  • Philadelphia Film Festival Opening Night Party 2014!

    Can you believe the opening night of the Philadelphia Film Festival was already a week ago!? They say time flies when you’re having fun and we are proof of that! The Nouveau Image team has been working diligently to produce all of this year’s events for the Philadelphia Film Society’s 23rd annual Film Festival.   We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank everyone who came out and made the night all that it was (if you missed opening night, don’t fret because the huge closing night event is set for 10/24/2014 at 10pm, click here for more details on that).

    The Perelman Theatre was selected for opening night screening. The Film Society selected to open the festival with Philadelphia’s s premiere of Birdman, staring Michael Keaton and Edward Norton; a bold, black comedy from director Alejandro G. Iñárritu, that shines a light directly back on the film industry. Unfortunately for festival goers, there were several technical difficulties with the theater and viewers were redirected to the Prince Theatre down the street for their showing. This caused a delay for both the screening and the party.  Because of the dent in scheduling, the Kimmel Center and Garces catering were gracious enough to keep the opening night gala going past the end time. Who doesn’t love an extend party!

    The Nouveau Image produced the event for 400 guests. Guests were able to enjoy  the iconic views of city hall as they over looked the broad street balcony on the 2nd floor of Kimmel Center.  There was both live music as well as a DJ, light bites catered by Garces Group, and sponsored bars that featured Stella Artois, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Dock Street Beer and Spodee Wine.

    The TNI Team also created a custom Photobooth experience with a plethora of custom made props. Guests had the opportunity to select from the bounty of masks, mustaches, and other film themed props to make their Photo Booth experience a memorable one.  This wasn’t your typical photo booth, our events team selected the newest technology in photo and social media sharing, FOTOfwd.  This interactive and experiential technology allowed guests to take pictures with their personal phones, allowing full creative freedoms and once the image was then posted on any social media outlet utilizing the hashtag #PFF23, guests were able to get a print out a branded sticker from a customized kiosk of the photos taken. This was made possible by a partial in kind donation from the technology creator, Jim Hopper. FOTOfwd is the first social media printer that connects with Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to deliver you your photos in minutes! Check out some photos of our team here at The Nouveau Image and guests from the party!

                Yelp Reviews:

    1)     It was an awesome experience and I felt the prices weren’t too bad! I drove 4-5 hrs from ct. The lines to the attractions were long but once in your either gonna get scared or have a nervous breakdown like my ex did cause the 2 things she hated was clowns and chainsaws! I’m planning on going again but with more friends so I hope they get scared lol.

    2)    Absolutely crazy scary!
    This place is huge.  4 big attractions.  But with that comes the big lines.  The first attraction had a like a 3 hour wait.  But after that, we moved pretty fast.  But it was getting disheartening.  We had a blast though.  All of the attractions were so freaking scary.  I’ve been to a few haunted houses before but this one was incredible.  Definitely the best one I have been to thus far.
    Although it is pricey (42$ a person) it was well worth it.  Great time.

      

    Eastern State Penitentiary:

    Terror Behind The Walls

                Eastern State Penitentiary being ranked a hefty 5/5 proves to be one of the scariest  haunted attractions in Philadelphia. With the infirmary, Night Watch and Lock down, just 3 of the 6 attractions listed, this haunted prison will be sure to open up fears from within that you didn’t event expect to have!

    Yelp Reviews:

    1)    I don’t scare easily but I found myself hiding in a corner at several points during the exhibit. They scare you from the time you are standing outside up until the end of the exhibit. They had a guy hiding in the grass (wearing a grass covered suit) and a guy who snuck up behind you.  The terrifying thing about this exhibit is that the actors get really close to you. Like as close as they can get without touching you. It really catches you off guard. It is worth the experience. I went once but probably wouldn’t put myself through that again, lol.  Keep an eye out for groupons and living social deals to save a few bucks.

    2)    I must say that this haunted house Was very well done! There was a lot of work and planning put into this attraction.  This year  the theme was from the video game zombie U! There were plenty of times where scary creatures jumped out from the abyss and I almost soiled myself at least twice!  Which hardly ever happens! Lol
    This is also a great idea when your looking to take a lady out and want to do something a little different! I still have bruises on my arm from her clinging to dear life. But for that night I was her valiant knight in shining armor!
    Now there are a lot of people that go to this and u do have to wait in line.  But they do have times tickets. So if u buy a ticket for 1130 then show up at 1129 and u will minimize the time standing in line!  All I can say is a good time was had by all!!!

     

    Jasons Woods: 

    Jasons Woods

                Although Jason’s woods is not the highest on the rank scale (2 out of 5), this attraction has a lot to offer. Being one of the most interactive haunted parks including Carnival of Fear, Lost in the Woods, and Chamber of Horrors, the thrills don’t just come and go. Finishing the terrifying tour off with a haunted hayride, guests will always remember the fear distilled in them from this haunted attraction.

                Yelp Reviews:

    1)    Wasn’t too bad. Paid 40 bucks for 6 attractions. The hayride was an absolute JOKE, hardly any actors and very limited scares. Clown carnival was pretty fun, not too many actors but you got lost a few times before finding your way out. Zombie portion was OK, pretty cool special effects. Other attractions were mediocre w limited scares. I gave an extra star bc the actors that were there gave a legit effort in trying to provide screams and staff was very nice. Will not be back.

    2) I grew up coming here but haven’t been in the past few years. I was very excited to go back. I wonder if it’s under new management or something because this past trip very different than what I remember. Sad to say, Jason’s woods was a complete let down.

