Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, English actor Sam Claflin, and Irish actor Chris O’Dowd were amongst the celebrity guests who used The Flash Pack Multi Camera Bullet Rig at last night’s pre-eminent British GQ Men of the Year Awards. The 60 camera bullet rig allowed guests to create 270 degree ‘matrix’ style image of them frozen in action –which was then shared in real time on social media via the onsite social sharing stations enabling guests to share their videos immediately to social media.

Michelle Russell, events director, GQ said: “The Rig added a new element to the awards. It was very well received and helped us create even more buzz from the night via social media as the bullet rig videos were shared by guests using the event hashtag #GQAwards”

Jerome Mass, director The Flash Pack said: “The Rig was very well received – both on the night and on social media. The video footage of Emilia Clarke has already been viewed over two thousand times on the GQ Facebook page proving that the Rig creates very sharable and eye-catching content for any event.”

The Rig is available in a variety of sizes ranging from a full 360 degree rig complete with 100 cameras, to a mini ‘arc’ of just 10, suitable for events with limited space. This custom built technology fires the cameras simultaneously to capture the images and then stitches content together with branded video footage to create eye catching ‘frozen in time’ style moving content of the subject.

The GQ Men of the Year Awards took place at the Royal Opera House in central London. For footage and more images from the evening please go to the British GQ Facebook page.
