This is the very end from National Geographic's 125th Gala held in June 2013. I created all the video elements including the digital curtains that wipe on and off the various images. A live band played the Nat Geo theme, so the conductor gave me a click track that I used to time the images. Then the sizzle reel I edited played in the center screen which resulted in the kabuki being lifted to reveal the explorers on stage.
This video is for Lockheed Martin engineers to use when they talk to school groups about becoming an engineer. It highlights all the cool things that National Geographic and Lockheed Martin engineers design to solve basic to complex problems.
National Geographic held a fundraising gala for its 125th anniversary and this sizzle reel was shown towards the beginning of the evening. It is a celebration of the history of National Geographic and the various explorations and discoveries it has made possible.
