SFS Celebrates its 5th Birthday in Style

The team here at LA Media were chuffed to be invited along to Screen Facilities Scotland‘s (SFS) 5th birthday party. The venue was an inspired choice, the SWG3 (Studio Warehouse in Glasgow) gave the night a proper media industry vibe! Packed with lots of industry colleagues and SFS customers, it was a great night of celebration and networking.

It was also the perfect opportunity for our team to meet up with old media colleagues and friends for a good old natter. SFS’s guests were treated to a cool showreel showcasing the talents of SFS members – and what a talented bunch they are!

There was also copious amounts of free Glasgow’s Makar fiery chili gin on offer to the guests all night. The LA Media crew are whisky lovers by nature but we do also consider ourselves to begin aficionados, and it has to be said Makar’s make a fantastic gin! Well worth trying if you get the opportunity to. You just can’t beat made in Glasgow.

Lily McLeod, the daughter of Joanne McLeod at Artem (creative effects and prop marking gurus) was responsible for treating the SFS guests to mouth-watering melt in the middle meringues, which came in a myriad of colours.

We pondered taking one back to our director Justin, who couldn’t make it due to work commitments, but ate them instead on the way home – they were just too good to wait. Lily is a talented and charming self-taught baker from Glasgow. Lily’s Instagram is full of #bakinggoals and delightful ideas.  You can see more of her creations or even order a cake via her Facebook page, Lily Bakes.

But it wasn’t all sweet treats, SFS treated us to sumptuous meaty hot dogs, salty popcorn, and even a kick-ass photo booth with a plethora of props. See photos and note this was before we cracked into the gin bar! It was a wonderful night and real joy to catch up with old friends. We are so happy to have attended and we were really impressed by the event put on by SFS.
