The Oscars 2019 - No host? No problem!

by Admin | Mar 12, 2019 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

We love awards season, and not just because we get to trawl through best-dressed segments across all the news outlets. It’s a great way for us to get some inspiration for our projects and see how others produce their shows. Perhaps the biggest controversy surrounding this year’s Oscars was the host, or lack thereof! A seemingly risky decision by show producers, and the result of Kevin Hart ste...

With the sad news that Karl Lagerfeld lost his battle with cancer last week, we’ve been looking back at some of the incredible fashion shows that were synonymous with the Chanel brand. Known for creating unique and impressive sets, Lagerfeld always blew us away with the intricate detail of his vision, and the way in which he transformed his designs for Chanel into reality. Lagerfeld’s extraor...

If like us, you saw the Fyre Festival documentary on Netflix this weekend recounting the lies, failings and false advertising of a luxury event experience, it’ll have been a hot topic of discussion in your office this week. No one can forget the carnage that ensued following the catastrophic failings of the festival organisers in 2017, and we all smiled wryly at the ironic role social media play...

Coming into Sledge every Friday always puts an extra spring in my step. Not only is it guaranteed that I will be sneakily fed extra treats from under people desks (when mum isn’t looking), I also get all the attention I could possibly want! 2018 was a year of learning new skills for me, and although at first I was cautious not to become a circus dog, I just couldn’t resist my favourite sausag...

I thought long and hard about what my Sledge Story of 2018 should be, and there were a few choices I could have chosen from. My Sledge highlight is an experience that was a little unexpected, but great fun. If you had told me in January of this year that by September, I would be completely devoted to 5 Red Admiral Butterflies, I wouldn’t have believed you. In saying that, I was so excited when...
