Interviews and more interviews

The new year has kicked off with a bang, or perhaps more appropriately, a question. Lots of questions, in fact. We've been on a run with interviews, asking lots of questions to our guests. Topics have ranged from prescription medicines to the value of a college degree and seemingly everything in between.

We've been using a variety of cameras for these interviews. Some clients have specific requests, others leave it up to us to choose. We pick the camera that best suits the type of work involved and either pull from our in-house gear or we rent from one of the video rental houses in Atlanta.

Our current in-house selection includes the Canon C-300, Canon 5D Mark III DSLR and the Sony EX-1R. Depending on the project, we can usually use one of our cameras rather then needing to rent gear, saving the client money on the production.

Working with the Auburn Avenue Research Library

We're excited to be working on a series of interviews for the Fulton Public Library system and their Auburn Avenue Research Library. We've conducted four interviews with local authors, architects and artists and will be editing the videos for display as part of the rotating exhibitions in the library.

One call webcast

We recently completed a three day project for a client that included providing all staging, pipe and drape, in-room TV monitors in addition to the full crew, camera, intercom, audio, switcher and gear necessary for a live streaming event. One call to Forrester Media allowed our Washington, DC-based client to arrange the entire production. Here are a few photos from the setup of the webcast.

Answering the call

My grandfather was a volunteer fireman a century ago, so I suppose there's always been a little bit of firefighter blood in me. When Atlanta Fire Rescue approached Forrester Media about producing a new video to be shown at a conference, I was fully involved (pun intended).

We spent five days conducting interviews, visiting firehouses, filming b-roll and even going on a couple of calls with the firefighters, all to capture the footage needed for this important presentation.

The video was shown at the Fire Rescue International conference held in Atlanta in August during the opening keynote.

It was a privilege to work on this project and honor the men and women that keep Atlanta safe.


Fast and Furious Air Fresheners

I'll admit that this was a sweet project. Literally. Fast and Furious has an extensive line of air fresheners and wanted to reach out to new distributors with their first video production - and we were happy to help. We spent a day at their Atlanta facility filming all the different elements required to develop, manufacture, package and ship their line of products. And the sweet smell of their facility made it almost intoxicating! 

I'll also admit that I've become a believer in their product. They let us pick our favorite scents to try and they work. Often one pump is enough to eliminate an odor or freshen the interior of a car. Say goodbye to the old pine tree air freshener hanging from your rear-view mirror and give Fast and Furious a try.
