No Budget Film Festival 2015

The 6th annual NBFF was held at The Gallery Theatre at Barnsdall Art Park in Los Angeles. This park sits right across the skyline from Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood Sign, creating a beautiful space overlooking the city.

“The No Budget Film Festival (NBFF) challenged filmmakers to free themselves from arguably the most frustrating aspect of filmmaking—raising money. So, what do filmmakers do without a budget? They get creative and really resourceful” -cARTel

cARTel: Collaborative Arts Los Angeles is a Multimedia Production Company which creates accessible and immersive events to champion the development of exceptional artists. To sum it up, they put on some of the city’s most unique events for artists.

We used Green Screen technology in our photo booth to display the Blair Witch Project Woods backdrop behind festival attendees. The Blair Witch Project is a independent film shot on a low budget that turned into a box office smash, grossing over 248 million worldwide! The Blair Witch Project’s crew are just one of many supporters of NBFF Film Festival. Lots of spooky Halloween themed props helped add to the photo booth fun. Check out pictures from the NBFF Film Festival at this link.

The Top Photobooth Poses

When the camera focuses in some people feel awkward having their picture taken, others revel in the spotlight and attention a camera brings. Below are The Top Photobooth Poses so next time you are in the spotlight you wont be caught off guard.

PicMonkey Collage

The Miley CyrusThis  former Disney princess turned rebellious pop star has become synonymous with sticking her tongue out in photos. While not the most flattering pose it says “I know how to have fun” while also giving a “I don’t really care how I look” vibe.  Its a good pose choice if you have had a bit too much of the punch and want to show everyone how awesome you are. 

KimThe Kim Kardashian– Kim is famous for being in front of the camera. She usually reverts to her oh so popular “Selfie Pout”. She is a selfie pro and the Lemme Take a Selfie song was probably written for her. When you aren’t feeling oh so fabulous when you are in front of the camera just do the “Selfie Pout” and you will find your confidence level rise.   

The Sorority Girl- A whole separate post could be written about various poses that happen when groups of girls get together. I sorwill name all these posses with the title “The Sorority Girl” for sake of remembering them. Gravity seems to weigh on sorority girls a tad bit harder and the Sorority Squat is a common practice when posing for photos, why stand when you can squat and look smaller? The Elbow Pop is another common go to pose of the sorority girl. It shows off her tan and athletic arms, her envy worthy jewelry and her amazing side profile. 

 

Last but not least when it doubt throw up a random hand sign, the Peace sign is always a safe bet.

 

 

 

 

Santa Monica Grand Tasting 2015

SnapFiesta welcomed summer in Los Angeles, on the Santa Monica Pier, for The Santa Monica Grand Tasting!  A delicious two day event, featuring Chefs like Eddie G and Susan Feniger, both Chefs whipping up tempting and savory dishes along with many other yummy vendors.

The event, put on by Barcelona Enterprises , raised funds for  The Chill Foundation. Chill LA has served over 1,000 underserved youth across Los Angeles, building self-esteem through board sports.

A few guests loved our props so much they left with wigs from our booth. I’m sure they were the highlight of whatever after party they were attending afterwards.

As the ultimate prop, SnapFiesta acquired the new BMW i8 in our photo booth. Now that’s exciting!

Check out pictures from the event at THIS link.

Puppychella!

Dog lovers rejoice because you can also bring your dogs with you to Puppychella! Dog vendors like Healthy Spot are all around the festival grounds. It wouldn’t be a great festival without delicious food! Brokechella had a wide array of options, from tacos to pudding trucks. I ended up scarfing down some tacos from Hang 10 Tacos Trucks.

Dutch Party & Smoke Season were a couple of my favorite bands to watch. There is also live art performances: Artist Felicia Khong, aka feliFRESH, was onsite painting a music-themed mural. Lots of sweet vendors were insight like Beautiful Things LA and many more. We cannot wait to see what Brokechella has in store for 2016!
