TD Canada Trust Champions


For the last while, I've been working on a series of modules to honour some award winners at TD Canada Trust. I interviewed their bosses and we captured some fun shots of the winners - all in a lively session spread over two days. Here's what a single frame of it looked like after my editor and graphics guy got a hold of the footage...

"Your video on the huge screen looked gorgeous. Everyone raved about it... even the really big bosses. Thanks so much...it really worked brilliantly."

In fact, 78% of the attendees who filled out questionnaires gave the videos five out of five... the highest score my client had ever seen.

Now, it's one of my case studies.

RFID Journal LIVE Canada


Just finished shooting the first ever "RFID Journal LIVE!" event in Canada. This will be my sixth video for a variety of clients within the blossoming RFID industry over the last four years - starting with a video of one of the first successful RFID demos at the Auto-ID Lab at MIT in Cambridge, Mass. In fact, at the conference, I met two instructors from L’Université de Sherbrooke who still show that video as part of their RFID course.

Dutch Tilt


A busy fall continues, as I just returned from Noordwijk, The Netherlands, which is about 40km from Amsterdam and overlooks The North Sea. The growth of "RFID Journal" continues as the leading RFID authority on the web staged a convention for their growing European audience. Earlier in the year I created a video promoting future conferences in North America... and I'll be doing the same for "RFID Journal LIVE Europe 2007" with this new footage. All of the videos are destined to be posted on the company's web site.

Back from Montreal


Shot and conducted about 50 sit-down interviews in a single day at a conference in Montreal, while my trusty editor worked feverishly in another room to digitize the footage and put it all together. What often takes a month or more, we swung in about 36 hours. All for a showing the next day. Yikes. The project was also shot on HDV.

Cognos Performance 2006


I've done a handful of videos over the years for Canada's largest software company, Cognos -- based in Ottawa. Just went to Chicago to interview a rep from one of their biggest customers, IBM. It's all part of series of videos that will be shown as part of their annual, 30 city road show, including a high octane "meeting opener".
