Tribute to the Crafts (2023)

Custom Signage for Tribute to the Crafts

Astek is thrilled to be sponsoring The American Cinematique’s second Tribute to the Crafts! Annually, this event recognizes artisans and crew members behind the camera. Focused on celebrating those at the heart of cinematography, individuals will be nominated for 15 different categories relating to elements of filmmaking. We had the honor of printing several items for the event, including wayfinding gator boards and signage showcasing other sponsors and recognitions.
