A NEW trailer from Samsung and Notting Hill Carnival 2020: Access All Areas has launched today – and it gives us a first look at what to expect from this weekend’s first ever virtual carnival.
The trailer works to capture the essence of what this year’s special virtual carnival will offer. It has been created by Samsung, an official partner of the event.
Content from Notting Hill Carnival: Access All Areas’ digital schedule – including percussionists, steel drums, dance performances and parades –features in the short clip.
The previews are intercut with extracts from a series of mini films shot in 8K by Samsung, designed to bring to life the “colours of carnival”.
There are also appearances from chef Levi Roots, who is seen cooking up a carnival-inspired feast, Brazilian Samba-Reggae band Batala and masqueraders dressed in the incredible carnival costumes by London-based designer Melissa Simon-Hartman, who designed costumes for Beyoncé’s Black is King visual album.
Carnival will kick off on London’s Piccadilly screen with the exclusive trailer and a live countdown before the full schedule starts at www.nhcarnival.org.
For those wanting to “watch in 8K” the Samsung mini-series will play via QLED 8K at Samsung KX in Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross over the entire bank holiday weekend and across the Notting Hill Carnival YouTube channels.
