Operation Red Nose Comes To Downtown T.O.

Insurance Bureau of Canada sponsored “Operation Red Nose” in downtown Toronto for the first time. We were in the Distillery District for a couple of cold nights recording all the action as teams of volunteers offered free rides home for people who thought they'd had a drink or two too much. Not only do volunteers drive you home, but they drive your car to your home as well. Almost all of the people who were picked up graciously agreed to be interviewed. This documentary footage will be used in promotional videos, Video News Releases and possibly in training modules for future volunteers.



Please don't drink and drive...


Awards Season

It’s okay to have fun sometimes. I put together a few fun videos for what amounts to Awards Season at TD Canada Trust. A couple of them ended up being distributed informally across the country electronically -- and therefore almost instantly. So, now if anyone asks if I have made any “viral videos”, I can say “yes”. Titles included: “We Are The Champions”,  “Stand Up For The Champions”, and the (very) whimsical “I Will Follow Tim”.



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 Champions

Hot off the press. TD's Reward and Recognition program for 2008 explained to the folks from coast to coast. This project was designed to be complementary in style to another video... which is described below.


"Jim is the master!"


Product Launch

Just putting the finishing touches on a handful of frantic video modules, crammed full of extreme sports footage, that will help launch "Avamys" in Canada. Brought to you by the good people at GlaxoSmithKline.


"They look great... !" wrote one of our clients.

"Agreed...Fantastic!!!!" wrote another.


EPC Connection

This year's EPC event in Chicago, "EPC Connection", was co-produced by RFID Journal and EPCglobal North America. I shot the event, and a video promoting their conference in October, 2008, is now available on-line.


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.


Cognos 2007

A walking, talking "rant" to convey your passion to the masses is always a good idea. Captured during a quick trip to Cognos HQ in Ottawa, Ontario.


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 " of the best event videos I have ever seen produced... a great example of corporate storytelling."