     

    Six Flags Fright Fest:

    Fright Fest

                Ranked a solid 3 out of 5 stars, this event features family-friendly “thrills by day,” while an amped-up “fright by night” will deliver more scare zones, terror trails and haunted mazes plus nearly 200 zombies and Halloween-themed shows and attractions.  Once the clock strikes six the midways become full of the living dead, ready to scare the pants off of anyone who dares to cross their path so come prepared!

                Yelp Reviews: 

    1) I had a pretty great time here. I have to give it to them, considering I am under the impression that most of the staff are probably getting paid around minimum wage, they’re all really friendly. The operators have to say the same thing over and over, but some of them were really enthusiastic every time they said the same darn thing. Also for Fright Fest — although it is an extra charge on top of your ticket — I think it’s well deserved. They did a great job. The make-up is so well done, do they have movie make up artists doing it? Seriously, really impressive. Also in one of the houses, the lady was legit hanging on a wall, we were staring at her.. def thought she was fake, and then she jumped off and started crawling backwards .. amazing. They put a lot of effort into it, and I appreciate that lots!

    2) Went for Freight Fest for the 1st time. It was amazing. Fun. Lots of teens but still lots of fun. It was definitely worth paying for the trails and haunted mansions. I actually want to go back before Halloween. I suggest purchasing your tickets online (b/c it’s cheaper) and look for a promotional code if you can. Using a promo code can cut the tickets in half.
    Freight Fest starts at 6pm and ends when the park closes at 10pm. Get there as soon as you can.

    Bates Motel: 

    Bates Motel

                The Haunted Hayride is a 25 minute, action packed, heart pounding ride through the dark forest of Arasapha Farm, located just outside of Philadelphia PA, and is filled with huge, detailed sets, giant monsters and more pyrotechnics than a Kiss concert. Rated 3 out of 5 stars, this attraction is waiting to scare you this year and bring that rating up (in the most terrifying way).

    Yelp Reviews:

    1)    It’s my first time of hayride with my brother, since last year we went as walk in haunted house, so we tried this one at 2012. It was worth it experience, the decoration was very professional, make you feel like you’re in the Disney world besides this is a haunted scene. I am not afraid of the dress up ghost, so when they jump on me I just ignore and laugh at them, so later they will not even try to scare me. But anyway, it’s a lots fun! if you like haunted house, I recommended this one!            

    2)    I LOVE BATES!!  My friends and I go every year.  In the past I’ve always been too afraid to go into the Motel, I would just do the Hayride and Corn Maze.  For the past two years I plucked up the courage and went in.  I was TERRIFIED but not disappointed!  The Hayride has the most amazing sets.  I think the person loading the wagon must have a headset and radio to the actors, because I was talking about what would creep me out the most while I was waiting in line and nearly every actor made a comment about it when they targeted me.  The Motel is decorated so thoroughly and there are actors EVERYWHERE.  So many startles!  And as usual, the Corn Maze was so scary.  One of my friends got to a set and almost turned around to leave instead of going through it.

    My only complaint is that they don’t space out groups enough when you’re walking through.  My friends and I were walking right behind another group, so all the actors and props were scaring the first group and we’d just see them all reset.  So we started walking slowly to give them time to get ahead of us, then started walking at a good pace, trying to actually look at and enjoy the sets, and we ended up with a huge group of people behind us.

    1)    The staff is great. The price of admission is very reasonable! It’s a lengthy attraction which I certainly appreciate because I feel that a lot of other attractions are a rip off. Thanks for scaring me again this year!

    2)    I went the other day because livingsocial was offering a deal and every year I go to Eastern State pen and I wanted to try something new this year. It was actually really good. This is a haunted walk through in a factory hence the name fright factory lol. The costumes were really good! The decorations were really good as well, you can tell they took their time in creating this attraction. The actors did a really good job, they kept walking with people who were scared. There is parking right next to the fright factory and street parking all around that is easy to find.

    1)    We’ve been making the rounds of the haunts this year and well, this place gets my top rating!  For 30 bucks (25 with a 5 dollar off coupon which is what we got) you get a haunted hay ride, plus 4 walk through attractions and a corn maze!  They really do it up and it is more than worth the drive from Philly.

    2)    Not just a Ride of Terror – this is a full NIGHT of Terror.  (I believe that’s the official name).  $35 gets you access to 6 attractions including four walkthrough houses, a haunted hay ride, and a corn maze.  I’d put this place above average for a large haunted attraction.  Pretty par for the course in that it’s not scary, but fun and well put together.

  • Event Highlight: An Evening with Bill Cosby

    An Evening With The Legendary Bill Cosby to benefit Temple Men’s Gymnastics

    On August 14, 2014 we were honored to get to the opportunity to organize an event to help save Temple University’s Men’s Gymnastics team by helping to plan, execute, and promote an amazing evening with the legendary Bill Cosby.

    The event was located at the Independence Visitor Center in Philadelphia. It started off with an hour-long cocktail party on the terrace that included, gymnastics inspired drinks sponsored by Jim Beam and hors d’oeuvres by Brulee Catering. Guest who held premium tickets also got to enjoy a meet and greet with Mr. Cosby and get their photo taken with him!

    Following the cocktail hour, the special performance began in the Ball Room. Mr. Bill Cosby spoke for a little over an hour about growing up in Philadelphia, his time at Temple University, and his experience with gymnastics, football and more. He even gave us a few laughs during his comedy act where he joked with the current gymnastics Coach, Fred Turoff.
