ASIAN ACADEMY CREATIVE AWARDS APPOINTS OFFICIAL OUTSIDE BROADCAST PARTNER
SINGAPORE OCT 3, 2019.
The Asian Academy Creative Awards (AAA) is delighted to announce the appointment of Reality Rentals as its Official Outside Broadcast Supplier for 2019.
Malaysian-based Reality Rentals has over 36 years of top-level broadcast experience and will supply the OB facilities and key technical crew for this year’s Grand Awards and Gala Finals, to be staged in Singapore this coming December.
s,” said Reality Rental’s Paul Nash.
The AAA’s are set to announce new broadcast deals at a press conference in October but the man heading up the shows, Michael McKay, notes “having an international standard supplier in place is a critically important element of our broadcast plan”.
Reality Rentals have provided equipment and technical expertise for some of the largest productions in Asia such as MasterChef, The Amazing Race, Nomads, The Real World and the 60 camera mega- shoot Celebrity Car Wars among others.
“I’ve worked with Paul Nash and his team for around 20 years, we’ve raced around the world several times together and I’m not only thrilled that he is able to come on board this year but we’re already working together to see what new gear we can airlift in for the occasion” McKay said.
Fittingly for a ceremony that prides itself on being Asia-Pac’s most prestigious award for creative excellence, the broadcast draws crews from a number of countries around the region including Malaysia, Australia, China, Philippines and, of course, Singapore.
Emmy Award-winning producer-director, Michael McKay will executive produce this year’s broadcast and hinted the awards will have at least one host but says the jury is still out regarding a “host-free” ceremony in the future.
He also revealed that the Asian Academy Creative Awards will be staged as a theatre style ceremony, followed by after-parties, on both nights. “Two nights of after-parties might test the stamina of some but I think everybody’s up for it” he added.
The Asian Academy Creative Awards (AAA) is established by the Asian Academy Creative Awards Pte Ltd to serve the creative industries, as the pinnacle of their achievements in content creation and media production. Open to countries throughout the Asia Pacific region, the AAA honours excellence in craft and technical disciplines across multiple platforms, including television, digital, streaming and emerging technologies.
