Remote Content Production & Virtual Event Streaming
The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the need for remote content production with virtual events. Going virtual is a new challenge that every event coordinator is faced with to make the show go on. Its a new thing for us too, because we're so used to physically filming events. While virtual methods of recording (Zoom interviews and cell phone video) aren't the same cameras, lenses, lighting, and audio that we'd provide on a physical production, our creative editing crafts this kind of raw footage into an authentic story. Once the stories are finalized, we can provide you with a full "run of show" video file to premiere on social media, or, use our services to virtually live stream to Zoom, Youtube, and Facebook.
We've also resumed our in-person filming operations for clients in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. We will wear masks indoors and outdoors and request on-camera talent only to remove a mask when we are ready to roll cameras. We can even provide a wireless client monitor so you can approve our shots without having to look at our camera's screen. Some of our productions include virtual fundraiser programs, day-in-the-life documentaries, virtual awards galas, virtual High Holy Day Services (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippor), and virtual university commencements.
Here some behind the scenes photos over the past year:
Example: 2021 Virtual Garden School Gala
Garden School in Jackson Heights, Queens hired us to produce their virtual fundraising gala via Zoom Webinar this past April. We provided on-location video production services with a Director of Photography, Sound Mixer, and Teleprompter Operator. All pre-recorded content was edited within a month of filming, just in time for their live stream. We remotely streamed and directed Garden's Head of School, and live GiveSmart URLs through our streaming software. This virtual gala raised Garden School over $100,000.
Example: 2020 Norman Vincent Peale Awards for Positive Thinking
Blanton-Peale Institute and Counseling Center in NYC hired us to produce 5x video packages for their 2020 Virtual Gala. We creatively filmed the President's welcome and introduction video in one take, and captured a socially distanced conversation with an honoree.
Example: VLANJ Goes Virtual: A Dining in the Dark Experience
Have you ever wondered what it's like to experience the world as a person without sight? In this virtual fundraiser, learn about the life of a person with vision loss through a series of stories featuring cooking and dining, orientation and mobility, and assistive technology.
The Vision Loss Alliance of NJ hired us to produce their annual gala in a virtual format (Zoom Webinar). We utilized prerecorded testimonial interviews from 2019 and filmed new content with all recommended safety precautions for COVID-19.
Example: Stevens 2020 Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony
We filmed and edited the multi-camera in-person commencement speeches to flow like a live show, with social distancing and minimal crew (1-person). Those deliverables were then sent to the vendor, Stage Clips, who produced the reading of graduate names, and the final video was premiered on YouTube.
Example: Worship for Christmas Eve 2020 - First Congregational United Church of Christ
We worked with Pastor Mark and Music Director Jeff to film and edit their Christmas Eve 2020 Worship Service in a high quality manner and minimal crew (1-person). With proper scheduling and social distancing, we successfully filmed musical performances with flute, violin, piano, vocalists, and a brass quartet. Post-production for their full length edit was turned around in less than one week.
Example: Kol Dorot Virtual Rosh Hashanah Morning Services
We collaborated with Kol Dorot's Rabbi and Cantor to film and edit all of their High Holy Day Services in a high quality manner and minimal crew (1-person). After we filmed the multi-camera in-person production and edited those services in full, the Rabbi and Cantor did their own filming and spliced in their edits of the choir, page numbers, graphics, Torah readings, and announcements. It was an absolute pleasure being a part of this meaningful production for such a great community!
Example: Kol Dorot Virtual Erev Yom Kippur Kol Nidrei Services
Another collaboration with Kol Dorot for their Erev Yom Kippur Kol Nidrei Services.
Example: Stevens New Student Convocation
We creatively filmed this new student convocation program for the incoming class of 2024 with 4x cameras.
Example: Physicians for Reproductive Health, "Advocates on the Frontlines"
Physicians for Reproductive Health reached out to us in early May to remotely capture a Zoom panel discussion and edit other video assets into viewable pieces for their virtual fundraiser, "Advocates on the Frontlines." Once all content was edited, we rehearsed the flow of the live Zoom Webinar stream and this is how the final 25-minute show came out:
Physicians significantly exceeded their fundraising goals through this virtual event.
