(ATLANTA, GA December 2015) – On Saturday, December 19, 2015, a team of six students from The Art Institute of Atlanta had the opportunity to film the 2015 Mayor’s Masked Ball. The students were tasked with covering the red carpet, event program and collecting b-roll of the overall event. They are currently editing a recap video. 

The Mayor’s Masked Ball is one of metropolitan Atlanta’s signature fundraising galas and premier social events of the holiday season. Founded 31 years ago by former Mayor Andrew Young and Billye S. Aaron, its purpose is to involve celebrities, dignitaries, civic leaders, volunteers, public officials and other supporters. The goal of the event was to raise $1,000,000+ for United Negro College Fund (UNCF). Event attendees included Mayor Kasim Reed, Atlanta City Council, Cox Media Group, Home Depot executives, celebrities and more.

 “I am truly proud of the fact that our students got this opportunity to evolve their creativity on such a meaningful platform," said Myvett Newton, President of The Art Institute of Atlanta.
