Buzzfeed Debate

Set in the heart of Facebook’s Brook Street offices, we transformed their 10th floor canteen into a live studio in 24 hours.

For Facebook’s Buzzfeed Brexit debate we took on the challenge of creating a stage set with a three-sided, tiered, audience gallery and two full TV gallery edit suites. Unlike some of the more traditional referendum debates, the event was aimed squarely at young voters, who had been signing up in their thousands to vote in the referendum at the time.

CREATION OF FULLY-EQUIPPED LIVE STUDIO

After each speaker, audience members were asked to press a button saying if they were “happy” or “sad”, giving a real time sense of the sentiment in the room.

With some of the top political speakers of the moment, from former PM David Cameron to Nicola Sturgeon and Nigel Farage, the discussion was undoubtedly lively and led to over 2.5 million viewers over the 4 hour live broadcast on a Sunday afternoon, with coverage across major UK press titles.

A FOUR HOUR LIVE BROADCAST WITH OVER 2.5 MILLION VIEWERS
