Walking in Memphis

We recently had the opportunity to travel to Memphis, TN for a webcast, originating from the historic Peabody Hotel. We had an afternoon free before we started, so naturally, we had to experience a little bit of Memphis:

Atlanta Video Production moves into new office and studio space

It's official! We've completed our move to our new location on Peachtree Road! This space, about 5 miles north of Atlanta's Buckhead district, offers us a great space to merge our companies and provide clients a convenient location to both I-285 and I-85.

Atlanta Video Production's new studio announced

Forrester Media's recently completed merger with 4 Tay Video is leading us to a new name and a new home. We'll soon be doing business as Atlanta Video Production, a 4 Tay Video Company. Long ago, Mike Forrester secured the URL www.atlantavideoproduction.com and now is the time to use it! We've just launched a placeholder page for the new site and will build out the entire site in the coming weeks.

Our new building features a covered entry  and numerous amenities.

Atlanta Video Production will also be moving to a new home on north Peachtree Road in Atlanta. Renovations are underway to reconfigure office space and transform a portion of the building into a sound-proof studio. The 1600sf studio will included a dedicated 800sf green screen wall with floor cyc. The green screen area can be divided from the rest of the studio that will include set and interview areas. A make-up station, client area, kitchen, conference room, common areas, covered entrance and ample parking will compliment our new facility.

Our facility will have dedicated network connectivity allowing live webcasts to originate from the studio.

A portion of the building houses an existing tenant with the remainder available for lease to companies seeking a desirable address, convenient access to I-285 and MARTA as well access to other creative companies and our studio. We anticipate completion of the renovations in late June or early July with move-in to follow. In the interim, we continue to work at our 2250 N. Druid Hills Road office.

We are excited to offer our new facilities and capabilities to the Atlanta market. If we can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to call. We can be reached at 770-226-9250, or email us at solutions@forrestermedia.com.


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.
