This was produced when I was at Visuals Plus. We were doing a demo of the TVL electronic Presentation system and especially its uses in creating real time pre-programmed mixed still and video video rolls. I wrote the script, finding and calling for the clips and audio bits, Maurice Wininsky created an extraordinary piece of music linking those audio bits (changing keys to match the theme songs or ad jingles), Bob DesMarais was the genius behind the TVL work, and video effects and segment editing was by Mike Burrow. (sp?) Narrator was Steve Lutomski. It was actually shown on a big video wall which had it's own timed-to-the-music video effects as well (not shown here, although I have a tape of the live presentation as well somewhere). It was shown at RentCom in Illinois. This was before computers themselves could do any of this stuff. We were selling where video was going to go in the '90's. The clips were all from the 50's, 60's, and 70's (like a good oldies station). So if you're older than 55-60, you'll recognize everything. Bang-zoom! To The Moon!
This was the main video (or module) for Walgreen's 100th anniversary meeting in Nashville. It featured narrative in the voice of Myrtle Walgreen, Charles R. Walgreen's wife, based on her words in her autobiography. At the end, Mr. & Mrs. Walgreen make a brief appearance on stage as a prelude to the finale.
For regional meetings during Walgreens' 100th anniversary, this video was shown as a quick motivational recap of the company's history. It was a "warm-up" for the larger main stage video, seen elsewhere here.
An excerpt from the closing segments of a video celebrating a company's founder at his retirement. Rather than retiring at age 65, he led the company for 20 more years-- its best years. This excerpt celebrates his and his wife's charitable work, and also shows the finale.
