The Biggest Night in Hollywood

I should have posted this a long time ago but since it took so long to redo my website it took a bit longer than planned.

But here is a little flashback to the oscars 2015 and my coverage of Hollywoods biggest night.

I went on the red carpet to see how its all put together;

I also made a segment for TV2 Norway right before the stars went on the carpet

(This video is in Norwegian)

Before the big show we also got to go visit the designer of the Oscar envelope and cards. You would not believe the process to make that little thing. It is insane!

They have to make one for every nominee and the envelopes without the winner card..well they get destroyed! Who knew.

But don’t take it from me, when you can hear it from the designer himself, Marc Friedland.

(This segment is also made for TV2 Norway but the interview is in english)

Here is some fun facts about the making of the oscar envelope:
