RFID Journal LIVE! Europe


...spent a week in Amsterdam covering "RFID Journal LIVE! Europe" for RFID Journal. It was their third annual European event... and it was the second consecutive conference I covered for them on that side of the Atlantic.  Videos I produce for RFID Journal appear on their website and promote future conferences.

Cognos Acquires Applix


 

Cognos has acquired leading analytics company Applix, and our team quickly put together a video that introduced key executives to the workforce. When we were given the green light, the execs were scattered around the world, so we hired local crews, performed phone interviews, and artfully assembled the footage as fast as we could, once our beloved international courier delivered the tapes to us. Video compressions were made and uploaded overseas so we could get transcripts done which helped us get a head start on the edit. All for a very tight deadline.

 

As I often say, there are many ways to skin a cat.

TD Canada Trust: Every Moment Counts


I've been busy creating a video that aims to explain the value of the little "moments of truth" that can occur between TDCT employees and their customers. Actual stories were re-created graphically, and the narrative was driven by excerpts from a touching interview with a TD exec.

RFID Journal


At the beginning of May, I went down to Orlando to shoot "RFID Journal LIVE! 2007". A video was created to promote future conferences and appears on the organization's website, and is now also one of my case studies. Some footage from the video is to be included in a program about RFID scheduled to run on Maryland Public Television.

UPDATE: One kind viewer on the web went out of his way to contact my client directly and called it "...one of the best event videos I have ever seen produced... a great example of corporate storytelling."

Accessibility and Customer Service


Most recently, I've been working on a documentary style project for the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services. It's all about improving the level of customer service people with disabilities receive. The project featured in-depth interviews with people with a variety of disabilities. Five customized versions, targeting five different sectors of Ontario's economy, were produced and distributed on DVD.
