Sunset Labs is an intimate waterfront venue located at the bottom of Herald Street in downtown Victoria. Over the last decade Sunset Labs has evolved from simple beginnings to its current state as a beautiful, high-tech, plug n play, multimedia venue.
Whether you’re wanting to screen your recent holiday to friends & family or debut a polished new international documentary to the whole community, Sunset Room is perfectly equipped for your needs. With a built-in box office for handling tickets & greeting guests, an array of projection & seating arrangements, coat check & concession services (popcorn!) & an amazing surround sound system, your screening will be fun, easy & successful!
One of the most common uses of the Sunset Room is for photo & video shoots. The physical adaptability of the space and our flexible availability (overnights, weekends, etc) allows your vision to flourish in front of the lens of one of our professional shooters. Whether what you’re looking for is capturing an event you are hosting at Sunset Room, filming your next music video, shooting a product catalogue or creating a bodypainted valentines portrait for your loved one – we can provide a photographer or videographer that will bring your project to life!
Not everyone has the time, interest, manpower or capacity to handle all the details of producing a great event. We do. Whether you simply need a dj or sound tech, or are working with a modest budget and a basic concept for 10 people, or a big-budget multi-venue sophisticated festival for thousands, we can foresee your needs and handle all the details big & small so that you don’t have to. Every event has at its heart an intended experience to fulfill on – we look forward to working with you to ensure your guests have an experience they won’t soon forget.
For many event producers, spreading the word before an event and even sharing it live during an event are vital elements to both the success of the event itself, and also to the larger development of the brand of your event, series, cause or production company. We can provide a full range of marketing & social media services before, during and after your function to build your audience and spread your message. From concept development right through to post-event email blasts, galleries & acknowledgements, we can help expand your reach, fulfill your marketing intentions and build your following.
For years Sunset has benefited from the broad array of design talent on the west coast – and you certainly can too. Internally, our designers work mostly on our event media – you can see some of the 2011 event posters at www.sunsetlabs.ca/events2011. From brochures & business cards, website imagery & wallpapers, event posters & product labels – our team can bring your vision to life – quickly and cost-effectively.
If you want to reach the biggest audience you can, you want to stream your event. Streaming breaks down the geographic and sometimes economic barriers to participation, ensuring your content / workshop / fashion show / what have you is available to the world at large – or a more specific piece of it, if you wish. We can help you create a polished multi-camera stream of your event, Hi-Def and web-ready. This opens a world of possibilities, from a simple single-camera stream of your dance performance, to a revenue-generating hi-level production of your next fee-based seminar. Ask us for details on creating a custom livestream quote for your next big project.
Creating an event that needs a bit more posh? We can help guide you through obtaining your liquor license, provide bartenders & hostesses, and connect you wish a number of caterers we work with – all based on the nature of your needs. We have hosted 5 course meals, elegant martini/tapa nights and high octane college ragers.
