Highline Studios produced a couple of videos for FX Network to support the premiere of two of their flagship shows: Tyrant and American Horror Story (Season 4). FX partnered with Truffl, a private members only club, to create influencer and fan screening events for each premiere. Both events were food driven with entertainment and production design created to tie in with the storyline of their respective series.
The event for Tyrant took place at Acabar restaurant and lounge in West Hollywood and featured a fourteen course Middle Eastern feast conceived and prepared by chef Octavio Becerra. Throughout the bazaar-styled setting, guests were entertained by fire acrobats and belly dancers. Watch below for a taste of the evening:
The event for American Horror Story’s new season Freak Show was an even more lavish production for 200 guests, taking place at the historic Wilshire theatre The Ebell of Los Angeles. The decor and entertainment were tailored to the show’s carnival theme, and lined up perfectly for the pre-Halloween season: deviant, grotesque and intriguing. Fishnetted contortionists, snake handlers and freaky guys on stilts all mingled with the crowd over craft cocktails. The elaborate menu was created by Wolfgang Puck Catering and featured spectacular looking crab and lobster louie, uni cream noodles and rib eye. Guests dined at an oversized U-shaped table, as performers from Cirque Berzerk kept them entertained. Even the waiters got in on the Freak Show style for the evening.
