Mirrored CEO, Justin Lefkovitch, named one of Cablefax’s Overachievers under 30

Posted by | News | No Comments

“Congratulations to Cablefax’s 4th annual class of Overachievers Under 30, who were feted Wednesday afternoon in NYC. Colleagues, bosses and family members celebrated their achievements, which range from founding a successful experiential marketing agency to running complex financial transactions for a top US MSO to creating branded entertainment narratives for blue chip brands.

The honorees shared some of the best professional advice they’ve received, including some good counsel that even the industry veterans in the room took note of. Turner’s Jasmine Clennon, senior manager of ad innovation & programmatic solutions, cautioned against equating being busy with producing meaningful output. Mirrored Media founder/CEO Justin Lefkovitch reminded everyone that it’s important to stop and celebrate the little wins along the way. Along those lines, Nat Geo Wild communications manager Molly Mulrain advocated for stepping back and looking at the big picture. She recalled one moment when boss Jenn DeGuzman stopped her and said, “Molly, it’s PR not the ER.”

Congratulations to all of the 2017 Overachievers! Check out photos from the event in our Facebook album.”

Mene 24K Halloween Party, Hosted by Victoria Secret’s Alessandra Ambrosio and Darren Dzienciol

Mirrored Media Produces Mene 24K Halloween Party, Hosted by Alessandra Ambrosio and Darren Dzienciol

She is usually seen in a pair of angel wings, but Alessandra Ambrosio decided to take on another fantasy creature this year as she hosted the Mene 24k Halloween party in Los Angeles on Tuesday produced by Mirrored Media.

The Victoria’s Secret Model, 36, looked alluring in a cleavage-baring unicorn costume while joined by a long list of stars including 53-year-old rock singer Courtney Love. Alessandra cut a stylish figure as she showed off her glittery chest in a skin tight white bodysuit.

The Brazilian model’s sexy costume was paired with a pair of thigh-high white boot-heels, which she teamed over matching fishnet-tights. The lingerie clotheshorse showed off her look in sexy snap for Instagram, alongside the caption: ‘Sweet dreams are made of these…….#unicorn #styledbyinspiresmi’.

The sexy siren was joined at her event by rock legend Courtney Love. The widow of Kurt Cobain dressed as a 20s-inspired flapper girl, by wearing a black dress and a chic feathered boa. The 53-year-old finished her ensemble with black tights and matching ankle-strap heels. Courtney kept her shoulder-length blonde locks down, while accentuating her plumped pout with a red lip-color.

Also at the event was Alessandra’s finance Jamie Mazur, who attended the Halloween party as a furry werewolf. The Halloween mask was the same one Jamie sported earlier in the day when the doting parents took their five-year-old son Noah trick-or-treating. The happy couple were spotted at the Mene 24k party with millionaire James Goldstein, who seemed to have dressed as himself for the Halloween event.

Rapper Tyga was one of the more festive attendees, who transformed himself into Jim Carrey’s 1994 character from The Mask. The ex-boyfriend of Kylie Jenner sported a yellow suite, while also painting his face a bright green color. Actor Chuck Liddell was seen dressed up as a priest, while his wife Heidi Northcott looked like a sinful sexy maid.

Sony Extreme Music Halloween Party

Sony Extreme Music Halloween Party

The Extreme Music team enlisted their officemates at Mirrored Media to produce a spooktacular Halloween party for their employees, clients, and colleagues. The event took place at the legendary Whisky A Go-Go on the Sunset Strip and brought a wide array of exciting and scary elements for the 666 costumed guests in attendance.

Extreme and Mirrored took over both the first and second floors as well as the outdoor section in back of the venue; each area presenting guests with a different vibe.

On the first level of the venue, the main stage was home to the evening’s feature performances, including DJ William Lifestyle and Extreme CEO Russell Emmanuel’s cover band, Courtesy Flush. A 3D ghost hologram hovered just near the stage, while other decor items like projection-mapped ghouls, witches, and spiderwebs hung throughout the venue. A snake charmer with a boa constrictor weaved in and out of the crowd, putting many attendees on edge. Towards the end of the night, a costume contest turned friends into enemies as they battled for the grand prize of a Hans Zimmer-signed guitar, and other prizes like PlayStation 4s.

The second level contained an elaborate haunted house build that presented guests with a terrifying photo-opp. After walking through an eerie front yard and into a small, creepy house, guests were presented with a gift box which they were instructed to open. Before they could, out jumped a creepy clown, a devilish little person, or a mangled amputee. Guests had their photo snapped at that moment for the perfect reaction shot, which they were encouraged to share via social media. It was all in good fun, though, as one lucky winner found a PlayStation 4 grand prize in the box.

The custom-lit outdoor area featured a hot dog cart, made-to-order tacos, and a creepy Ronald McDonald passing out McDonald’s burgers and fries. For those wanting a little break, they could take a seat with the Tarot card or palm readers. Party-goers could also try their hand at the adult-themed ring toss, which featured a cemetary build with severed body parts, knives, and gravestones.

The party was an exciting, uninhibited, celebratory, and fittingly terrifying start to the Halloween season.

Face Forward Gala 2017 at the Taglyan Complex

In September of 2017, Mirrored Media teamed up with the Los Angeles-based non-profit organization, Face Forward, to produce its annual fundraising gala at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood. This year’s theme was “Arabian Nights”, which featured many Middle Eastern-inspired entertainment elements and decor.

Face Forward’s mission is to provide emotional and financial support for men, women, and children who have been victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, or other cruel criminal acts. Founders Deborah and David Alessi have have raised millions of dollars through Face Forward to give victims and survivors a fresh start with reconstructive surgery, housing, legal counsel, and more.

This year’s 8th Annual Gala began with happy hour on the beautifully manicured outdoor grounds of the Taglyan. This portion of the evening featured:

  • Live camel photo-opp
  • Sway pole performance
  • Arabian drummer
  • Belly dancers
  • 4-piece Arabian band
  • Snake charmer
  • Two step and repeats
  • Custom signage
  • Lamborghini and McLaren on display
  • Etihad Airlines flight attendant models
  • Specialty cocktails

Guests were invited to indulge in the tequila tasting bar, hookah & cigar lounges, and the henna tattoo station. Just inside the foyer, they could partake in a silent auction with a wide array of exciting prizes, such as signed sports memorabilia, luxury car rental, and high-end apparel.

The gala kicked off at 8pm, hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Keltie Knight, and with voiceover narration by famed movie trailer voice, Ashton Smith. Face Forward presented awards to both Kelly Osbourne and Mel B for their continued contributions to the foundation, and also honored some of the recent patients who have benefited from Face Forward’s tireless efforts.

Guests were treated to a gourmet three-course meal along with top-shelf cocktails. Each table was adorned with five-foot-high floral centerpieces, while the ballroom itself had drapery, cascades, and jabots that were all in line with the gala’s Arabian theme. Between nominees and speakers, guests were treated to live performance art including an LED cyr wheel acrobat and traditional Arabian dance with a live snake.

The main focus of the evening, the live auction, was a resounding success. Renowned auctioneer Yve Rojas brought charisma, excitement, and compassion to this live auction in which guests were bidding on many prestigious items generously donated by our sponsors. Prizes consisted of flights to Africa, Beverly Hills shopping sprees, culinary adventures, and an all-inclusive vacation to The Maldives.  

After the auction concluded, it was time to party! Joe King of The Fray warmed up the crowd before Robin Thicke entertained guests with his smash hit, “Blurred Lines”, among others. Nick Rosen and Friends, the house band from Hollywood’s Sayers Club, closed out the night with an energetic 90-minute set.
