Canada 150 London: Sesquifest


To help the city of London, Ontario celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, the downtown core was transformed into a festival celebrating our great country and it's cultural diversity.

5 Days filled with music, activities, food with the centrepiece being the Sesquidome, a 360 degree viewing experience that truly must be experienced.

Hired to cover the event over 5 days, and present daily morning recap videos, our videos to help promote the festival had an audience of over 40,000 in 5 days. 

We contracted Platero Visual to capture SesquiFest, which ran for 5-days in celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of confederation in downtown London, Ontario. Edward and his team were always at the ready to capture the various activations of the event. We received our daily recap videos first thing each subsequent morning (like clockwork), and were always pleased with the quality. It was also fun to have Platero Visual capture our closing night Sloan concert in 360-degree video, which did very well for us on social media. At every step of the way, Platero Visual was professional, efficient, and ready to work. We would (and do) continue to recommend their services.
