The OHNC is a Ft. Lauderdale, FL-based pioneer of and global leader in the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for the treatment of severe neurological traumas. OHNC's founder and Medical Director, Richard Neubauer, M.D., retained me to consult on, design and recreate numerous key media elements, including its logos (“HBO2,” “Neur02”), and provide copy writing and overall marketing analysis & recommendations.
One highlight of my work was writing and directing the production of this video documentary, which contains dramatic footage of pediatric patients before, during and after HBOT at OHNC. This was particularly challenging as much of the raw source video was extremely poorly produced (shaky hand, etc.), had degraded due to salt-water air, there was severe color washout, etc. Hundreds of hours of raw footage had to be analyzed, key sequences isolated, then brought to a high-tech video processing facility where, under Jon's direction, the video was stabilized, color-corrected, and stitched together to make it presentable.
Here is Dr. Neubauer's letter of recommendation for me (which can be downloaded at scribd.com/full/32151839?access_key=key-2h6yrok8qn7wtzwblu8q).
“When I retained Jon, I had high hopes, but no expectations. Until that time, the Ocean Hyperbaric Neurologic Center (OHNC) had been ill-served by its public relations and creative/media consultants. I feel this was primarily due to their inability to immerse themselves in and appreciate HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) technology, the dire need for it to become a widely-available option in neurological rehabilitation, and the subtle nuances that an endeavor as challenging as ours necessitates.
"Jon has proven to be a multi-talented, exceptionally valuable asset to OHNC. Jon's work has encompassed a broad range of areas, including copy and script writing/editing, designing storyboards and key graphics, planning and producing video presentations, and developing website content & architecture. In many instances, this work required that Jon research, analyze, deconstruct, then reconstruct OHNC's existing media, and consult on overall strategies – and even business operations, down to the smallest detail.
"In all of the above work realms, Jon has performed exceptionally well, and the results became apparent soon after our affiliation began. OHNC has received compliments from all over the world regarding the media that Jon reconstructed (particularly our videos and website). Our business has increased significantly, and we are much better organized. I feel that Jon's exceptional skills, character, dedication, attitude, and attention to detail would be of great value to any organization that is fortunate enough to become affiliated with him."
