1. Businesses exert a great deal of effort to attract people to press conferences, trade shows, workshops and seminars. This video, that we edited for Analog Devices a few years ago, is a good example of how important events can be captured on video, edited to be concise, and then redeployed on your web site so that larger audiences can experience the event directly.

    On March 5, 2009, comScore released January 2009 data showing the U.S, Internet users viewed 14.8 billion online videos during the month, and increase of 4% vs. December 2008. Is your company taking advantage of this trend?

  2. One greatly underutilized asset is corporate knowledge. Capturing a panel discussion or forum for later distribution on the web is a cost-effective way to influence visitors to your web site.

    Here are excerpts of panel discussions: The first involves documenting a live event; the second is a staged event created specifically so that it could be videotaped.

    Capturing these events created the possibility for "knowledge on demand," which can be used and distributed, as needed.

  3. The first performance of The Chimney was in a small art and performance space in Rockport, MA. I actually shot the first two performances of the play on two successive nights, shooting from a camera position stage left on the first night, and stage right on the 2nd night.

    I captured the sound, in stereo, by 'flying' two Rodes # Matched cardioid Polar Pattern stage mics just over the performance space. Because of the length of the play, I shot in Standard Definition with my JVC5000u. The producer was adamant that r=the audience not be aware that the play was being videotaped.

  4. Just prior to Kenexa's merger with Salary.com, I produced a series of 30 or so testimonials shot in London, San Mateo, CA and Boston, MA.

    The purpose of the testimonials was to allow prospects to hear directly from customers the value and use they had for Salary.com services.

    I shot and edited the NYC testimonials, of which this is one example; for the other two cities, I set up each shoot and defined the specification for shooting style, lighting, etc. in a 5 page .PDF and then edited and compressed the video for the Salary.com web site.

  5. On a cold, grey New England morning at the Gloucester Marine Railways, the masts of the Schooner Adventure were pulled for inspection and repair.

    The last leg of the race to sail The Adventure again starting this fall is underway. This video documents the process and the extraordinary people who make pulling the masks on a 123 foot Essex-built fishing schooner look easy.
