The annual Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur Awards are a showcase of the city’s most innovative and ambitious young business leaders who are turning their dreams into reality. This year, our creative director Linc Williams attended the 200-guest gala event at Jupiters Hotel and Casino. We were proud to see our friends at Evolve Skateboards take home the Trailblazer of the Year award.

Fotomedia was lucky enough to produce a short film showcasing some of the Top 5 contenders, to be screened on the night of the awards. The contenders, including Evolve Skateboards, 40/40 Creative, Cherry Blooms, The Village Markets, Justin Lane & Cavalier Bar, were interviewed in the popular restaurant setting of Etsu with stylized footage shot on location of each entrepreneur showcasing their business. Hero still images were shot and  split into layers. A subtle camera movement was used to achieve a 3D effect called parallax, where layers of the background and foreground in a photo are slightly moving.

The finished product is fun, fresh, innovative and exciting, and an inspiration to future entrepreneurs who want to follow their dreams of starting a business on the Gold Coast. Enjoy!
