A Soundcheck With Quavo Was So Loud It Shattered Tons of Glasses

One of the draws of movies is that they offer viewers a glimpse into a life they’ll likely never live themselves. This is especially true of films that feature huge party scenes. From the A-list celebrity musician cameos to expensive decor to gourmet food, these scenes in films often set the stage for a luxurious experience that helps provide an escapist illusion for viewers at home.

Of course, these settings often become the backdrop for ridiculous antics within the films that also are unlikely in real life. From dance-offs to brides jilted at the altar to family feuds coming to a dramatic head, party scenes help provide a setting for some important movie moments. 

One event planner weighed in on just what goes into creating scenes like these and shared a tale of a soundcheck gone wrong.

Event planner Karleen Roy weighed in on several luxury party scenes

Speaking with GQ, Karleen Roy — who is an event planner and founder of The Vanity Group — took the time to go through some iconic luxury party scenes and weigh in on just what it takes to make these moments come to life. 

She covered several movies from different genres, which goes to show that luxury party scenes are a fairly common movie occurrence. Roy speaks about the extravagant costs it would take to remake these moments in real life. For example, the helicopter in the Crazy Rich Asians party scene would probably cost $5,000 an hour, according to Roy’s expertise.

That price also doesn’t take into account the insurance requirements and the connections you need in order to make a private helicopter rental happen. In other words, this is not a party you can throw together quickly! 

Other movies that Roy took the time to explore included The Great Gatsby — which is famous for its extensive party scenes — and Step Brothers. She praised The Great Gatsby for its portrayal of “over hosting,” which is the practice of having so many staff members that guests never have to wait for food or drink, but she also points out that food and beverage are often “the most expensive line items” of any event.

As Roy takes a look at the films, she also slips in her own anecdotes and experiences — many of which are from celebrity-hosted events full of high-profile guests. She’s learned to think on her feet and get problems taken care of in a snap because her clients are not people likely to accept a subpar experience. 

As she’s discussing Step Brothers, she gets into the importance of music to the party experience and notes that a lot can go wrong. She’s had sound cut out in the middle of a party and performers so bad she had to pull the plug on them to keep the vibe …read more
