Indie Ogden Awards Slow Motion Video Booth

In his novel examining American excess and frivolity, F. Scott Fitzgerald used “The Great Gatsby” characters Tom and Daisy Buchanan to illustrate the decadent nature of the 1920s.

“(The Buchanans) smashed up things and creatures,” Fitzgerald wrote in his 1925 masterpiece. “And then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

Well, the Buchanans never partied with Ogdenites.

The flapper-themed, 4th annual Indie Ogden Awards were held Friday — an event spilling over with moxy, sequins and more black feathers than a gothic aviary. Organized by the fearless Mikaela Platter — the matriarch of all things Indie Ogden — the evening’s proceedings rewarded the people, places and organizations that make Ogden the gem of the Rockies. Everybody in attendance at the 24th Street Marriott deserved the good time that was put on by Platter & Co., and everyone who scored an Indie win was and is a commendable contributor to the Ogden community.

As a sponsor of the festivities, local production company Circa3 was on hand with a RED camera (as well as feathers, pom-poms and other miscellanea that some poor sap had to vacuum up) to put on a slow-mo video booth as well as capture some of the night’s many highlights.

If you weren’t lucky enough to dine and dance the night away in person, get a glimpse of the magic by watching a recap of the night as filmed by the dapper Circa3 gents at 160 frames per second.

Kudos to everyone who made Friday’s shindig a glistening, glittery reality. We can’t wait until next year!
