NTEA: Work Truck Show


Time flies. Last week I covered my fourth consecutive Work Truck Show for the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA), of Farmington Hills, Michigan. Held for the second year in a row in Indianapolis, see the promotional video for next year's show here. An excerpt from this video is re-purposed as the promo video for the co-located Green Truck Summit. See it here. Attendance records were achieved for both shows, for the second year running.

Miami


Spent a couple of weeks working on a pair of projects for Bombardier. One project involved putting together video modules to help in efforts to win new business, which also included a tour of GO Transit in Toronto. The other was designed to help communicate goals and objectives to the North American workforce, which included a visit to a maintenance facility in the Miami area.

Reward & Recognition


In January and February, I made two separate trips to beautiful Palm Springs, California, where three separate groups from TD Canada Trust were honoured for their accomplishments. And, while they were at it, they had a little fun, too. I'll be fashioning three videos that will live on as a keepsake, and will also be used as an incentive for future award winners.

More TD


Been having lots of fun interviewing scores of branch managers for an upcoming conference. This year we pursued a sports theme to motivate the troops. Created a rousing, themed  "Meeting Opener", too.

PCA


My client was hired to help re-brand the Progressive Contractors Association of Canada, and I put together a power packed three minute video that played at the org's AGM in October. The project included shoots in Edmonton and Hamilton. See it in action here.

TD Canada Trust


In September, I videotaped some TD execs in front of a green screen and put them in a bunch of scenes from real movies.  To be shown at a big conference. Tons of fun for all.

Going Social


I've created a couple of videos for social media expert Barry Libert, formerly of Mzinga, who has created a new venture, Open Matters. Both videos feature his skills as a speaker. One version includes testimonials from attendees at an event in New York City, including one of my favorite sound bites in a while: "A lot of twittering. My Face. Your Face. It lent some clarity to it, that's for sure." See one here.

Bombardier


Over the summer, I worked on three videos for Bombardier. Their TrackSafe technology was merely a prototype at this point last year. In July, they rolled out the real thing, at an event for industry insiders at their test track near Kingston, Ontario. I put together a video of the launch, as well as a longer lasting promotional video. See the video of the launch here. See the other, in HD, here.

I also completed a video that helps communicate the new vision of North American operations for an internal audience.

Beam Global


For Beam Global, I put together a funky video highlighting all of their marketing successes from coast to coast over the first part of the year. For use at a business meeting, and designed to pump up the troops. "Brilliant!"
