Boomerang style GIFs
Are you looking for something different at your event?
Something that will engage your guests?
Something that will get engagement on social media?
Have your guests promote your brand or product?
Welcome to our Boomerang style GIF service
It is pure unadulterated fun and completely daft!
Guests of all ages and demographics love the system and we have used it at everything from a trampoline park opening to a very prestigious awards show in Mayfair.
We will work with you to create appropriate templates and a branded microsite to ensure great visual appeal which leads to greater online engagement.
An animated GIF is between 4 and 6 individual photos stitched together and looped.
In a Boomerang Style GIF approximately 12 photos are taken in 1 second and then animated. The animation loops back and forwards, hence the term boomerang.
Our system can take both types of GIF at the same event, as well as stills if they are required.
Great for brand promotion
The Boomerang/GIF system works on two levels;
- guests love the fun
- the guests promote the client’s brand
There aren’t many services at events that tick the above two boxes and this is one of the few that does.
The Boomerang service provides a fun and interesting activity for guests during an event. What is more important long term is the brand promotion.
As unique content is being provided to guests they will be happy to share to the socials.
Guests love posting content that is ‘different’ and you can be guaranteed that they will gain true enagagement as a guest’s Timeline will be disrupted.
We have a stationary booth with backdrop
The service we offer can be used roaming or as a fixed install.
We have a selection of backdrops from which to choose from, including green screen so that you can a digital background of you choice.
Should you want a bespoke backdrop then we can source these from printers we have connections with. There is a two week lead in time for this.
The Boomerang style GIF for Vitality was taken at a trade show for mortgage advisers. It’s fair to say it attracted significant attention!
We can roam at your event and PRINT!
As well as running our system as a static install we offer it as a roaming operation.
It will depend upon your event which route is best for you but we love the roaming option!
There are two main reasons to use the roaming option;
- connecting with guests that otherwise may not use a traditional ‘booth’ style set-up
- some events are perfect for this – such as a trampoline park opening!
We always use trained photographers whilst roaming to ensure the lighting and framing of guests looks great.
There are many events where our roaming option can work – think along the lines of;
- drinks receptions
- product launches
- experiential events

We have a portable boomerang style GIF machine
Our Roaming Boomerang and Gif System has been designed and manufactured in-house and consequently is unique in the marketplace.
On our first event (a product launch) with the system our photographer was being pulled from pillar to post by guests wanting to have boomerang style gifs taken of them.
It is massively popular with guests and will be a grreat addition to your event.
We can combine the ‘boomerang’ system with our ‘normal’ roaming GIF system if you want a mix of styles.
Now with VIDEO FX!
We now have the ability to offer short videos with creative effects added.
There are 30 basic effects that are available and these can be stacked together to create other effects.
We combine different sections of the recording and apply different effects to each.
On top of this we can;
- make each section slo-mo (up to a quarter speed)
- speed up each section (up to 2 times)
- reverse each section
The possibilities are immense, and we can work with you to create the perfect video FX for your event. Typically we will have two or three options created for each event.
Contact us to discuss your event and how we can work together.
Use with green screen video
We can use the system with a green screen so can add the backdrop of your choice into the scene digitally.
The digital backdrop can be either a single image or as in the case shown here a short video clip.
This opens up some great possibilities for creativity to engage your guests and their social networks even more.
or use animated templates…
Animation isn’t limited to the people who have their photo taken.
As you can see from the halloween template we can animate the templates also.
Get in touch if you have some creative ideas in mind. We may have some stock templates but we can have them created especially for your event.
Great for parties
The animated GIF & Boomerang System is great for parties.
When we first launched our system we had a pre-conceived thought that it would appeal mainly to a young party loving crowd.
How wrong we were!
Whilst it does appeal to that crowd we have found that it appeals to all ages from teens to pensioners and everyone in-between.
Part of its appeal is that it brings out the inner child in all of us.
The final imagery is simply fun and engaging and gets shared on social media a lot. T
We find that the more people use the system the more creative guests get and very often use it on multiple occasions or have multiple re-takes to ensure their GIF or Boomerang is just right.
Our system is equally at home at corporate parties, private parties and weddings. Any type of party really!
Book us and we can assure you your guests will have fun (and you are providing different entertainment which won’t be forgotten).
Simple to share
Everything about our system is geared around simple sharing.
As soon as a Boomerang/GIF has been taken the guest can share via;
In our experience most people share via text or email (largely due to forgetting login details!).
If text or email is chosen the guest will receive a link to retrieve their images. From there the guest can simply share to their social networks (there is an attachment option with email as opposed to a link).
Analytics and data capture
To assist with your ROI calculations we are able to track;
- photos taken
- number of views
- where images have been shared to
From this data you will be able to estimate the social media reach of your event.
Emails, phone numbers and twitter handles can be downloaded in a convenient Excel spreadsheet and we provide the functionality to send you or your clients a secure link with full access to all the event analytics.
We have a custom data capture form creator allowing you to customise what information you capture from your guests.
This includes; number fields, text fields, drop downs, multiple select and more.
We are of course GDPR compliant.
Our system is often used by companies to promote their brands.
As such they will have an age and sex profile they are aiming to target.
The analytics we provide can provide a breakdown of the age and sex of people using the system. Don’t worry it’s all anonymous!
If you think one of our systems may work for your event then give us a call or send us a message.
We will guide you through the options so you can see how our systems can work for you.
