November 4th, 2023, will be a milestone for BMA Media Group because the agency will produce a historic celebration at one of the most unique locations in BMA Event production history. This gala will be held at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California, celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 40. 

IBEW Local 40 represents studio and special effects electricians who work behind the scenes when doing their job; however, at this event, they will be front and center. BMA is proud to produce this one-of-a-kind event at a one-of-a-kind location for the electricians who have contributed to some of the best motion pictures of all time. 

All aspects of the event will be planned and implemented by the turn-key event management staff of BMA Media, including decor, catering, production, video, guest speakers, entertainment, gifts, and more, all encapsulated in a Hollywood theme.

Warner Brothers Studios & IBEW Local 40 share 100 years of Hollywood Magic!   

Warner Brothers Studios has created 100 years of unforgettable features that will stay with us for many years to come. The company was founded in 1923 by four brothers involved in the movie theater business. Over the years, they became one of the “Big Five” American film studios and continue to produce successful and well-known TV and films today. 

While IBEW Local 40 members’ contributions to these films go largely unnoticed, they have been monumental. The studio’s timeless motion pictures include Don Juan, Casablanca, Blazing Saddles, The Matrix, Harry Potter, The Dark Knight, Shawshank Redemption, Goodfellas, Looney Tunes and Scooby Doo. All of which are a critically acclaimed success that viewers will never forget.  

This exciting night in November will be a true celebration of a century-old collaboration between these entities that have thrilled and entertained the world!! 

Lights, Camera, BMA Media in Action!

Attendees will receive a commemorative anniversary book BMA is researching on the local’s storied Hollywood history. All of the research, content, editing, design and layout will be created by BMA’s expert events team, and sponsorship sales will be made for the production and union printing of the book.
