Executive Interviews


This week, I got started on a series of interviews with TD Canada Trust executives. They will be part of a package that will play at a reward and recognition event in December.

Tornado Damage


Last month, at least five twisters touched down in Southern Ontario, damaging hundreds of homes. Yesterday, I began chronicling the recovery and restoration efforts of one homeowner, whose roof was swept away, rendering the interior of her house unlivable.

Real Estate


I've been working on a fun video promoting the services of a Realtor, as well as promoting the neighbourhood in which he lives and represents.

"The video is E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T."

Revised in early 2011, see it in action on YouTube.

SISO - Society of Independent Show Organizers


Just came back from the SISO conference in NYC. I'm creating a couple of videos for the organization.  

    

I participated in the conference as a Gold Sponsor... which is fancy way of saying I went there in the hope of drumming up some business. In fact, while we're on the topic, the elevator pitch for my exposition and trade show services is now a beautiful pdf.

A video promoting a future SISO conference can be viewed here.

Training Videos


I've been combing through my archives and making electronic versions of a lot of older projects. (You know, from the days before the internet ruined the world). This way I can easily send out copies of relevant projects to interested parties via a simple web-link.

Along the way I got the idea to make a version of my demo reel that only showed excerpts from Training Videos. Many of these clips have never appeared on a reel of mine. Not sure why.

You can find it here.

RFID Journal LIVE! 2009


Spent the week in Orlando, Florida at the annual RFID Journal LIVE! conference. For the fourth straight year, I'll be creating a fast paced, documentary-style, promotional video that will be embedded on the RFID Journal website.

ODIN Technologies


Created a short video highlighting ODIN Technology's presentation at RFID Journal LIVE! 2009... which went on to win Best in Show. I also collected a number of testimonials from audience members and edited together a compelling piece that can live on as a marketing tool. ODIN was quite proud of their win, and posted excerpts on their site as well as on YouTube. ODIN is based in West Virginia.

NAB


Spent five days this week at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference in Las Vegas. It was a good dose of professional development, as I attended dozens of seminars and presentations to keep me up to date on topics like file based High Definition shooting and editing, on-line video, and mobile video. Ideas for my own business definitely flowed forth…

 

 

 

Other than the tech stuff, I was also inspired by a couple of long seminars by the former senior editor of the PBS documentary series Frontline, as well as a talk by Malcolm Gladwell, author of the best selling books "The Tipping Point", "Blink" and "Outliers" – one of which I have actually read.

Retirement Video


One of the great things about working for the same client for many years is once somebody from that organization retires, there's a pretty good chance I can comb through old videos (and unusued footage) and cut together a pretty good retirement video. Which I just did for a retiring TD Bank executive. 

So, don't wait. Start planning your employees' retirement party today!
