Photo Novelty Entertainment That’s Also A Party Favor!

As we move into holiday season your list of party planning ‘to dos’ can get longer and longer. But no worries, we have a solution! Check (√) entertainment AND check (√) party favors both off your list by bringing in a photo novelty activity from Amusement Masters!

Photo novelties bring memory making moments to events that guests can take with them…here, there, and everywhere! With this type of entertainment our team will take your guests picture during a live photo shoot – that image is then incorporated into an activity or product in another fun way. We have a long list of fun, creative and innovative photo novelty options that can be customized for any type of event and for all-ages.

Wondering how to keep a group of 13-year-olds entertained? Book an open-air green screen photo booth! Or wondering how to engage your brand with a group of partying adult conference-goers? Book our Virtual Graffiti Wall or Brain Art booth! From grand to small and intimate, we have a party novelty out there for all tastes. Here are just a few of our favorites – 

GREEN SCREEN PHOTOS
The Amusement Masters’ digital photo studio with green screen background is easily set up on-site for an event. Individuals, couples, or small groups can pose for a close-up in front of the camera and within minutes have their photo printed and placed into a novelty frame. With our green screen we can customize the background to fit your event theme or company’s brand message. This entertainment and party favor option is great for bar and bat mitzvah parties, birthdays, holiday parties and corporate branding events. 

Green Screen

HALOSHOT 360º PHOTOS
Not your average photobooth, this photo novelty is set up in a closed 8×8 foot area that includes a 360º camera suspended from the ceiling of the booth. Groups enter and within seconds, a complete 360º snapshot is taken of the entire group. Our special software then flattens the image and produces a 5″ x 7″ photo that’s printed onsite. The background can be customized with logos or other backgrounds giving your guests a great souvenir from the event!

DANCE HEADS
If you’re looking for engagement at your party…you’ll have a line to this one! Dance Heads is an amusement that superimposes participants’ heads onto professional dancers’ bodies while they lip sync to some of the greatest pop hits of all time. The mesmerizing effect is then completed with fully animated backgrounds that again can be customized for your event. Up to three guests at a time can lip sync to the song while their animated bodies dance to the music. Within minutes, guests receive up to three DVD copies of their performance. We can even custom the labels on the DVDs for you to bring more ROI to your branding efforts!

VIRTUAL GRAFFITI WALL
The Amusement Master’s Virtual Graffiti wall is most definitely unique entertainment, interactive and produces a really cool photo party favor. The screen allows event guests to interact and add ‘graffiti’ to a green screened photo of themselves. When adding ‘virtual’ graffiti to the screen guests use the special infrared spray paint cans to virtually draw on their own photos or custom background and make giant works of art. Each creation is printed as a 5″ x 7″ photo that includes a custom footer for your event. The virtual graffiti wall is perfect where you want to add an interactive activity to your event or to your tradeshow booth.

Virtual Graffiti Wall

BRAIN ART
Our newest, and most innovative photo novelty addition to date is Brain Art! This is a creativity base activity, where guests use their own brain waves to create unique pieces of art. Just as an artist decides on a general direction for their imagery before creating their masterpiece, so does your party guest when choosing their art’s style and colors. Once created, guests pick their favorites, coordinate with a room décor in their home, or just go with how they feel on that day. How fun is it that each person at your event could walk away with a printed piece of art that’s from their own personal ‘brain storming’ session!

Brain Art

PHOTO FLIP BOOKS
Who doesn’t want to see their photo in print! With our Photo Flip Books your guests can step up to the booth (with props of course!) and take a seven second video, solo or with a group. Our equipment takes freeze framed imagery that’s then printed onsite and formatted into a tiny book within minutes. Guests receive the unique take-away of their own animated photo flip book as a memory of the event. We can even customize the book covers to your theme or company branding! 

Flipbooks

Do you remember the saying “take a picture…it’ll last longer”? It’s so true! Take a picture at your next event with one of our photo novelty activities and you’ll see that the memory of your event DOES last longer!

Amusement Masters Comes Alive At ISES Live!

In August the Amusement Masters‘ team brought our love of event entertainment and team building to the 2015 ISES Live industry conference. Produced by the International Special Events Society, the annual conference was held this year in one of our favorite cities, New Orleans. We absolutely love New Orleans and our clients in this city – how can you not love producing events where centuries of old architecture is your backdrop!

For any event professional that hasn’t attended an ISES Live conference, you’re missing out. This education event was created to deliver an experience with stimulating industry ideas and promote knowledge sharing with other creative professionals from around the world. Attendees of this 3-day event literally come from all over the globe – many attended that we’re proud to now call friends and a few, clients.

DEAR WORLD, THANK YOU!
The opening session for the conference this year was speaker Jonah Evans of the Dear World project. Dear World unites people through their distinct message-on-skin portraits that are shared worldwide. ISES Live attendees were asked during the morning session to write a short message that mattered to them on their body and be photographed to share their story. We were honored to be a secondary part of this activity, by giving attendees the opportunity to do the same with a custom Amusement Masters’ screen-printed t-shirt. 

Our Live Screen Printing booth started the process for attendees where they selected their shirt t-design and then watched it be printed live. Once printed they could then write their Dear World message onto the shirt. For more than an hour, attendees stepped up to experience our Screen Printing Live booth – we loved engaging with each and everyone of them! Not only did the screen printing booth allow for team engagement and bonding, but it gave every attendee a keepsake that will live on long after the conference has ended.

