Bounce AEG Christmas Tree Lighting Special

Henninger Hosts Bounce AEG for National Christmas Tree Lighting Special

When the Bounce AEG team knew they would be coming to Washington, DC to produce the 2017 National Christmas Tree Lighting special in 4K and HD on a tight deadline, they called Henninger.  Henninger had assisted in the production of the 2016 special as well.  Bounce AEG’s L.A.-based production team moved in for the weekend and worked around the clock with Henninger staff to make this year’s show a reality.

The ceremony itself was held at President’s Park at 5pm on Thursday, November 30th. Kathie Lee Gifford and Dean Cain hosted, presenting performances by a diverse group of performers including Craig Campbell, Wynonna, The Beach Boys, Boys II Bow Ties, The Texas Tenors and Mannheim Steamroller amongst others.  The First Family, including all of President Trump’s children, was present for the event.

Following the taping, the production team brought their footage to Henninger to work on the show.  The Bounce AEG team and our team worked Friday, Saturday and Sunday to deliver the HD stereo version of the program to Hallmark on Monday morning.  The program aired on Monday night.  Our teams then worked to deliver a 4K surround version of the program to DirecTV on Tuesday.  The 4K version will be airing on DirecTV on Saturday, 12/09 at 6pm PT and Sunday at 5pm PT on Channel 104.

Henninger is proud to have contributed editing, sound design and mix, edit suite rental and quality control (QC) services to the production.  The 2017 National Christmas Tree Lighting was produced by Bounce AEG, Brad Krevoy Television, The National Park Service and The National Park Foundation.
