Nestlé GLOBE “Kick-off” event coverage

EventVideo

The GLOBE technology teams from Nestlé recently held a briefing event to “Kick-Off” the year which we were invited to video record and edit. Using a four camera set-up, we recorded each of the presentations and then relocated for an hour mid event to run around recording sessions at a fun exhibition in the room next door. Each project team had their own stand to show off their projects and innovations to the other team members. It was a very hectic afternoon but fun to cover. For events like this, we find the post-production process is greatly streamlined by using Vimeo Pro to get rapid feedback from the client. As soon as a module was done, we post it into an album we set-up specifically for the project. We then send the album link to the client with a password to protect it. As soon as we added new files to the album, the client was sent an email update letting them know that a new or updated video was there to review. They could view the files virtually anywhere, which was useful as our client had a course in Switzerland mid way through the post production process. It also enabled them to quickly provide feedback for any changes which ensured the post production process kept moving along quickly. We find this off-the-shelf solution is greatly streamlining the delivery process on projects with lots of video modules to deliver.

The Amplify Festival 2013

EventVideo  , , ,

Every couple of years AMP holds a “must not miss” event that is actually open to the public as well as employees. It’s the Amplify Festival – basically, a week long innovation festival featuring some of the best minds from around the planet. As one participant commented “It’s like TED but for a WHOLE week!” For the 2013 Amplify, Screentime Communications looked after the technical staging of the main event as well as the multiple camera coverage of all the main sessions which were recorded for archive but also streamed out live by Viocorp. We also recorded a number of the ancillary events that took place during the week including the breakfast sessions with speaker panels that proved to be lively, entertaining gatherings. From our perspective, it was an exhausting but very rewarding project to be a part of with an unusual challenge that you get so absorbed in the content you forget you’re supposed to be working! For instance, take a look at our personal favourite presentation by Rachel Botsman on the Reputation Economy and we’re sure you’ll see what we mean. However, if you’re short on time, have a look at the highlights video we produced to see what you missed!

Vivid “Solstice Lamp” installation video

EventVideo  , ,

As part of the Amplify Festival project last year, we produced this little video about the “Solstice Lamp” installation at AMP as part of the the 2013 Vivid Sydney light festival. Vivid is a festival of light, music & ideas that takes place in Sydney every winter. As Vivid partners, Amplify hosted three installations in 2013. The main installation, on the front of the AMP Circular Quay building, echoed the “Transformation” theme of that year’s Amplify Festival which featured paper cranes as part of the theme. The music and movement elements of the installation blended beautifully to create a dynamic art piece and was particularly loved by kids as they soon discovered that as they moved around the installation area hoops of light followed them and encircled them whenever they stopped. And once a big enough group was formed, the music would change and the theme’s flying paper cranes would appear on the outside of the building and fly off up the building. For us, it was fun to shoot as it leant itself to time-lapse sequences and some low light challenges – a GoPro on the end of a monopod waved above the area and near the laser projection proved fruitful too!

EO South Pacific “Ignite” videos

EventVideo  ,

In November 2013, EO (Entrepreneurs’ Organisation) South Pacific Region held an event for global members in Sydney featuring guest speakers Tim Ferriss (author of 4 Hour Week, 4 Hour Body, etc), Paul Cave (Bridge Climb founder), and a number of other motivating business speakers. A year out, to promote the event, we produced a video to launch the event that focused primarily on Sydney as a great destination as, at that point, speakers were still be negotiated. Subsequently, once a few key speakers had been confirmed, we updated the video to focus more on promoting the event content.  And the promotion obviously helped as the event was sold out four months before it took place.