SPONSORS AS SWEET AS COTTON CANDY
Amusement Masters was also given the opportunity to bring our newest sweet treat, Gigi’s Gourmet Cotton Candy, to ISES Live’s Sponsor Appreciation Reception. Held at the colorful and quintessential New Orleans venue, Mardi Gras World, we had the perfect backdrop for serving 100 of ISES Live’s most important guests…their conference sponsors! From witnessing smile after smile we had proof positive that they enjoyed our cotton candy made in a wide variety of flavors and made from air-spun organic evaporated cane juice, using only 100% all-natural flavors and colors. A cotton candy station was perfect for incorporating into this event…and perfect for holiday parties, wedding receptions, bar and bat mitzvah celebrations and more. We were thrilled that ISES Live let us share our enthusiasm about cotton candy with their VIP!

Team Building Games with Amusement Masters

One of our absolute favorite types of events to provide games for are the ones that build team synergy! Watching a  group come together to overcome obstacles and achieve a goal is super satisfying. Team building activities can have such a positive impact for a team. Communicating in new ways within the group allows members to learn new strengths and gain insights about the people they work with. This gives each individual the opportunity to show their dedication to achieve the team’s goal. We feel the best part about team building activities is getting employees outside the monotony of their work. You engage with them in a fun way, making them feel valued.

Below we are a few of our client’s favorite Amusement Masters games for team building activities:

JUMBO GAMES 

Our GIANT TOWER GAME is a classic that’s now larger than life. Working together, taking turns removing each block, each team can continue to build the tower until it topples. We love that each team must work together or it’s timber for the tower!

Jenga

 

Our 18 foot JUMBO FOOSBALL table accommodates up to 16 foosball players at one time! Competitively play against 8 opposing players, making sure to pass the ball down the long table to score a goal. Whether your team is in defense or offense, each member plays an important role in winning the game where communication is a must!

Corporate Foosball

 

 

Playing our JUMBO CHECKERS AND CHESS games bring a team together by challenging the opposition’s wits through classic board games, now blown up to epic proportions. Create a strategy, implement that against the other team and win the game!

COMBAT GAMES 

Relay your way across our inflatable OBSTACLE COURSES  that are perfect for team engagement. Constructing the proper race order and matching up with the opponent makes this ‘race for the win’ game great for ensuring that teams learn to work together!

We Played At Eventeract!

This Spring we were honored to be a major sponsor for the Eventeract conference in it’s inaugural year. Produced by the Georgia Chapter Meeting Planners Association (GaMPI), the conference was geared towards engaging the meeting and special events planner. The partnership was win-win; it gave Amusement Masters the opportunity to showcase to an audience of planners and it gave attendees two days of play that enhanced the learning experience.

On both conference days Amusement Masters maintained a booth on the expo floor. This gave us an ideal space for meeting with attendees and giving them a small taste of our game and amusement inventory. Our booth was Western inspired and featured the Wild West Quick Draw, our Western Shootout arcade game and our newest game, “Hit The Hero.” The decor was straight from the Wild West with western fencing and barrel decor items. We even brought in comfortable leather seating for guests looking to kick back and take a load-off as they made their way through the expo.

On the first evening of the conference we placed games throughout the conference’s signature fundraiser “The Gathering.” The event theme was “Back to the 80’s.” We loved this theme because it opened the door to bring in a variety of 1980’s Arcade Games and Pinball Machines, our Classic Strip Photo Booth and our new 2014 Instagram Interactive Booth. All in all, Amusement Masters helped keep the 80’s vibe alive that night.

About Eventeract:

World Water Day – Games CAN Make A Difference!

Did you know that the world’s second biggest killer of children is together, unclean water and poor sanitation?

For more than 20 years countries around the world have observed World Water Day on March 22. It’s scary, but the United Nations estimates that by 2030 parts of the planet could be tapped out of water suitable for consumption. Currently close to half of all people in developing countries suffer, at any given time, from a health problem caused by water and sanitation deficits.

What can we do, you ask? At Amusement Masters we believe that our passion for games CAN make a difference. We’re proud to announce that we’re an active participant in the Safe 2 SERV project – a SERV International initiative currently deploying up to 100 water filtration systems annually throughout the world. Through this initiative something as simple as $65 can provide water for a family of five for up to ten years!

In promoting the Safe 2 SERV project we’ve developed a way for communities, corporate teams and schools to adopt this initiative and have fun doing it. For less than the cost of booking a team building game or scavenger hunt with Amusement Masters you can book a Safe 2 SERV kit. For a nominal fee you can purchase water filtration buckets that your organization decorates with inspiring messages and that SERV International distributes to communities in need.

A recent successful use of our Safe 2 SERV kit was for the University of Florida who purchased a kits for their charity night of “Gators Give Back.” Fourteen bucket kits were beautifully decorated and returned for distribution around the world to provide clean drinking water for fourteen families…for the next ten years. We love that SERV International has made global change personal and we’re proud to be part of this movement!

For more details on how your group can make a difference by booking a Safe 2 SERV kit contact Amusement Masters’ Kelly Smink at KSmink@amusementmasters.com / www.AmusementMasters.com.
