A Diversity of Experience
We know how to do video. Period. So if you don’t see the exact type of video you have in mind featured on our website, we either have a sample that isn’t posted or we’ll definitely be able to produce it for you. We know how to ask the right questions and get the information we need from you to make your vision come to life through video.
We cover the ‘video waterfront’ from A to Z. From working with a huge international company such as ABN AMRO bank to produce their compliance video to filming a Zebra act, we’ve been engaged in some very interesting projects in the past year. Here are some of them:
Our two-person video crew just finished production on a promotional video for the Davidson Group’s Marriott Suites hotel in Rosemont. Our client wanted this shot from the point of view of a person walking into the hotel, being greeted by staff, touring the rooms and concluding with a big good-bye from hotel workers. To accomplish this perspective, we shot this from a luggage cart being pushed throughout the hotel by our production assistant. Whatever it takes!
We filmed “We Gotta Bingo”, the bawdy production playing at the Chicago Theater Works. This was a two camera shoot and edit. Aside from filming the entire production, we produced a 30-second commercial that they’re using to promote the performance.
We produced three exercise videos and three sizzle reels for the Twisted Angel exercise studio. We did a three camera shoot, all filmed in one long day, with post production work done by one of our creative editors. The videos focus on stretching and strengthening exercises for golfers. Who knew that golfers need to stretch and strengthen their shoulders to avoid injuries? Our client plans to sell these videos online.
An unusual request came from an art collector who wanted us to document the installation of a large painting being hoisted up six stories into his condo and then mounted on his living room wall. We supplied a three camera crew to film this project and then provided an edit. Now the video is playing next to his painting and is part of the total experience.
Earlier this year we filmed a jazz session at Andy’s Jazz Club. It featured some very talented musicians performing for an appreciative audience.
We also produced our second set of 5 videos for the Chicago Hearing Society and CHOICES, geared towards teaching parents of deaf children how to foster a love of books. These were two camera shoots filmed over a couple of days, followed by several days of editing, including English and Spanish voice over, integrating the signing interpreter into the video, making several hundred DVD’s, preparing the videos for YouTube, closed captioning, plus other elements.
The Honeywell-Quest Stronger Together shoot and edit documented a conference at the downtown Palmer House celebrating and commemorating the merging of these two companies. The ‘sizzle reel’ we edited highlighted leaders of these companies, networking, trade booths and other events.
The OLC Training and Conference Center video featured testimonials from doctors about this state of the art medical facility in Rosemont, Illinois.
We can’t forget the motion graphics video we produced for RCN. This video plays at the House of Blues, promoting RCN’s various services.
We produced many more videos, but you get the picture. We know video and can adapt our skills to produce any type of interview, presentation, event, training, promotional or other business video production you need. Let us know how we can help!
