My Role:
Art Director,
Video Editor,

The Downtown Dubai New Year’s Eve Gala, is a dazzling never-before-seen show of fireworks, LED light and laser beam displays, and also the world’s most-watched New Year’s Eve spectacle.

The event was live streamed on, with four different camera angles including an aerial view from three drones which were introduced this year, for the complete effect. Additionally, live feeds of the event were telecast over major international channels reaching billions of people around the world.

For this project we decided to go by customize and build an interactive youtube channel and a Mobile website to reach Tablet and Mobile users so they can also have the option to see the Event´s live feed, switch between camera angles or just sit and relax watching the celebration.
