing events is a lot like producing a movie. Each event starts at the creative stages (script) and goes through the process of fine tuning (scene 5, take 27) and planning, (would you like two sugar or one with your coffee Mr. Clooney?) to ensure film goers get the perfect picture on the big screen. Just like setting any perfect scene, it's the creative tailoring and eye for detail that truly makes an event receive two thumbs up.
